1961 New York Yankees World Champions Black Bat

Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $1,057.50

The presentation of black bats to players, friends of the club, and dignitaries as a keepsake of championship seasons is a tradition that began in the mid 1930s, and continues to this day. Presented is a pristine example of perhaps the most desirable of all postwar black bats: the 1961 Yankees. The black H&B commemorative bat is stamped "New York Yankees World Champions 1961" and features the gilt-stamped names (either in block letter or facsimile autograph) of thirty-three team members including Mantle, Maris, Berra, Ford, Houk, Kubek, Richardson, and Skowron. The 1961 Yankees, of course, need no introduction and are one of the "magic" teams of baseball history. This is an ideal presentation black bat example from this legendary powerhouse team. Near Mint. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,057.50
