Terms & Conditions We advise all bidders to read the Terms and Conditions of the Sale before bidding with Dan Morphy Auctions LLC and/or its affiliates Morphy Firearms LLC, and Morphy Auctions, Las Vegas collectively referred to below as MORPHY’S. Those who bid are bound by those Terms and Conditions of the Sale, as amended by any oral announcement or posted notices, which together form the contract of the sale between the successful bidder (purchaser), MORPHY’S and the seller (consignor) of the lot.

TERMS OF SALE

When bidding on any lot offered by MORPHY’S, the bidder indicates acceptance of the following Terms of Sale. Any participation in the auction binds you to agreement of these terms whether or not you read or understand said terms.

CONDITION OF ITEMS

MORPHY’S makes every effort to accurately describe all items offered in its sales, however all items for sale are “as is,” and it is the bidder’s responsibility (present or absentee bidders) to determine the exact condition of each item. MORPHY’S will not be held responsible for typographical errors. Neither we nor the consignor, make any guarantees, warranties, or representation, expressed or implied, in regard to the property or the correctness of the catalog or other description of the authenticity of authorship, physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, provenance, exhibition, literature or historic relevance of the property or otherwise. No statement anywhere whether oral or written, shall be deemed such a guarantee, warranty or representation. Prospective bidders should inspect the property before bidding to determine its condition, size and whether or not it has been restored. It is the bidder’s responsibility to initiate contact with Morphy’s in request for additional information regarding the items. Submit all questions regarding upcoming auction items at least 48 hours prior to the date of auction. We will make every effort to answer all submitted questions in a timely manner. However, we cannot guarantee that questions submitted within 48 hours of the auction date will be answered prior to the auction. The consigner and we make no representation or warranty as to whether the purchaser acquires any reproduction rights in the property. Returns will not be accepted under any circumstances. All items will be available for preview approximately one (1) month prior to the auction. All items are sold for display purpose. If electrical, mechanical, or other working parts are inoperable, even if working at the time of sale, we are not liable due to the inherent nature of the age of these antiques and items. Submit all questions regarding upcoming auction items at least 48 hours prior to the date of auction. We will make every effort to answer all submitted questions in a timely manner. However, we cannot guarantee that questions submitted within 48 hours of the auction date will be answered prior to the auction. AUTOMOBILES – These terms do NOT apply to our automobile auctions. To view the terms and conditions for our Automobile Auctions, please go to: www.morphyauctions.com/autoterms FIREARMS – These terms do NOT apply to our firearms auctions.

GAMING DEVICES - MORPHY’S may hold these items for up to 5 business days to allow state agencies to verify the purchaser’s information. All auction participants are urged to check the legality of possession in and/or shipment of gaming devices to their state of residence. Ownership of gaming devices is prohibited in these states: Alabama, Connecticut, Hawaii, Nebraska, South Carolina, and Tennessee. If you become a high bidder on a gaming item, and you are from one of the prohibited states as listed here: • You must pay for your item, • You will not be able to take possession of the item (MORPHY’S cannot ship it to you or allow pickup), • MORPHY’S will consign the item in your name to the next appropriate auction. If you do not pay for the item in full, MORPHY’S will block you from participating in future auctions. Any gaming device purchased at the auction shall be used for the purpose of display or social entertainment within the private home or residence of the buyer, and such devices shall not, in any event or manner, be exposed to the public for the purpose of gambling or be resold in the state of Nevada without a gaming distribution license. Proof of residence/ID is required for purchase of gaming devices. FIREWORKS – MORPHY’S can only ship Class 1 Division 1.4 and 1.6 Explosives (as described in the following website: http:// environmentalchemistry.com/yogi/hazmat/placards/class1.html) per the 49CFR 173.50 and can only ship these via FedEx. All items not shippable must be picked up by the buyer. SPORTS COLLECTIBLES • Return Considerations o MORPHY’s is not responsible for a third party grading company agreeing or disagreeing with our assessment, and we cannot issue refunds or credits if cards do not receive a numerical grade or the exact grade that we describe. MORPHY’s strongly recommends that you personally evaluate any items that you are bidding on, and make your own determination about its grade. MORPHY’S offers no guarantee of grade for uncertified items sold and subsequently submitted to a third-party grading service. o Cards sold referencing a third-party grading service are sold “as is” without any express or implied warranty. Certain warranties may be available from the grading services, and the Bidder is referred to them for further details: Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), Sportscard Guaranty LLC (SGC), Global Authentics LLC, Beckett Grading Services (BGS), JO Sports, Inc. o MORPHY’S will not accept return of certified items due to possible differences of opinion with respect to the grade offered by any third-party organization, dealer, or service. Grading does not qualify for return evaluation, nor do such complaints constitute a basis to challenge the authenticity of a lot. o MORPHY’s shall not be liable for any patent or latent defect or controversy pertaining to or arising from any encapsulated collectible. In any such instance, purchaser’s remedy, if any, shall be solely against the service certifying the collectible. o Under extremely limited circumstances related solely to authenticity, such as a highly significant cataloging error, a purchaser, who did not bid from the floor, may request MORPHY’S to evaluate voiding a sale. (continued...)


