The first major leaguer to enlist for service in World War I, Hank Gowdy is pictured, along with his facsimile signature, on this J.F. Hillerich & Sons model 40HG full-size bat, measuring 33.75". The decal on the barrel has sharp colors: red, yellow and gold and is 90% intact, minus some scuffing and abrasions. There is black tape on the handle and there is a two-inch chip at the end of the barrel. Warts and all, this is still a wonderful display item with vivid colors.
