BAT USED BY RUTH TO HIT 59th HR SELLS FOR $717,000 – BUT WHAT WOULD BAT USED TO HIT HIS 60TH SELL FOR? The only thing more exciting than a Babe Ruth game used homerun bat is a Babe Ruth game used bat that comes with a provenance explaining exactly how the bat went from Ruth’s hands to the auction block almost 100 years later! And if there’s anything more exciting than that, it’s provenance from the Bambino himself! The bat Ruth used to hit his (then record) 59th homerun of the season on September 26, 1921,  was auctioned by Heritage this

1924 Walter Johnson HOF & Muddy Ruel Vintage Washington Senators Baseball Photo If you followed baseball in the mid-1920's, you knew all about Walter Johnson and his Washington Senators’ battery-mate, Herold “Muddy” Ruel.  Behind the Big Train, the Senators won back-to-back pennants in 1924 and ’25 with the durable Ruel catching 149 games in ’24 and 127 more in ’25.  Their success is at least in part attributed to the arrival of the defensive-minded Ruel in 1923.  Johnson was simply the
