Hall of Famer Don Drysdale was one of the premier pitchers in the game during the 1960's, winning the Cy Young Award in 1962 and being selected to the National League All Star team eight times. Drysdale was also known a good hitter; not just "a good hitter for a pitcher," but one who was actually appeared for the Dodgers as a pinch hitter on more than one occasion. This Louisville Slugger model D145was used by Don Drysdale during the 1965 baseball season in which he won 23 games and, along with left-handed counterpart Sandy Koufax, helped propel the Dodgers to a World Series championship. The bat measures 36" in length and weighs 38.4 oz. Drysdale's number "53", now retired by the Dodgers, is written on the knob in faded marker. Best of all, the bat has been signed by Drysdale and inscribed, "To Rick - My Best Wishes Don Drysdale." The signatures grades a strong 8.5 Sadly, Drysdale died of a heart attack in 1993 at the age of only 56. This will quite likely be the last Drysdale bat you will see on the market; it has been in a private collection for many years and we have not seen another one available in the recent past. A beautiful item from an iconic player, this bat will make a noteworthy addition to any collection. Comes with JSA LOA.
