Given the name “Gas House Gang” because of the rough and tumble, heads-up ball that muddied their uniforms, the St. Louis Cardinals of the 1930s were one of the most colorful teams of all-time. Key to the team’s success was their first baseman, Jimmy Collins. Nicknamed “Ripper” for the line drives that screamed off his bat, Collins led the National League in home runs in 1934, helping the Cardinals win the pennant and then tore the ball up in the World Series, batting .367 to take the World Championship over the Tigers. Ripper used this bat during that 1934 Championship season and the one following it, during which he hit .313 with 23 home runs. The Hillerich & Bradsby pro model bat displays outstanding use with a handle crack. There is some wood loss from repeated ball contact and two gouges are found on the right barrel. There are several stains present on the bat’s surface and abrasions and scuffs from contact with the ground and other equipment. A very rare gamer from one of the Gas House Gang sluggers dating to their famous World Championship season. This bat comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (1B17131) for the game use.
