Chuck Klein was a powerful hitter who captured four home-run championships, two RBI titles and the Triple Crown, all with the Phillies. He finished his career with a .320 average and an even 300 homers. Along with his batting prowess, Klein was also a superb defensive right fielder who still holds the modern single-season mark with 44 assists in 1930. After the 1932 season, Klein was named the National League MVP. In 1936, he became the first National League player in the 20th century to slug four home runs in a game.
This rare Chuck Klein Louisville Slugger 125 professional model baseball bat dates from the 1937-40 labeling period. The 35 inch, 35.8 ounce bat demonstrates extensive use including ball marks, stitching impressions, cleat marks, and repairs to a slight handle crack and knob chip. Possessing superb display quality, this is a fine example of a difficult to find pre-war HOF gamer. Includes a LOA from John Taube of PSA/DNA (Graded GU8).
