In 1960, Major League Baseball played two All Star Games, one in Kansas City and one in the Bronx. This was the second of four straight seasons in which baseball played two Midsummer Classics. Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, and Bill Skowron suited up for the American League in Kansas City, and pitcher Whitey Ford joined the Junior Circuit squad for the game in the Bronx.        Presented is one of two signature model Hillerich & Bradsby B211 bats manufactured for the great Yogi Berra for the two All Star Games in 1960. As a three-time American League MVP, ten-time World Series Champion and first-ballot Hall of Famer, high-end offerings of Yogi Berra’s game used gear will always garner significant interest. The experts at PSA/DNA characterize that use as "excellent," referencing ball marks, stitch impressions, and light pine tar on the uncracked handle. A vintage number "8" appears in marker on the knob. It was common practice for All-Stars to continue to use their bats as the regular season reconvened after the break, and the LOA suggests it is likely Berra added this one to his pennant-winning arsenal.

The bat measures thirty-five inches (35") in length and weighs in at thirty-four and a half ounces (34.5 oz.), and a 10/10 black sharpie signature from Berra joins his imprinted facsimile on the barrel. This is one of four Berra 10's in the PSA/DNA bat population. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 10. Full Grading LOA from Beckett Authentication Services, Auto 10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
