Howard was named the National League's Rookie of the Year in 1960, and went on to twice lead the American League in home runs and total bases and in slugging average, runs batted in and walks once each. His 382 career home runs were the eighth most by a right-handed hitter when he retired; his 237 home runs and 1969 totals of 48 HRs and 340 total bases in a Washington uniform are a record for any of that city's several franchises.
This Louisville Slugger bat was signed in blue by Howard and inscribed, "Hondo," "1960 N.L. R.O.Y." and "1968+70 A.L. HR King." This bat includes a Great Moments COA.
