Vintage Shoeless Joe Jackson Barnstormer Baseball Bat, Black Betsy, Rare
Offered for your consideration is this vintage baseball bat that I believe was made for Shoeless Joe Jackson after he was ousted from Major League Baseball. This was made by the Hillerich & Bradsby Company. It is Model # 125J. It reads JACKSON in block letters on the barrel of the bat.
The stampings are light, but readable. There are many articles on the internet about bats like this.
There is some damage to the knob of the bat (See Pictures). The largest diameter of the bat is 2.250.The diameter of the handle is 1.300. The largest diameter of the knob is 1.965. It weighs 2 lbs and 1.2 oz.
I have not tried to clean this. I will not try to clean or wax it, or attempt any restoration. It is not cracked, but definitely shows wear. The end is stamped with the number 36.This is a chance to own an important piece of Baseball history. This would make a great addition to your rare vintage bat collectibles.
