Description

Celebrating the purported advent of the "national game" this elusive 1939 Baseball centennial mini-bat is accentuated by a Joe DiMaggio decal. Measuring 17" in length, this piece comes with a removable top that can be fashioned into a whistle when detached. The bat exhibits moderate abrasion and knick markings spanning the body and barrel. The stately "baseball centennial" decal champions Joe DiMaggio. Despite a miniscule crack and minor decal smearing, DiMaggio is portrayed following through amidst a deep red, white, and blue background. A fine specimen which couples the rich history of baseball with the traditions of Americana.
