With a mere 12 names exclusively contracted to Hillerich & Bradbsy, the Kentucky-based bat plant already had cornered the market on white ash weaponry. This 1924 mailing was a point-of-sale ad display hawking H&B bats. The dual folding ad measures 16x22 in “poster” form, showing a forest from which the bats are produced. On the reverse, an ad featuring Ty Cobb compares the product’s “dependability” with Cobb’s 18 successive .300-plus seasons. Additionally, a catalog listing shows bats and prices.
