WWI Joe Jackson Inscription Bat (33.5

WWI Joe Jackson Inscription Bat (33.5")

A rare Joe Jackson inscription bat in excellent condition. The history behind this special bat is a story unto itself. Hillerich & Bradsby bat making company had a contract with the American YMCA to produce a limited number of these signature YMCA bats to send to American troops in Europe during WWI. An extremely gifted talent, Jackson was one of the game’s outstanding stars. He batted .408 in his rookie season and was a great fielder as well. His career BA is .356 (third highest in history). It has been said that Babe Ruth modeled his batting stance after Jackson’s. Dark brown Hillerich & Bradsby 125 bears the unique YMCA logo emblazoned just below the Louisville Slugger imprint. Very few of these bats were returned to America, as they were usually broken or left in European towns and cities where the Armistice was signed. Barrel bears stamp of Shoeless Joe’s signature with “Trade Mark Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.” Although use is definite, bat remains in excellent condition.
