Still mired in the throes of a decades-old “curse,” the Boston Red Sox tried in vain for baseball supremacy throughout the 1970s. These (3) bats were wielded by Carmines players during a decade in which the BoSox were one of only two teams (along with the Orioles) to not endure a losing season. Includes:
Danny Cater 1973-1975 Game-Used Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby “M142” (34”, 32.6-oz) signature model bat from the first baseman’s days at Fenway Park. The white ash weapon features a flare knob and shows heavy use with ball, stitch and surface marks, as well as grain swelling on the hitting surface and a handle crack of close to eight inches.
Tommy Harper 1973-1975 Game-Used Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby “B267” (36”, 34-oz) block-letter (last name only) model brandished by the fleet-footed outfielder. Heavy use is evident with ball and stitch impressions about the barrel, as well as grain swelling on the hitting surface, two handle cracks and a black marker notation of “4” on the knob.
Terry Hughes 1973-1975 Game-Used Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby “M110” (35”, 34.5-oz) signature model bat with moderate use attributes that include ball, bat-rack and stitch impressions about the barrel, as well as pine-tar residue and a 5-1/2” crack on the upper portion of the handle. On the knob, “38” is written in black marker.
