NEW YORK YANKEES JERRY COLEMAN SIGNED GAME USED SPRING TRAINING BAT W/INSCRIPTIONS
"1949 ROY" / "1950 WS MVP" / "1949 / 53 - 56 WSC"
RARE FIND WITH ALL THESE INSCRIPTIONS OF YANKEE HISTORY ON ONE BAT
Slugger Powerized Pro Stock Model M110
is a generic game used spring training bat.
bat was NOT used by Jerry Coleman.
Mr. Coleman signed the bat in person for me with a blue sharpie at signing event at the local book store on August 23, 2008 in Clayton California. He was there to sign copies of his book "An America Journey". He included inscriptions of some of his career accomplishments -"1949 ROY" / "1950 WS MVP" / "1949 / 53 - 56 WSC 4 of 5".
Inscribed is "WSC 4 of 5" which I believe depicts his playing in 5 World Series and winning 4 of them. However, I believe this is an error because he actually played in 6, winning 4 of them (as noted by the years he inscribed).
Mr Coleman was also inducted in the baseball Hall of Fame in 2005, winning the Ford Frick Award for broadcasting. He died on January 5, 2014 at the age of 89.
I am happy to say I got to spend some extended time with this great war hero and Yankee legend that evening. He was as much inspiring as he was down to earth. RIP JC.
