Nicely finished Red Rolfe Hillerich & Bradsby signature model bat (pre-model #) displays evidence of heavy game use including ball, stitch, bat rack and cleat marks.

He scored at least one-hundred runs every year he was a regular. Length: 33.75 inches. Weight: 33 ounces. SCD Authentic Grade: A7.5. LOAs from Dave Bushing/SCD Authentic and John Taube & Vince Malta/PSA DNA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,160.00