bidder

Terms & Conditions o Lots returned must be completely intact in their original form and undamaged holder, or there will be no credit. Certifications are void and returns are not accepted for any cards removed from their third-party grading holder. o All elements of the MORPHY’S POST-SALE RETURN POLICY apply. There are absolutely no exceptions to this policy. • On any lot presented with a Letter of Authenticity (“LOA”) issued by MORPHY’S o The bidder shall solely rely upon the warranties of the authentication provider issuing the Letter or opinion, or on the warranties of the authentication provider of the bidder’s choice. o Warranty inures only to the original purchaser. Purchaser may not transfer the rights afforded under the LOA, and it is null and void when Purchaser transfers or attempts to transfer the lot. o The LOA warranty is valid from date of the auction in which Purchaser was awarded the lot to four (4) years after its purchase. o The LOA warranty is valid as to its attribution to the person or entity described or to the lot’s usage, e.g. game worn. o Claim procedure: o Purchaser must contact MORPHY’S within the warranty period, prior to submission of the lot as to his intent to make a claim, receive prior approval, and arrange secure shipment. o Purchaser must present with the claim, authoritative written evidence that the lot is not authentic as determined by a known expert in the sports field. o If MORPHY’S concurs that the lot is not as represented, Purchaser shall be refunded their purchase price. o If the MORPHY’s denies the claim, the Purchaser agrees to the AGREEMENT REGARDING GOVERNING LAW, VENUE, AND LEGAL RIGHTS noted herein. o The LOA does not provide for incidental or consequential damages or other indirect damages. Any lot sold with a certificate of authenticity or other warranty from an entity other than Auctioneer or Morphy’s affiliates is subject to such issuing entity’s rules and such conditions are the sole remedy afforded to purchaser. • In the event MORPHY’s cannot deliver the lot, or subsequently it is established that the lot lacks title, provenance, or authenticity, MORPHY’s liability shall be limited to voiding of the sale and refund of purchase price. In no case shall MORPHY’s liability exceed the winning bid on that lot, which bid shall be deemed for all purposes the value of the lot. After one year has elapsed, MORPHY’S maximum liability shall be limited to any buyer’s premium earned on that lot. • Due to changing grading standards over time, differing interpretations, and to possible mishandling of items by subsequent owners, MORPHY’S reserves the right to grade items differently than shown on certificates from any grading service that accompany the items. MORPHY’S also reserves the right to grade items differently than the grades shown in the prior catalog should such items be reconsigned to any future auction. • There is a subjectivity to grading, especially the grading of cards. Every effort is made to verify the condition of each lot as it is described. MORPHY’S accepts items for auction after careful scrutiny by not only ourselves, but, when necessary, by other leading authenticators. We cannot guarantee that every card described by us will in all cases receive exactly the same grade, or even be accepted for grading, from any third-party grading service. Similarly, we cannot guarantee that every card graded by one third-party grading service will in all cases receive exactly the same grade by another third-party grading service. Occasionally a lot description will include the words “we have submitted,” which is intended to be taken literally and give bidders great confidence that MORPHY’S has not “done anything” to the cards to alter or otherwise improve their appearance and

