mini decal bats
there are a couple mini decal bats on e bay a 39 centennial bat and a 22 inch wagner bat. I think someone has figured out how to create new decals and is placing them on older bats?. I hope I am wrong but I don't think I am. the centennial bat if real is reasonably priced but of the few I have seen with this decal they are all 12 inch bats. the wagner H&B I didn't attempt to date the center brand it just looked wrong. just my opinion.

Here is a 22" decal of Wagner that I recently picked up that I sent a PM about. Also along with a 14" Jackson. These were purchased from an antiques dealer Florida.

Any way being in the printing industry I would say that at least this one is not anything that was manufactured post-1940 due to the florescent inks unless they paid for non-archival inks which would make this cost more to make than they would get back in return (that is unless they did a print run in the tens of thousands to reduce cost). I attached a photo with a black light showing the glow of the newer tissue paper by the decal of the bat.

Any thoughts on these would be great, they are not long for my collection as I don't deal in this side of things often.

Sorry for all the photos.
