This J. F. Hillerich & Son Co. Eddie Collins full-size decal bat, dating from the 1911 to 1916 manufacturing period, features a colorful portrait image of Collins on the barrel. Surrounding Collins' portrait image are his endorsement and advertising for Louisville Slugger bats. His facsimile signature appears below. As is common for nearly all decal bats from this era, large and small, the fragile decal label displays a few minor chips and light abrasions. Overall, approximately ninety percent of the decal remains. The bat (34 inches), which is not cracked, displays moderate wear, including a few small chips and a tiny area of grain separation on the back of the barrel. In Excellent condition overall.