ultimate grade. No warranty, whether expressed or implied, is made with respect to any grade, condition, or other adjectival descriptions, which can and do vary, even among experts. • Large Autograph Group Disclaimer: When dealing with a single individual auction lot containing many items, these lots are offered with the explicit understanding that it is possible that there may be a small percentage which are not authentic. When authenticating large lots, such as a collection of 6,000+ signed 3 x 5 cards, or a set of 700+ signed baseball cards, great care has been taken in the authentication process, with all the greater attention focused on any items representing a concentration of value. It is always possible that on rare occasions a secretarial or stamped signature could be missed here or there. Without this disclaimer, as a practical matter, it would not be possible for MORPY’S to offer such lots at all. All bidders bidding on such lots do so with this understanding. • Abbreviation/Definition/Condition Key: PR — Poor, GD — Good, VG — Very Good, EX — Excellent, NM — Near Mint, MT — Mint. NOTE: If an item has a multiple grade such as VG-EX, then that item falls somewhere in between those two conditions. GOODS MADE FROM OR CONTAINING MATERIALS FROM PROTECTED SPECIES - MORPHY’S does not accept any responsibility or liability for the sale of items containing materials from protected species or for any omission in marking or labeling goods as containing materials from protected species. Such material includes, but is not limited to, ivory from elephants and walruses, tortoise shell, crocodile skin, whalebone, rhinoceros horn, some species of coral and certain woods. Restrictions on the importation, exportation, sale, transfer, and/or possession of goods containing materials from protected species derive from international, federal, and state laws and regulations promulgated thereunder. Laws include, but are not limited to, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna (CITES), the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the Marine Mammals Protection Act (MMPA). States currently restricting trade of protected species include, but are not limited to, California, New York and New Jersey. Prospective purchasers are on notice that several countries completely prohibit importation of property made, all or in part, of protected materials. Some countries require special permits, such as a CITES permit, from the relevant regulating authority in the countries of exportation and importation as well. Potential purchasers intending to import the property into another country should be familiar with the relevant customs laws and regulations prior to bidding on goods containing material from protected species. Regulations may vary as the U.S. generally prohibits importation of articles containing material(s) from species it has designated endangered or threatened if the articles are less than 100 years old, subject to certain exceptions. It shall be the potential purchaser’s sole responsibility to research and satisfy the requirements of any laws and regulations that apply to the import and export of property as described in the aforementioned paragraphs. All purchasers agree to comply with any and all domestic and international restrictions on the trade of protected species as a condition of the sale. Please note that the ability to obtain an export license or certificate does not ensure the ability to obtain an import license or certificate in another country, and vice versa. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to obtain any export or import licenses and/or certificates as well as any other required documentation. MORPHY’S is not able to assist the purchaser in attempting to obtain the appropriate licenses and/or certificates, and there is no assurance (continued...)


