Pair of Jackie Robinson store-model bats, highlighted by an unusual 1950s Adirondack model. 1) 1951-1957 Adirondack store-model bat. "Robinson Type" is stamped on the barrel, while the bat's length, "35," is stamped on the knob. What sets this bat apart from other store-model Robinson bats from the era is the special stamping on the barrel that reads "Donated by Brooklyn Dodgers." This is one of only a few such examples we have seen. The bat is not cracked and displays heavy use. Vg. 2) Circa late 1950s/early 1960s H&B Jackie Robinson Little League decal bat. The 31-inch bat is not cracked and displays heavy use, with approximately 75% of the decal remaining. Vg. Total: 2 bats. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
