The barrel notation on this very rare Roy Campanella bat, reading “1951 World Series” (crossed out), pinpoints its extraordinary provenance. This bat was manufactured just before the historic final game of the 1951 regular season in which the Giants beat the Dodgers on Bobby Thompson’s dramatic ninth-inning homer, ending the Dodgers’ season and sending the Giants to the World Series. Campanella later used this bat during the spring and early part of the 1952 season.
