1937-2007 Limited-Edition Hall of Fame Induction Brown Bat Collection (10)
Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $705.00
In the early 1980s the Baseball Hall of Fame began issuing brown bats in commemoration of each Hall of Fame induction year. The bats, produced by H&B, are similar in design to World Series black bats and bear the date of the induction, as well as the names of the inductees, stamped in gold along the barrel. These bats were only available through the Hall of Fame and were limited in number. Production numbers varied with each separate issue, but every bat was uniquely numbered. Offered here is a collection of nine Hall of Fame induction bats (eight different), plus a commemorative Hall of Fame 50th Anniversary Bat. The year of each Hall of Fame induction bat in this collection, including the stamped limitation number (in parenthesis), is as follows: 1937 (118/500), 1938 (284/500), 1951 (281/500), 1974 (483/500), 1999 (715/1500), 1999 (961/1500), 2001 (673/1000), 2005 (508/1000), and 2007 (451/2007). The black Hall of Fame 50th Anniversary Bat, issued in 1989, features the name of every Hall of Fame inductee between the years 1939 and 1989 stamped on the barrel in white lettering. All of the bats are in Near Mint to Mint condition and are perfect for display. Total: 10 bats. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $705.00
