1952 Topps #227 Joe Garagiola - PSA NM-MT 8

Among more than 450 copies recorded in PSA’s census reporting, just eight examples have been graded higher.
1940 Play Ball #225 "Shoeless Joe" Jackson - SGC 70 EX+ 5.5

Thurman Munson 1979 H&B Game Used Bat - PSA 5
Thurmon Munson used this 35", 30-oz. H&B bat during the 1979 season. The signature model, "S44" model lumber is uncracked, shows checking at the back and front barrels, and bears a small chip at the knob. Ball marks are present about the barrel, and blue racks marks can be seen at the back barrel location. Cleat marks are evident at the right, back, and left barrels, and a light coat of pine tar adorns the handle. Consequently, what appears to read "BP" is visible in fading marker at the knob, which indicates that Munson employed this bat for batting practice.