bidder

Terms & Conditions that an export license or certificate can be obtained. The inability or delay in obtaining permits, licenses or other permissions to import or export goods containing material from protected species will not constitute a basis for rescission or cancellation of the sale of said goods or the delay in payment of purchased items in accordance with these Bidder Terms and Conditions. JEWELRY AND WATCHES • Jewelry Descriptions and Condition Reports: Lots being offered are sold as-is on the day of sale. Condition reports, either written or verbal, are provided as a courtesy only, and are not to be taken as fact or guarantees of condition or quality of the lots. All information provided is the opinion of the specialist at MORPHY’S, including but not limited to weights, grades, color, and clarity. All gemstones and diamonds are measured and graded in their setting unless stated otherwise. All weights and grades are approximate. Buyers wishing to have a grading or gemological report from an independent, internationally recognized laboratory, such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or the American Gemological Laboratories (AGL), may request one at their own expense or hire an independent adviser of their choosing. • Watch Descriptions and Condition Reports: The physical characteristics, timing accuracy or functionality of timepieces cannot be guaranteed, and all items are sold as-is. o Any condition statement reflects the condition of the watch on the date of the report. Condition can change from the time of the report to the day of sale. o Photographs are for identification purposes only. Buyers may not use them as precise indications of size or condition. o The origin or authenticity of all components cannot be guaranteed. o Watches with waterproof or water-resistant cases – Morphy’s may open cases to develop descriptions, and cannot guarantee that any watch is waterproof or water-resistant at the time of purchase. Morphy’s recommends that the buyer have a professional watchmaker evaluate the watch at buyer’s expense. o Buyers must be aware that watches may need general service, change of battery, or further repair work for which the buyer is solely responsible. o Dials - All watches have the possibility that after their original date of manufacture they received reconditioning or replacement of dials or elements of the dial such as but not limited to standard or luminescent hour markers, hands, script, date or measurement indices, lacquer, and finish. Buyer is solely responsible for determining and understanding such condition issues. • The lack of a condition report does not imply that the item or lot is free from imperfections, defects or wear and tear of the aging process. This includes but is not limited to: deficient stones, needed repair or defects. • It is common and generally accepted in the jewelry industry that some diamonds and most gemstones have been enhanced with various treatments to improve their overall appearance. o These treatments include but are not limited to: heating, dying, oiling, laser drilling, HTHP, wax, bleaching, irradiation, resin or polymer impregnation and various other techniques. o Unless stated in the title, it is assumed that one or more treatments have been performed to the stones. While many treatments are considered permanent, this cannot be guaranteed. o Please note that many treatments cannot be determined without sophisticated laboratory testing. Due to the various laboratories and developing scientific methods for testing, not all reports or certificates will have the same results for treatment type, extent of treatment and stability of treatment.

o MORPHY’S makes no representations or warranties, express or implied, as to whether natural stones have been treated or enhanced, whether specifically referenced or not. • Laboratory reports may accompany some lots o If a lot is accompanied by certificates or reports from internationally recognized and accepted gemological laboratories, it will be noted in the description. o Copies will be available upon request, with the original going to the successful bidder. o The reports cannot be guaranteed and are provided for informational purposes only. Results on reports may differ from laboratory to laboratory. o MORPHY’S accepts no responsibility for the accuracy, terms or information contained in such certificates or reports. Grading Scale: Near Mint Plus 97% - 100% Near Mint 90% - 96% Excellent 80% - 89% Very Good 70% - 79% Good Below 70%

BIDDING RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES

The auctioneer will determine the highest bidder. The auctioneer alone has the right to reopen the bidding of an item if deemed necessary due to a dispute. If there is a tie bid between the floor and Internet or absentee bid, the floor bid takes precedence. MORPHY’S and its representatives reserve the right to remove those attendees who impede preview and/or the auction. Title to all merchandise shall pass to the highest bidder at the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer. The buyer will then assume all risk and full responsibility of the lot purchased once ownership has changed. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. MORPHY’S is not responsible for any errors in bids, omissions of bids, or failure to execute bids and shall have no liability to any bidder for any technical or other failure associated with the internet, absentee bidding, or telephone bidding. • ABSENTEE BIDDING - MORPHY’S will accept absentee bids if pre-authorized by mail, fax or through www.morphyauctions. com online. Absentee bidders must use the absentee bid form and clearly mark the lot number, title and maximum bid amount. Absentee bidding forms may be accessed online at www. morphyauctions.com. If there are two (2) identical bids placed on the same item, priority will be given to the first bid received. All bids must be left in increments as explained on our bid form. If a bid is “out of increment,” the auctioneer has the right to round the bid up to the next correct increment. Bidders may preview, register and place bids online through our website, www. morphyauctions.com. Absentee and online bids placed through www.morphyauctions.com will be auto charged to the credit card entered 48 hours after the end of the sale. If you wish to pay by another method please contact us within 48 hours after the sale. Seller(s) agree to allow the Auctioneer to accept and execute absentee bids in a competitive manner for potential buyers and under the Morphy Auctions absentee bidding terms and conditions. During the live sale, the auctioneer will execute your absentee bid competitively up to the maximum amount you have indicated. • ONLINE BIDDING - Online bidding through www.morphyauctions. com, Live Auctioneers, Invaluable, Proxibid, or other bidding platforms may be available; all Terms and Conditions still apply. A surcharge will be added for third party online platforms. Refer to your bidding platform of choice for the final buyer’s premium. (continued...)


