1962 Bob Gibson All-Star Game Bat
Starting Bid - $1,500.00, Sold For - $3,450.00
This 1962 Bob Gibson All-Star Bat was issued to Gibson specifically for use in the All-Star Game. All-Star bats, like World Series bats, are favorites with collectors both because they are specifically made for use in a special game(s), and because they can be dated to a very specific year. This bat was recently obtained directly from Bob Gibson. It is an outstanding All-Star Game bat made for his use at the 1962 All Star Game at Chicago's Wrigley Field. The H&B 125 model #F4 bat reads "1962 All Star Game Gibson Chicago" in block letters on the barrel. A few similar Gibson bats have hit the market during the past year, simply because Gibson has recently released them. Years back, there were literally dozens of Killebrew bats around when he made them available. No one saved more bats than Killebrew, yet they have virtually disappeared from the marketplace. In comparison, there are only six Gibson bats which have hit the market. There will be no more, and they will disappear as quickly as they surfaced. An exceptional bat from one of baseball's fiercest competitors. Length: 34.5 inches. Weight: 32 ounces. SCD Authentic Grade: A7. LOAs from Dave Bushing & Dan Knoll/SCD Authentic and John Taube & Vince Malta/PSA DNA. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $2,500/$3,500. SOLD FOR $3,450.00
