The 1920's were a decade that saw guys like Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig dominate the American League's batting leader board. Yet Detroit's Harry Heilmann was able to sneak in and claim no less than four batting crowns for himself. What's more, he won those crowns in a consistent every-other-year pattern: 1921, 1923, 1925 and 1927. Heilmann and Ted Williams were the last two American Leaguers to hit over the .400 mark and when he hung up his spikes in 1932, his career average was frozen at a lofty .342 - number 12 on the all-time list.

This Hillerich & Bradsby Pro Model bat was used by Heilmann during the 1923-25 season in which he collected two batting titles and hit .403 in 1923. The bat shows heavy use with a 10-inch handle crack with some separation. There are many ball marks on the barrel along with cleat imprints. There is some checking present on the barrel from repeated ball contact. The bat comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (1B08104) and a LOA from MEARS (315737) for the game use.
