Baseballs and Store Model Bats   8 Lots      

Lot 272.  Rare Circa 1912 Spalding Frank M. Schulte Store Model Bat. Schulte was a solid outfielder who hit with power for the Chicago Cubs from 1904-15. Traded to Pittsburgh in 1916, he subsequently played for the Phils and Washington. He was MVP of the National League in 1911. Although this bat has been abused, the Spalding name and Schulte’ facsimile signature show through nicely on the barrel. It is cracked with a screw in and tape on the handle, has some smaller pieces missing, and at least two coats of paint have been applied. This project bat is 35” long and weighs about 38 ounces. Scarce bat that, with some TLC, could be a nice addition to a Cubs fan’s collection.
Winning Bid $92.

Lot 273.  Unusual “Derby Ball” Bat from the Edwards Corp. of Waterbury, Vt. This bat would make a good addition to a regional collection. It is 34” long, shows substantial use and the engraved logo is intact except for the right edge.
Winning Bid $102.

Lot 274.  Vintage “Crackerjack” Bat. This 28” post-World War I Crackerjack bat features strong, bold labeling. Collectors had to mail away to obtain these bats, which Hillerich & Bradsby produced.

Winning Bid $25.

Lot 275.  1950s Adirondack Gil Hodges Store Model Bat. This 31” 302JG Little League model has Hodges’ name in script on the barrel and, apparently as manufactured, a material on the handle to improve the batter’s grip. The bat shows substantial use; markings remain readable.
Minimum Bid $20.

The R17 Robinson bat, with “Flame Tempered” in place of “Powerized,” has a cracked handle; a 7”-long section of wood is missing from the back of the barrel. The front of the bat displays extremely well.
Winning Bid $75.
