World’s Finest Stan Musial All-Star Game Bat Up For Auction At SCP Auctions

In the midst of the golden age of baseball, the 1955 All-Star Game stood out as one of the most thrilling in the game’s rich history. So it was only appropriate that one of the greatest players and the greatest St. Louis Cardinal – Stan ‘The Man’ Musial – would break a 5-5 tie in the 12th inning with a game-winning home run. Now, the Hillerich & Bradsby bat Musial used to hit the home run is up for bid at SCPAuctions.com and has been given three letters of authenticity by the top game-used bat experts in the field. This isn’t counting Musial’s note on the barrel of the bat, which reads: “My H.R. Bat 1955 All Star Game.” The auction opened to registered bidders on July 8 and concludes July 23. Call (800) 350-2273 for more information on how to participate.

H&B confirms the bat as a Musial Model: 34.5 inches in length, 30.95 ounces. It has branding from the 1955 All-Star Game and even sports a mark denoting where Musial connected for his famous home run.

“This bat certainly ranks as one of the most important game-used all-star pieces in the history of the game,” David Kohler, president of SCP Auctions said. “It’s certainly the best graded Stan Musial bat for collectors.”

A lifetime .331 hitter who smacked 475 home runs and a one-time National League-record 3,630 hits, Musial was named to 24 All-Star Games. He used this bat to hit the fourth of his record six All-Star Game home runs.

Video of Musial’s 1955 All-Star game-winning home run can be found at the following link:

Highly graded game-used bats from Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Ty Cobb and Lefty Grove can also be found in the auction.

Additional St. Louis Cardinals highlights from SCP Auctions are vintage Musial baseball cards, and Bob Gibson’s 1962 road jersey. The world’s oldest baseball card, 1869 Peck & Snyder Cincinnati Red Stockings trade card, T206 Eddie Plank card, 1915 Cracker Jack Joe Jackson card, and 1925-30 high grade Babe Ruth game-used bat can also be found at www.scpauctions.com for bidding.
