Whether you think of them as “The Boys of Summer” or “Dem Bums”, the Dodgers got a lot of love out of their love-hate relationship with the citizenry of Brooklyn. Founded as the Brooklyn Grays during the Chester A. Arthur administration, the current LA Dodgers went through several name changes and a whole lot of “wait ‘til next years” during the franchise’s 1883-1957 tenure in Brooklyn. Blue-Blooded fans show some love for this lot of (3) Brooklyn Dodgers related baseball bats, with:
1933 25” Souvenir commemorative labeled “Brooklyn BBC” and dated on the barrel with “Golden Jubilee; May 12, 1883; May 12, 1933”, this vintage 3/4-length bat shows authentic period appeal in approximate (VG) condition, with deference to a small hole drilled through the handle just above the small knob
1959 Zack Wheat HOF Induction brown bat with H&B label and HOF logo (NM+). All graphics and lettering are in gold and also include a facsimile Wheaton autograph and at the end of the barrel “National Baseball Hall of Fame July 20, 1959 Limited Edition 446 of 500”
1990s Duke Snider signed (“7”) commemorative H&B Louisville Slugger (NM+) with deference to color fading at barrel end. A facsimile Snider autograph is also burned into the barrel followed by LE numbering with “407 Lifetime Home Runs; 407 of 407”, auction LOA from JSA.
