Imagine turning back the clock and being present when the immortal Babe Ruth cocked his bat, swung and connected on another majestic long ball towards the furthest confines of any ballpark. While this miraculous dream can never become a reality, Memory Lane Auction house is now offering the next best thing…an opportunity to hold a game used Babe Ruth bat used during his 1929/1930 seasons! One of the finest “Sultan of Swat” gamers, this R34 White Hickory model bat carries irrefutable provenance, coming directly from Bob Whitehill (grandson of ex-big league southpaw Earl Whitehill who won 217 games in his distinguished career). A good friend of Ruth’s, the “Babe” gave Earl Whitehill the bat in 1931, remaining in his family until 2002. This monstrous piece of lumber weighs approximately 37.4 ounces, measures nearly 35 inches in length, and includes the critical Bambino home run notches in several areas. An absolutely breathtaking piece of baseball history, it effectively transcends time to an era when Ruth dominated our National Pastime at an unparalleled level. We highly encourage you to stop by the show and emulate the “Babe” himself by holding this incredible heirloom!
