Offered for sale is a truly exceptional piece of baseball history - one of two signature Hillerich & Bradsby B211 bats, specially manufactured for the legendary Yogi Berra for the two All-Star Games in 1960. With Berra being a three-time American League MVP, ten-time World Series Champion, and first-ballot Hall of Famer, it's no surprise that high-end offerings of his game-used gear are highly sought after. However, this bat stands apart, having been characterized by bat expert John Taube of PSA/DNA as having "excellent" use, with clear evidence of ball marks, stitch impressions, and light pine tar on the uncracked handle. Measuring 35" in length and weighing 34.5 ounces, the model "B211" is stamped into the knob, and Berra's iconic No. "8" is marked in black pen. With the LOA suggesting it is likely Berra added this bat to his pennant-winning arsenal after the All-Star break, it truly represents the best of the best. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of Yogi Berra history - the best Berra bat ever offered for sale.
This museum-quality Hillerich & Bradsby B211 bat, featured in Joe Orlando's "Legendary Lumber," boasts a flawless 10/10 black sharpie signature from the great Yogi Berra next to his branded facsimile on the barrel. Graded a perfect GU 10 by PSA/DNA, it is one of only four Berra bats to receive this distinction from his entire career in the PSA/DNA bat population. Accompanied by LOAs from PSA/DNA (GU 10) and Beckett (Auto Grade 10), as well as an additional LOA for the autograph from PSA/DNA, this is an exceptional piece of baseball history.
