Minimum Bid: $100.00
Sold Price: $261.60 (includes buyer's premium)


He was a prolific slugger for a small stature man, but Ott did belt out 511 homers and was the first National League player to hit the 500 home run plateau. This 34 inch, 36.3 ounce signature Professional O16 model bat is made of the highest quality wood, contains quite a few impressive ball stitch marks, several spike marks on the barrel, and moderate dead wood on the back. According to Factory Records, this particular O16 professional model bat was frequently team ordered by the New York Giants during and after Mel Ott's career, however it can not be definitively attributed to have been used by Ott, who managed the Giants for several seasons after his playing career ended. Overall an excellent example of the highest quality store model bat of the first ever National League 500 home run club hitter. FULL LOA FROM PSA/DNA. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
