Red Schoendienst Adirondack model 52A game-used bat dates from 1951to 1957. These were Schoendienst's most productive years as a player, topping the .300 mark four times in seven years, including batting .342 in 1953. The bat is uncracked and displays excellent game use. The barrel shows evidence of ball marks and red/black bat rack marks. Second baseman Red Schoendienst was one of the Cardinals' all-time greats.

As manager, he led the Cardinals to the 1967 World Championship and the 1968 NL pennant. This is a very scarce game-used bat from the height of Schoendienst's career as a player. Length: 35 inches. Weight: 33.8 ounces. SCD Authentic Grade: A10. LOAs from Dave Bushing & Dan Knoll/SCD Authentic and John Taube & Vince Malta/PSA DNA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,875.00
