Ruth made his Major League debut in July 1914. The bat with a Spalding logo coming as lot 80001 is from his rookie period. With 37.5 oz only, this lightweight bat precedes the bespoke equipment made for Ruth by Hillerich and Bradsby throughout his later career. It is graded PSA/DNA GU9 with a heavy game use that may match Ruth's 1915 season with the Boston Red Sox.
The 40.2 oz bat at lot 80002 is from a model produced by Hillerich and Bradsby from 1918 to 1920 which is Ruth's transition period from the Sox to the Yankees. It is autographed by Ruth to a collector on the barrel and inscribed 1920 by him. This perfect Game Used bat graded PSA/DNA GU 10 and MEARS A10 displays many hits of balls grouped on a very small surface demonstrating the highly skilled gesture of Babe Ruth.
The Hillerich and Bradsby bat at lot 80021 matches with one of the very last home runs recorded by the champion with the Yankees, in 1934. It is signed by Ruth, Gehrig and most of the team. It also has a perfect grade but only with a light to moderate use.