bidder

Terms & Conditions If there is a tie bid between the internet bidding venues and the floor, the floor bid takes precedence. If a credit card has been provided to one of the online bidding platforms, MORPHY’S reserves the right to use and charge the credit card if the winning bidder has not paid via another method by the 7 day term in Payment Terms below. Due to our fast paced auctions and bids coming from floor bidders, phone bidders, internet bidders and absentee bids, the auctioneer has the final word on all item(s) sold. You (the bidder) assume the risk of winning an item online and not having the item actually sell to you. This is due to the final call of the auctioneer and the operator not being able to re-open that lot. Online bidders are responsible for accidental bidding as if they bid normally. • BID RESULTS – MORPHY’S will only contact successful bidders. Please allow 24-48 hours post auction to receive your official invoice from Morphy Auctions. The invoice will include item, hammer price, premium, packing and handling, shipping, insurance, and any other charges that apply. Please hold phone inquiries regarding bid success until after receiving your invoice. For verifications, MORPHY’S cannot provide winning bid information until the second business day after the auction. MORPHY’S will not provide bidder information to any outside sources. • TELEPHONE BIDDING - Requests for phone lines must be received at least three (3) days prior to the auction date. MORPHY’S cannot guarantee phone lines but will make every attempt to accommodate those who wish to participate through that method. Phone lines are provided on a first come first served basis. Please visit www.morphyauctions.com or call 717-335-3435 to request a call from our representatives during the live auction.

BUYER’S PREMIUM

A 23% buyer’s premium will be added to all successful bids and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase cost.

SALES TAX

Lots delivered to you, or your representative are subject to all applicable state and local taxes, unless appropriate permits are on file with MORPHY’S. Bidder agrees to pay MORPHY’S the actual amount of tax due in the event that sales tax is not properly collected due to: 1) an expired, inaccurate, or inappropriate tax certificate or declaration, 2) an incorrect interpretation of the applicable statute, 3) or any other reason. The appropriate form or certificate must be on file at and verified by MORPHY’S five days prior to Auction, or tax must be paid; only if such form or certificate is received by MORPHY’S within 4 days after the Auction can a refund of tax paid be made. Lots from different auctions may not be aggregated for sales tax purposes.

PAYMENT

Watch auction purchases and any invoice totaling more than $100,000 must be paid within three (3) days. All other merchandise must be paid in full within seven (7) days of the date of the sale. If payment by cash, check, money order or wire transfer is made within 7 days of the sale, a 3% discount on the Hammer price may be taken by the buyer.

Terms & Conditions In the few situations where a successful bidder does not remit payment when due, MORPHY’S will proceed with the legal steps necessary to protect its interests and will block the bidder from future auction participation.

