The offered 1930s bat was turned as a retail model, to be sure, but it is decorated with a signature that is "big league," indeed. This (32.6-oz/36") Hillerich & Bradsby Lou Gehrig block-letter store model is autographed on the barrel by Hall of Fame skipper Joe McCarthy (d.1978). Executed in black ink, McCarthy’s penning is interrupted at various stages and maintains ("4") strength and clarity. The uncracked ash shows moderate use and features a Hornsby-style knob like the ones on Gehrig's "real" weapons. PSA/DNA hologram #E35980 (no basic cert).
