This dark-toned beauty did its share of damage in the years 1929-30, when Wilson was defining the National League with league-leading RBI’s, a single-season home run record (56) that lasted for over 60 years, and a single-season RBI record (191) that still rules today, not to mention the pennant he won with his Cubs in ’29. Hillerich and Bradsby has a heavy barrel and skinny handle just the way that Hack liked them. The ash bat with a standard finish is 35.75" long and weighs 35 oz. On the barrel is "Lewis (Hack) Wilson" in script with "Trade Mark" below. An "H" is carved into the knob and a "J" is carved into the top barrel. The bat shows heavy use and had a cracked handle and chipped knob which have been professionally repaired. There is some checking (grain separation) from repeated ball contact on the back barrel that has been repaired with nails. Many ball marks are visible on the left and back barrel. Also visible on the bat are cleat marks on the right barrel. There is a light coat of pine tar on the handle. The bat has been graded GU 7 by PSA. LOA.
