1951 Ted Williams Game Used Home Run Bat
Splendid offering from the Splendid Splinter was the very one used during the 1951 regular season against the Chicago White Sox, as attested to by Ted Williams himself. Hillerich & Bradsby W166 is accompanied by authenticating LOA's, including a letter from its original owner (a former major leaguer), who states that his father received the bat as a gift from Williams in late 1951, and that at the time, Ted Williams had told him that he had just used the bat at Fenway to hit a winning home run against the White Sox. The bat was then autographed by Ted Williams, Jimmie Foxx, Bobby Doer, and Curt Gowdy (whose signatures have all but completely faded away). This is the bat that hit one of three possible home runs: Ted hit three homers at Fenway vs. the White Sox that season. They were May 15, July 24, and September 17, career home runs # 300, 312 & 323. The bat is 35” in length and weighs 34.5 ounces with very little deadwood on the barrel. In great shape and shows tremendous use - which ball mark was the one that went over the Green Monster? The bat is consistent in every way to the specifications of Williams' bats from the era, a most important homerun bat from arguably the greatest pure hitter of all time.
