Gehrig Bat, ’23 Yankees Hope Plate, Murderers’ Row Photo Highlight SCP Auction

13

After being packed away for decades, one of Lou Gehrig’s final game used bats from the 1938 season and possibly during that year’s Fall classic will be offered at auction in March 2021.

Derived from the personal collection of Earle Combs and freshly graded and authenticated by PSA/DNA who scored the gorgeous Gehrig monument GU 10; this is one of the most important pieces of lumber ever offered from the Iron Horse. Ordered in September of 1938, this is one of the final bats Gehrig used during his illustrious career and may have been used during the ’38 World Series and possibly during Spring Training in 1939. The order date of this specimen points to September 7, 1938, the last month of his New York Yankees career.
