Description

“First in war, first in peace and last in the American League.” Sure, that “title” was derisive (and usually accurate), but the Washington Senators go to bat once more in this lot of (18) game-used weapons! White ash bats hail form the franchise's second incarnation and show nice game use. Includes: B. Chance, F. Coggins, Daniels, Grieve, Hamlin, Hannon, King, Kirkland, R. Kline, Lock, G. Martin, Nen, Ortega, Peterson, Phillips, Reichardt, A. Rodriguez and Saverine. More on our website.

Bob Chance 1965-1966 Game-Used Bat: Hillerich & Bradsby (34.8-oz/36”) “R43” uncracked signature model; shows moderate to heavy use with bat-rack and surface marks throughout, as well as grain swelling/checking about the barrel and a vintage black marker notation of “10” on the knob.

Frank Coggins 1967 Game-Used Bat: Hillerich & Bradsby (32.8-oz/35”) “R43” block-letter (last name only) model; shows moderate use with ball, bat-rack and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout, as well an 11-1/2” H-shaped handle crack and a black marker notation of “15” on the flare knob. The latter identifier suggests use by teammate Bob Saverine.

Bennie Daniels 1965 Game-Used Bat: Hillerich & Bradsby (32.8-oz/35”) “S251” signature model; shows heavy use with ball, bat-rack, stitch and surface marks throughout, as well as grain swelling/checking about the hitting surface, a small H-shaped handle crack and a vintage black marker notation of “21” on the knob.

Tom Grieve 1970 Game-Used Bat: Hillerich & Bradsby (33.2-oz/35”) “W183” signature model; shows heavy use with ball, bat-rack, stitch and surface marks throughout, as well as grain swelling/checking about the hitting surface, a small handle crack and a vintage black marker notation of “4” on the knob.

The latter identifier suggests use by either teammate Mike McCormick (1965-1966) or Bob Priddy (1967) or that Hannan held onto the bat and used it during the 1971 season while with the Detroit Tigers (Hannan wore “19” with the Senators and “16” with Detroit).
