IN BRIEF

A truly historic, one-of-a-kind offering featuring the bat used by MLB Hall of Famer and trailblazer Frank Robinson when he slugged his 500th home run - becoming just the 11th player in history to do so. Robinson’s place in the pantheon of greats is secure; he was not only dynamic on the field but he also became the first African American to manage in the big leagues. Signed and inscribed by Robinson, the bat was graded and authenticated by PSA/DNA who assigned it a GU 10 - museum quality.

THE ATHLETE

Frank Robinson was an American professional baseball outfielder who played for five teams, from 1956 to 1976. He is the only player to be named Most Valuable Player (MVP) of both the National League (NL) and the American League (AL). In addition, he won the Triple Crown in 1966 and is a 2x World Series Champion. A 14-time All-Star, Robinson batted .300 nine times, hit 30 home runs 11 times, and led his league in slugging four times and in runs scored three times. His 586 career home runs ranked fourth in major league history at the time of his retirement, and he ranked sixth in total bases (5,373) and extra-base hits (1,186), eighth in games played (2,808), and ninth in runs scored (1,829). Robinson’s 2,943 career hits are the most since 1934 by any player who fell short of the 3,000-hit mark. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1982.

THE OFFERING

This baseball bat was used by Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Frank Robinson when he hit his 500th career home run on September 13th, 1971.
The bat was authenticated and graded by PSA/DNA, sports collectibles leading grading agency. The bat was given a GU 10, considered museum quality.
Robinson’s number “20” (written by Robinson the day of the homer) along with the bat’s weight “35” is handwritten in black marker on the knob. Records at Louisville Slugger date this bat to a single order placed on August 31, 1971 - just weeks before his historic clout. The photographer Tom Donahue kept the bat in his possession for many years and in 1990 he was reunited with Robinson at an event where the two men autographed copies of Donahue’s photographs of the 500th home run. Donahue had Robinson sign the bat again, this time in a stronger black marker with the additional notation “Homerun #500 9/13/71”. At the time Robinson mistakenly wrote “8/13/71” but managed to turn the 8 into a 9 before handing it back to Donahue.
The bat was manufactured by Hilelrich & Bradsby model R161M. The bat is uncracked and shows evidence of excellent use. Several ball marks and ball stitch impressions are visible on the left barrel.
Robinson became just the 11th player in baseball history to join the 500-home run club.

In 1975, Robinson was named the Cleveland Indians player-manager --- becoming the first African American to manage a big league club.** **
