“Why couldn’t McCovey have hit the ball even two feet higher?” So lamented Charlie Brown in a Peanuts comic strip following the 1962 Fall Classic, which resulted in yet another Bronx Bombers triumph. As Yankee artifacts from that era go, those hailing specifically from any of their seemingly annual World Series appearances hold incredible appeal. This Hillerich & Bradsby bat was issued to backup catcher Johnny Blanchard for that ’62 showdown. The uncracked “R43” (32.8-oz/36”) signature model white ash war club shows no evidence of game use. Blanchard fanned in his only plate appearance (one of a World Series record 10 pinch-hit at-bats). Full photo LOA from John Taube, PSA/DNA.
