Joe DiMaggio Limited-Edition Signed "1941" Bat
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,292.50
Special limited-edition Joe DiMaggio signature model Hillerich & Bradsby bat signed by Joe DiMaggio ("10") in blue Sharpie. This is one of a series of 1,941 bats signed by DiMaggio, which were marketed in the 1990s. The number of bats in the series (1,941) was, of course, chosen to honor the year of DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak. Each bat was uniquely numbered on the barrel and the offered piece is numbered "965/1941." Very few signed limited-edition bats have been produced and marketed so professionally that they have withstood the test of time as extremely desirable commodities, especially prized for the assurance of authenticity they provide. The Mantle/Maris signed limited-edition of 115 bats and the DiMaggio signed limited-edition of 1,941 bats are two such rare exceptions. In Mint condition. The bat is accompanied by a notarized COA (picturing DiMaggio signing the bat) from Pro Sports Services, the company that oversaw the signing. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,292.50