PACKING/SHIPPING

• It is the bidder’s responsibility to take shipping and handlings & insurance costs into consideration when bidding on items. • BIDDERS PRESENT AND TAKING ITEMS AFTER AUCTION – Since item liability transfers upon a successful bid, items paid for must be packed, transported and/or removed by the purchaser at his/ her own risk after the close of the sale. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. If any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the purchaser. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • ITEMS NOT PICKED UP THE DAY OF THE SALE – Packaging, shipping, and insurance on items will be made available as an added courtesy and cost. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. Again, if any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the purchaser. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. All applicable charges will be applied. Shipping will be based on actual costs via FedEx, FedEx Freight, or USPS (best way). Handling and insurance will vary in cost depending on each invoice. All packages will be shipped with insurance. Items will ship seven to fourteen (7-14) business days after payment is received. • SHIPPING TERMS - Morphy will ship all items to the buyer at the listed address via FedEx or other carriers, FOB Denver, Pennsylvania or FOB Las Vegas, NV or FOB other auction locations. Any risk of loss or damage to the item(s) during transit via FedEx, or any other carrier, in excess of the insurance provided by or purchased from Morphy, is at the risk of the buyer. Any additional insurance coverage should be purchased by the buyer through the carrier. Buyer releases Morphy from any and all claims for loss or damage to any item during transit and agrees to pay all costs of defense, including attorney’s fees, for any claims brought against Morphy for loss or damage occurring during transit. • INSURANCE – Shipping insurance is automatically added up to $1,000 for every package. If your package is valued at >$10,000 we will also automatically add “Additional Insurance”, which you can decline by contacting us.

FEATURING THE

BOXING COLLECTION

The following items originate from the Gary Traugh Boxing Collection. This exceptional accumulation of artifacts focus mainly on the the early years of Cassius Clay and his rise to international fame. Included are many historic items including early fight worn equipment, an incredible document regarding changing his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali, and the Gold Nugget presented to Ali in Zaire. According to Gary Traugh “It has been one of the most exciting experiences of my life discovering items from the early life and career of Muhammad Ali. Much of Ali’s life is undocumented prior to 1960; as such, it is safe to say this is the largest and most historic collection of young Cassius Clay memorabilia ever offered for sale. It’s both exciting and bitter sweet, as searching for and collecting these items has been a large part of my life, but the world deserves to see and know these items still exist.”

This shot of Ruth’s final appearance at Yankee Stadium ranks among the most famous sports photos in history. Photographed on June 13, 1948 by Nat Fein, it captures Ruth in his iconic #3 for the last time. The moving image won the Pulitzer Prize and is one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential images of all time. Image printed in the 1950’s has almost a 3-D effect with perfect focus on Babe Ruth. You can certainly tell that Fein really put effort into making this copy particularly nice. The image is signed in the lower left “To John Curry, Best Wishes Nat Fein”. The signature of Nat Fein itself is signed twice, like the first time it didn’t take very well. The image itself is beautiful with some foxing in the upper left corner in the margin and a very minor crease in the left corner margin to be accurate. Oversized image measures 11” x 14”. One would be hard pressed to find a nicer period copy. PSA/DNA letter deems the image a Type II with a note “Photo is a later issued 1950’s example that was made off the “original” negative by Fein of the Pulitzer prize shot that he took in 1948 for the New York Herald tribune. 4,000.00 - 6,000.00

127 - 1925-1926 GEORGE “BABE” RUTH PROFESSIONAL MODEL GAME USED BAT. Manufacturer: Hillericht & Bradsby Co. Model No.: R2. Labeling Period: 1925-1926. Length: 35” Weight: 39.5 oz. Wood: Ash. Finish: Standard. LOA: PSA. This Babe Ruth game used bat was used by the Bambino during the 1925 and 1926 seasons. While 1925 was not a momentous year, 1926 was an exceptional season for the Babe, who batted 47 home runs for a .372 overall batting average; losing the World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals. The PSA letter confirms the following information: This bat is either his No. 2 6-21-24 order of March 5th, 1925 or his No. 1 small model lightweight ordered on March 8th 1926. It is standard pre-war style sans model number on knob and the reference to model is based on the Louisville Slugger records. The ;26 records show two orders for bats weighting 36-39 oz. Player characteristics: the subject displays contact areas on right, left and back of barrel. In their opinion, the amount of grain swelling on left barrel indicates it was the primary contact area, which was a known trait of Babe Ruth game used bats, as he was known to approach the plate from the left side with the center label in the downward position. Comments: This bat has a branding flaw in the “125”, common during this era, which leaves a light impression. This 125 is all original as manufactured and there was no attempt to change a 40 into a 125. Conclusion: It is our opinion that the bat is authentic as described. This style of Babe Ruth bat, with its long slender profile and heavy weight are amongst the most desirable of all Babe Ruth styles and given the amount of use along with the flattened hitting area above the player name, this is pronounced to the point that a baseball will sit on this flat spot, makes them amongst the most sought after baseball relics. The complete PSA research letter will be included. 35,000.00 - 50,000.00

