Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle used this Hillerich & Bradsby ash bat during the first 1962 All-Star Game held at D.C. Stadium in Washington, D.C. on July 10, 1962. This was the site of the first of two all-star games played that summer with the second game being played at Wrigley Field on July 30th. The National League defeated the American League 3-1 in Washington, which provided a convenient location to have the first pitch thrown by then President John F. Kennedy. Mantle went 0-1 during the game with a walk and a strikeout in his only two plate appearances. This H & B B220 Mickey Mantle model bat shows light use with green paint streaking to match the RFK Stadium bat rack, and a few ball marks. The PSA/DNA LOA that accompanies this bat, discusses the difficulties in determining the level of use due to the clear coating that has been applied to protect the autographs on the bat. The barrel of the bat has etched “1962 ALL STAR GAME” and “WASHINGTON”. The bat has been signed by Hall of Famers and American League teammates Roger Maris, Yogi Berra, Al Kaline, Brooks Robinson, Rocky Colavito, Ralph Houk, Mickey Vernon, Milt Pappas, Jim Bunning, Luis Aparacio and several others. The autographs, signed in black pen are bold and display nicely. This bat comes with a full LOA from PSA/DNA (1B11138) for its game use, a full LOA from JSA (Y96398) and PSA/DNA (Z05961) for the signatures and a Letter of provenance from the family of Washington Senators equipment manager Fred Baxter.
