With convincing aplomb, the Detroit Tigers of 1934 marched to an American League pennant. They had a record of 101-53, the best winning percentage in team history. They also went to the World Series for their fourth time but lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3. Presented is a remnant from their history a team-signed bat from that AL pennant catching season. 21 signatures in steel-tip fountain pen are on the barrel of the Louisville Slugger including HOFers Goose Goslin, Hank Greenberg, Charlie Gehringer & catcher/manager Mickey Cochrane. Key signatures on the wood also include School Boy Rowe, Del Baker, Tommy Bridges, Alvin Crowder, Vic Sorrell, Gee Walker, Marv Owen, Jo-Jo White, Elden Auker, Heinie Schuble, Carl Fischer, Flea Clifton etc.
The best part is that this Louisville Slugger model 125 was game used bat by pitcher Tom Bridges. In 1934, Tommy Bridges was 22-11 with 23 complete games. And in the World Series, he battled against Dizzy Dean in a pitching duel in which he won (although the Tigers lost the Series). This bat is very rare - especially for an AL pitcher. The lumber shows great use and measures 32". Overall the bat includes supporting paperwork from JSA for the autographs (full LOA) and a PSA/DNA bats LOA for the game use.
