1957-1981 New York Yankees Black Bat Collection (5)

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $928.00

Since the 1920s there has never been a decade in which the New York Yankees have failed to win a pennant. Offered here are five black bats commemorating that long tradition of success. The years represented are 1957 (American League Champions), 1976 (American League Champions), 1977 (World Champions) and 1981 (two bats, both American League Champions). 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. The 1957 bat is technically in Very Good to Excellent condition (although it displays as Ex) while the other four bats grade Near Mint. Each bat measures 35 inches in length. Total: 5 bats. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $928.00
