Vtg Early Louisville Slugger Ty Cobb 40tc Baseball Decal Bat Dash Dot Dash Wood
GREAT EARLY TY COBB 40TC DASH DOT DASH MODEL DECAL BAT. MEASURES APPROX 33 3/4 INCHES LONG. DECAL IS AS IS (SEE PICTURE). WOOD IS REALLY NICE WITH A LIGHT LIFTING TO THE GRAIN ON REVERSE OF BARREL. NOTHING BAD OR UGLY, JUST MENTIONED FOR ACCURACY. TAPE ON THE HANDLE APPEARS TO BE FOR GRIP. I DO NOT SEE ANY CRACKS OR EVIDENCE OF REPAIRS.
TOP OF KNOB HAS NICELY CARVED INITIALS. PLEASE LOOK AT THE PICTURES AS THIS IS EXACTLY THE PIECE YOU WILL BE RECEIVING. The tape is pretty typical for bats that I have handled from that period.
I cannot feel any broken wood , nails, screws indentations, etc underneath the taped portion. I cannot see a beginning to a crack at all, (looking from the barrel toward the handle).The bat sounds solid when tapped on floor. I believe the bat is solid based upon what I see, and will guarantee that it is not cracked. Due to overwhelming questioning about the tape, it has been removed. There are no cracks issues etc underneath. However tape residue remains on the handle. I hope you all can live with the tape removal, it was easier than guessing and guaranteeing. I have added a picture, please see the last one. If anyone has questions or concerns regarding this please let me know. BAT IS STRAIGHT WITH NO WARPING OR BOWING. IF IT APPEARS THAT WAY IN THE PHOTO IT IS AN OPTICAL ILLUSION. The item "VTG EARLY LOUISVILLE SLUGGER TY COBB 40TC BASEBALL DECAL BAT DASH DOT DASH WOOD" is in sale since Sunday, February 26, 2017.
