Description

Linked as rivals throughout their remarkable playing careers, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams annually vied for MVP and American League championship honors. As the former retired and Williams remained, the torch was passed to switch-hitter Mickey Mantle, and the rivalry played on. With the curtain lowering on the last of the triumvirate’s playing days, all three saw fit to autograph this pro model bat. The Hillerich & Bradsby (33-oz/36”) “D29L” signature model weapon exhibits evidence of light use. Just above the well-defined barrel stampings, Mantle has endorsed the white ash in blue marker (“7” strength). Below those stampings, DiMaggio has signed in black marker (“7-8”), and Williams has signed in blue marker (“7”). According to the third-party authenticators, this is one of very few "authentic" triple-signed bats in the hobby today. Full photo LOAs from both JSA and PSA/DNA (for autographs only).
