Edd Roush H&B signature-model bat (predating model numbers) dating from the 1919-1922 manufacturing period. Graded GU 8 by PSA/DNA. The bat, which is not cracked, displays evidence of excellent use, including several ball marks on the right, left, and back barrel. A light coat of urethane has been applied to the finish of the bat. Edd Roush was known to use one of he heaviest bats in the majors and this example, with a weight of 40.1 ounces is no exception (because of moisture loss it may have even weighed one or two ounces more at the time of its use). One of the most appealing aspects of this bat is its period of manufacture, 1919-1922, which at least affords the possibility that the bat may have been used in the 1919 World Series. The four-year period 1919-1922 was probably the most productive of Roush's career. After winning the National League batting title in 1919 with a mark of .321, he continued to dominate National League pitching by recording averages of .339, .352, and .352, respectively, over the next three seasons. Roush retired after the 1931 season with a .323 lifetime average and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1962. Length: 35 inches. Weight: 40.1 ounces. LOA from John Taube of PSA/DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000.
