St. Louis Slugger

Lot 169. St. Louis Slugger Giant Bat and Balls from Food Court

Call over Paul Bunyan, Gulliver, King Kong – and Mark McGwire, for that matter – after acquiring this overgrown bat and two baseballs that were mounted on the wall of the Hot Corner Food Court at Busch Stadium. Bat is 80” long and imprinted “St. Louis Slugger” on the midpoint. It comes with the original mounting clips that attached to the top and the bottom. Balls are actually half-balls that were affixed on two sides of a pillar, each orb with red seams is mounted on a circular silver disk that was mounted directly onto the pillars. Balls measure 15” in circumference and jut out 9” from the silver disks. Both the bat and the balls are in EX condition and recreate some really big memories.

(Estimate $1,000 - $1,500)
