When it comes to Hack Wilson game-used bats, they are not only very unique in design but also very scarce. Using an ultra-thin handle for the era, the barrel-chested Wilson was able to generate great bat speed. The thin handle extends upward from a small but protruding knob, unlike a flare handle and certainly more dramatic than a Hornsby-style knob, which became popular in the 1920s and 1930s. Due to the unique character of his bats and of Wilson himself, his bats are often in high demand. A 1932 example sold for $21,300 in 2002.
