Default Need help with Double DDD mini decal bat

Hi all,

Just picked this bat up and was hoping for some insight.

Measures 17.5" and decal is Eddie Colliins.
H&B logo has double dash dot dash with "Baltimore Amateur Baseball Federation Championship Series".

I just can't seem to find any other examples of an H&B bat with series listed instead of the H&B logo. I know they made bats for a lot of events but I just can't seem to find other examples.
I am thinking it was made for the NABF as a souvenir for a Championship Series during the 19teens.
I sent an email to the NABF in hopes they have records of a Series in Baltimore.
Anyone have any idea or info about this Series or bat?
Paid just under $250, deal or no deal?






Thanks for looking and any help
Tony

If I remember correctly it was between $900-$1k, I stopped at $500. Very sharp Ban Johnson ball with reference to the White Roses and Lefty George.

Lol. I'm sure they enjoyed the $125 left bid I left. I thought it was a nice ball, but to me I didn't like how the autos were very faded/light.

I don't think most were autographs, the Lefty George was printed and in the same handwriting as a few others. The ones that appeared to be autographs were as you said "very faded" and illegible.
Also, I was way off, my gf said it went for $780.

I have never seen a dash dot dash mini. 1911-1916 is the DDD time period. I think 1916 - 1915 would be H&S nice find. your bat tells you were its from and you may never see another like it?.

1916 - Baltimore - Waite hoite - Ruth? I am not implying they were there and would it matter if they were. to me yes. others no.

This bat is the single reason I started collecting them.

They are very rare and they display well.

Your bat today is a one of a kind item. and is one of the few that can be traced to were it came from. and when it was made.

In my opinion very nice and very rare.

Find a 1916 Collins card with a rare back that no one has seen before and the bidders will line up.

I don't think they get the credit they deserve.

Bobby
