1916-18 Ty Cobb Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 9. "A ball bat is a wondrous weapon," Cobb once reported, and arguably none in the sport's history have been as proficient in its use. Though Pete Rose famously knocked the Peach from his perch in 1985, it's only fair to report that Charlie Hustle recorded 14,053 at bats compared to Cobb's 11,434. Had the Hall of Fame's first inductee kept his average pace through another 2,600 at bats to match Rose's chances, he'd be the sole member of the 5,000 Hit Club. Cobb remains the career leader with a .366 batting average, a record as safe as any in American sport. So it's little wonder that many consider a Cobb game used bat to be the Holy Grail of the baseball collectibles world, and few could match the presented model in desirability. The Hillerich & Bradsby dash-dot-dash exhibits extraordinary game use from the heart of Cobb's peerless career, a three-year span that saw Cobb average a scalding .378 and claim the American League batting title twice (1917-18). Two key Cobb characteristics are found amidst the ball marks and swollen grain of the barrel, namely a small cluster of cleat marks near the barrel end and dark patches of tobacco spit, each common to several of the top-graded Cobb bats in the PSA/DNA registry. Clearly the lumber served as an enduring companion to the greatest star of the Dead Ball Era before a handle crack, since secured with a little over a foot of spiraled tape, ended its term of service. Length of thirty-four and a half inches (34.5") and weight of forty-one ounces (41 oz.) are both correct for Cobb's factory ordering records, the final determinant in PSA/DNA's lofty rating. The recent sale price of a 1923-24 Cobb bat for $107,550 (Heritage Platinum Night July 2014) serves as unimpeachable evidence of the rising tide of pricing as the few available models settle into permanent collections.
