At first glance, this century-old relic displays beautifully with what appears to be a bright, bold, fully intact decal. Only upon closer scrutiny of the decal does professional restoration become apparent in the form of touch-ups, inpainting and cleaning. The rest of the bat's surface bears the usual bumps, bruises and streaks of childhood use, yet retains a rich, attractive luster to go with its perfectly emblazoned barrel brand for J.F. Hillerich & Son. The handle is wrapped in vintage tape, and an initial "B" is carved into the knob. Collins led the A's "$100,000 Infield" during this period and won the 1914 World Series.
