Description

Ted Williams’s reign of terror on American League pitching spanned four decades and along the way he captured a pair of Triple Crowns, secured two MVP Awards and was the last player hit .400. “The Splendid Splinter” wielded the lumber in such a skillful manner that most historians consider him to be the greatest hitter who ever lived. Presented is game-used Ted Williams Hillerich & Bradsby Louisville Slugger model K55 that dates to the 1955 campaign. This 32oz./35-inch turned white ash bat shows extensive game use including a professionally repaired 4” handle crack, numerous ball and cleat marks on all sides of the barrel, stitch impressions and a coat of pine tar on the lower barrel. There are two numbers written on the knob, the first being Williams’ uniform 9, which was written over another number that appears to be the number 10. This historic “thumper” probably clubbed several extra-base hits during the 1955 season in which Williams hit for a .356 average. A bona fide “gamer” from one of the most feared sluggers to ever set foot inside the batter’s box. Graded: Mears A6.5 and Graded: PSA/DNA GU 6
