Louisville Slugger records show that Greenberg bulk ordered G79's throughout 1946 and 1947 although none exactly matching this bat's 34.5 inch and 33.9 oz specs. It is thought that Greenberg, in an effort to speed up his swing either shortened this bat from it's original 35 inch length or special ordered this bat from the Louisville factory, something that would not have been recorded in the company's records. Baseball historians know that Greenberg tinkered with different bat sizes and weights through out his career,

Since you are new, I'll give you a tip. When you come here for advice on a article of Baseball memorabilia, you have a 110% chance that an expert in the field will give you an answer to your question and at times an appraisal on your item.

On your item, you got an opinion by two of the best bat people in the country.
You got the opinion for free.

If you need an appraisal of the bat, I can tell you that if I had the bat, I would have it for sale between $250.00 and $325.00

Without a doubt this is a bat made in the 1960s or 1970s. As was stated previously, the font is that which was used during that time.

Thank You to all who responded, I do appreciate everyone,s input, This bat was sitting on a table at a local garage sale on the 2nd day of the sale, amazing and kind of sad that a baseball icons bat was missed by so many, i love wood bats and old baseball gloves, when I showed my 85 year old Dad the bat his eyes lit up as he said " oh wow Hank Greenberg" it was great, anyway everyone loves a mystery and everyone here has helped, Thank You all, p.s. last 2 weeks have picked up a Brooks Robinson model Rawlings Mitt faded somewhat but has 1968 Detroit Tiger autographs all over it, mickey lolich, denny mclain , mayo smith, larry sherry , John sain etc.etc and the bat, (total spent $5.00)

mickey lolich autograph is by far the best,probably signed a different time than the rest as he has always been accessible in the Detroit area, faded but visible denny mclain, wally moses (coach) john sain (coach) fred gladden , larry sherry, (pitchers) and very faded but i can make out Mayo Smith (manager) the rest are impossible for me to make out

I worked with a guy in the late 80's who did signings with some of the older players (Slaughter, Drysdale, Hunter, etc) and he would order new LS player model bats from the factory for the signings. The only condition was that the player had to write a letter (or maybe sign a form) to allow H&B to manufacture their personal model bats.

That could be the case with this one.
