Among the perquisites that accompany a World Series appearance, these Hillerich & Bradsby commemorative black bats identify the league victors via facsimile signatures or block-letter stampings. Presented perennially to the October-worthy players and team executives, the keepsakes were bestowed in seemingly annual fashion to the New York Yankees following World War II. The offered heirloom hails from the celebration of the 1951 Bronx Bombers version—a squad that captured the third of an unprecedented five successive Fall Classic titles. Together, the 32 names proclaim diamond superiority, with the highlights including Berra, DiMaggio, Mantle, Mize, Rizzuto and Stengel (Mgr). This readily displayable lumber boasts prominent and colorful stampings throughout. With nary a blemish on its smooth, glossy surface, the item remains NM.
