One of the most intimidating power hitters of his era, McCovey was called "the scariest hitter in baseball" by pitcher Bob Gibson, an assessment with which Reggie Jackson concurred. McCovey's powerful swing generated 521 home runs, 231 of which he hit in Candlestick Park, the most hit there by any player, and included a home run on Sept. 16, 1966 described as the longest ever hit in that stadium. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1986.
This Worth bat was signed in blue by McCovey and inscribed, "HOF 86." This bat includes a JSA sticker and COA.
