Description



The Simmons Hardware Company got its start in St. Louis in 1874 and produced its "Simmons Swatter" bats in late 1910 and the early 1920s. This particular full-size example just so happens to feature Ted Williams' black-Sharpie "9-10" signature. There is a very nice, bold barrel brand and partially intact decal. The well-preserved handle retains its original luster while the upper barrel bears some cracking and deadwood. Auction LOA from JSA.
