Default Al Simmons Pro Bat in Goldin Auctions...

Hi!

I noticed there is a vintage Al Simmons unused pro bat in Goldin's upcoming auction, but I was curious about it since I thought pro bats had 125 in the centerbrand and this bat has the 40 AS which I thought represented an Al Simmons store model bat? It's a beautiful bat, but did pros order those types of bats?

That's 100% a store model. Not sure how taube can call it a professional model. So I guess the Ruth 40 BR I used to own were pro models

Definitely something amiss with that one. The letter picture in the lot listing has the era listed as 1928-30. However, the BONE RUBBED marking near the center label was used in 1931 only.

Will do Ken. Sorry. I didn't think people would be negative about it. I should have known better. I was just trying to make sure with the vintage collectors because it was a nice looking bat!

I agree about there being a big issue with this being a clerical error. Does PSA issue letters of non-authenticity for store model bats? I mean, what would the error have been?
