Early 1900s Louisville Slugger Promotional Mini Bat

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480

Rare Louisville Slugger promotional mini bat (fourteen inches in length) dating from the early 1900s. The bat features a "J. F. Hillerich & Son" center brand, to the right of which is a colorful red-and-gold decal reading "Used By All Professional Leagues." It should be noted the center brand featured on this bat was only used by the company between the years 1897 and 1911, making it an extremely early souvenir piece relating to the historic bat company. Equally impressive is its remarkable state of preservation. The decal remains ninety-nine percent intact and the bat itself remains in Near Mint condition. This is the first such Louisville Slugger promotional mini bat we have ever seen and we cannot imagine a finer example.   Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $480
