BAT USED FOR GEHRIG’S LAST HOMERS FOR SALE
The bat Lou Gehrig used to hit his last two home runs, in an exhibition game in 1939, is being auctioned off again.
Once owned by actor Kurt Russell’s family, the bat is part of a Yankees Legends offering by Heritage Auctions. The entire collection is from one owner and has mostly New York Yankees- related memorabilia, including a bat used by Roger Maris in 1961. There’s also a glove used by Mickey Mantle in 1965 and signed balls from various Yankees championship teams.
The online auction closes Dec. 10 at 11 p.m. ET.
Gehrig retired after appearing in only eight games in 1939. He had no homers in 28 at-bats.
