The Philadelphia Phillies franchise has lost over 10,000 games in its 126 year history. However, the club did rise to seize the 1950 NL pennant and the 1980 World Series. Two heroes from each of those teams have been immortalized on this trophy bat. In 1950, Robin Roberts won 21 games, started 39, completed 21 and pitched five shutouts. That same year, Richie Ashburn led the NL in triples (14) and batted .303. For the 1980 squad, Mike Schmidt led the NL, hitting 48 HR, with 121 RBI and a .286 BA. He won both the NL MVP and World Series MVP awards. Steve Carlton went 24–9, led the NL in innings pitched (304) and strikeouts (286) and had an ERA of 2.86. He won his third of four Cy Young Awards. All four Phillies are members of the MLB Hall of Fame. This pristine, ash, 34-inch, Louisville Slugger bat is engraved in brown with the names and numbers of four legendary Philadelphia Phillies: Richie Ashburn, Robin Roberts, Mike Schmidt, and Steve Carlton. “PHILLIES RETIRED NUMBERS” is engraved in brown on the barrel’s prime grain. The label is black embossed “180 Louisville Slugger Louisville, Kentucky Made in U.S.A.” Schmidt boldly signed “Mike Schmidt 20” in vivid blue Sharpie above his engraved name and number. Carlton signed his name and “32. Roberts signed his name and “36”; and Ashburn signed his name and “#1.” All signatures grade 10. A COA from PSA/DNA (#T06690) accompanies this item.
