This circa 1915 H&B Louisville Slugger 40 T.C. Ty Cobb mini decal bat features a colorful portrait of Cobb on the barrel surrounded by his endorsement and advertising for Louisville Slugger bats. The small decal bats are perhaps even rarer than the full-size versions sold for use, and have always been appreciated for their great displays value. As is common for nearly all decal bats from this era, large and small, the fragile decal label displays a number of small-to-moderate chips/indentations and light abrasions, including one that affects Cobb's face. Overall, approximately 85 to 90 percent of the decal remains and it grades a "5" on a scale of "1" to "10." The bat (14 inches) displays moderate wear, including a few small nicks/indendations on the barrel. In Very Good condition. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
