1921-1931 Edd Roush Pro-Model Bat

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,410.00

This H&B signature model (predating model numbers) bat dates to the 1921 to 1931 manufacturing period, a time in which Edd Roush was one of the most feared hitters in the National League. The bat features a dark finish and deep barrel stampings, especially with regard to Roush's facsimile signature. Significant use is displayed in the form of grain swelling, surface marks, cleat marks, moderate deadwood on the back of the barrel, and a seven-inch crack in the handle. The deadwood has been repaired with approximately 43 tiny "bat boy" nails. There is evidence of side writing on the barrel, but it has faded beyond legibility. Edd Roush was one of the greatest hitters of his era. Although he won the National League batting title in 1917, his finest seasons occurred in the mid 1920s. From 1920 through 1926 Roush never batted lower than .323 and twice batted over .350. He retired after the 1931 season with a .323 lifetime average and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1962. Length: 36 inches. Weight: 37 ounces. Graded A7 by MEARS (base grade of 5, with 3 points added for use and a half point each deducted for the handle crack and the deadwood). This bat has been consigned to this auction directly from the personal collection/inventory of world-renowned bat authenticator David Bushing. LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,410.00
