Description

Hillerich & Bradsby model M159 was issued for use by Luis Tiant during the 1968 All Star Game. The bat shows no game use, which is expected as Tiant had no at-bats in the game. Barrel reads “ALL STAR GAME * TIANT * 1968 – HOUSTON”.

The bat has been autographed by 17 members of the 1968 All Star team including Luis Tiant, Tony Oliva, Juan Marichal, Harmon Killebrew, Bill Freehan, Joe Azcue, Brooks Robinson, Frank Howard, Boog Powell, George Bell, Don Wert, Denny McLain, Tommy John, Sam McDowell, Willie Horton, Rod Carew, and Davey Johnson.

The knob is stamped with the model number (M159) and Tiant’s #33 is written in black marker. Nothing is written on the barrel end.

Tiant bats are already rare due to his status as a pitcher, but All Star Game Bats are even more rare as typically only two are issued to each player for the game. On the mound, Tiant was exceptional in 1968. He was 21-9 with a career best 1.60 ERA. He had 19 complete games with 9 shut outs and had 264 Ks (also a career high). 1968 was his first All Star appearance and was the first season of four total where he won 20 games or more. He finished his career in 1982 with a W/L record of 229-172.
