Default Babe Ruth Hanna Batrite Bat

I am looking for some info on a bat. It's a Hanna Batrite with Ruth's name on it. I have done a fair share of googling and cant find another like it without the batwing logo. It measures 35 1/2 inches and weighs a lot compared to my other bats.. Interested if anybody can share some info with me?
Thanks for your time.

1930 or younger bat. The TA stands for tempered ash the 5 was Ruth's numbers for Hanna and the 6 was 36" bat

Nice bat

Default Babe Ruth Bat

Thanks i have read that about his model 5 and the length being 36". Also that TA is Tempered Ash and the highest quality for pro players. How do you know the year? And can you tell if it was made for Ruth or was it a store bought model? Any input is much appreciated.

Default Nice looking bat

You should weigh it and let us know the results.

Over at the MEARS Authentication site, they have records of 2 Ruth TA54 bats and 2 Ruth TA55 bats. You should take a look at the bats on that site.

Does the knob appear to be finished, like the barrel of the bat? or is it unfinished? If I understand correctly, an unfinished knob with some rasp marks is what MEARS calls "hand turned."

Why don't you at least tell them the awesome auction where you purchased this bat?

Default Ruth Bat Weight

Had it weighed at the local post office and it came in at 33.2 oz. Sounds about right considering some drying over the years..
Any thoughts??
Thanks
