Offerd for sale is an incredibly rare John "Jocko" Conlan game used bat.  This 1923-25 gamer shows outstanding use.  According to the LOA ther eis checking on the barrel from repeated ball contact  on the front of the barrel which has been repaired.  This bat dates to Conlan's minor league career.  I could find only one other example of a Jocko Conlan game used bat which graded a PSA 7 and sold for $3,824 in 2015.  It was described as the only known example at the time with this one since surfacing making it likely one of only two. This bat has been authenticated by PSA and graded a GU 7.5

Conlan was elected to the baseball Hall of Fame in 1974.  He is one of only five umpires elected to the HOF.  Conlan played as a professional baseball player from 1922-35 between the minor and major leaguess. 

This is a tremendously rare bat of a great HOF umpire.  For anyone attempting to complete a run of HOF player bats, this one is likley one of, if not the, most elusive of all members to obtain...........................................................................................................................$2,495