129 - 1963 BALTIMORE ORIOLES COMPLETE UNIFORM. Perfect example of a 1963 Baltimore Orioles home uniform. The family had always thought this was Robin Roberts uniform as he wore 36 for most of his career. Unfortunately it is not as he wore #38 as a Baltimore Oriole. The uniform number has no record of being issued so I would classify it as extra. It is tagged correctly in the tail although the chain stitch swatch is loose at the bottom. Pants are also Wilson but the inside chain stitch is mostly gone. There is a pair of black leggings also present. Perfect for display EX-MT and clean. (Excellent-Near Mint). 800.00 - 1,500.00 130 - GAME USED BASEBALL FROM THE FIRST NO-HITTER IN MILWAUKEE BRAVES HISTORY. While the Braves resided in Milwaukee, there were four no hitters thrown with the first being by Jim Wilson in 1954. Wilson, who earlier in his career had has skull fractured by a Hank Greenberg line drive, stepped on the mound June 12 1954 and pitched a no-hitter. Offered is a ball from that game signed by Jim Wilson with many notations regarding the game and the broadcast. Warren Giles’ ball is toned from game use and is correct for the era. (Excellent). 600.00 - 1,200.00 131 - TED WILLIAMS PROFESSIONAL MODEL BASEBALL BAT. 34 - 3/4” Length: 34 - 3/4”. Weight: 33.2 lbs. Model: 01. Era: 1950-1960. Center Brand: C-15A. Powerized: C-15A/P9 straight orientation. Ted Williams, arguably one of the great ball players of all time and a National war hero, played professional baseball for the Boston Red Sox from April 20th, 1939 to September 28th, 1960. Ted Williams first ordered this model in 1940, measuring 35” with weights from 32 to 36 ounces and using them through 1946. Another personal order was sent in 1955. During the 1950’s Hillerich & Bradsby Company began ordering 35” and 36” Ted Williams Model 01 to be sent directly to the ball club. This eliminated the need for Ted Williams to place any personal orders for this model as they were already in stock and obviously used by him through that era. By supplying the team with the commonly ordered bats of the team’s superstar, it required that Ted Williams only place personal orders for bats other than the 01 Model. This game-used Ted Williams bat exhibits light overall game use with a 4” closed handle crack. There is some green markings on knob. All factory stamps are perfect with beautiful finish. A great piece of lumber dating to the 1950-60 era of a national baseball icon. 1,200.00 - 1,800.00

132 - 1960 MICKEY MANTLE GAME USED H&B BAT. According to the shipping records, Mickey Mantle ordered six of these bats on April 1st, 1960 in anticipation for the opening game of the 1960 season at Boston on April 19th. It would take about that long for the bats to be produced and shipped so as to arrive in New York by the opening day train trip to Boston. The Yankees beat the Red Sox that day 8-4 with Mantle going 2 for 3. Mantle was an All Star in 1960 as well as runner up for the MVP to Roger Maris but it is the unforgettablef 1960 World Series that remains in most fans minds when reflecting on the 1960 season. Mantle has a sensational series in which he played in all seven games. He had a total of 25 at bats and drove in eight runs with his 10 hits and three home runs during that series while batting .400 average. This Mantle bat shows signs of heavy game use with marks on all sides of the bat. The factory stamps are strong. Use on all sides and matching shipping records are about the only traits to be found on a Mantle gamer as very few documented game bats have been observed with a magic marker number â&#x20AC;&#x153;7â&#x20AC;? on the knob. The PSA letter details the measurements and bat dating to match the original Louisville Slugger shipping records. A great game used Mickey Mantle bat dating to one of the most deflating Yankee seasons in the memories of great Yankee history. LOA from PSA DNA 15,000.00 - 25,000.00
