Smile nellie fox bats

I need some help on the characteristics of Nellie fox bats. I know he ordered wide grain, with knots, standard finish, and sometimes a single ring of tape. Any other information? Thanks

Default Re: nellie fox bats

Hi Terry...

As researched by PSA/DNA : "Nellie Fox bats can often be found with tremendous game use. Why? Fox never struck out more than 18 times in a season. He was the ultimate contact hitter and did not crack a lot of bats due to his hitting style; therefore, some of the Fox bats that have survived look like they have been through a war. On the handle of his bats, Fox would occasionally place a lone ringlet of tape a few inches up from the base of the handle. It is considerably one of the more unique taping methods. "

In addition to the above info, note that during his 19-year career, Fox only ordered 3 different H & B models: Model C12 in lengths of 33", 34" (most characteristic) , 34.5", and 35"; Model G69 in length of 34" and specific to 1961: and Model S91 in lengths of 33" specific to 1949 and 34 inch in 1949, 1950, and 1951. The total number of bats he ordered during his career was approximately 994.
