Goslin bats are among the harder to find of pre war Hall of Famers. Most noted as a key member of the Washington Senators from 1921-30 which included their two World Series appearances in 1924 where they defeated the New York Giants in the 1924 World Series. Goslin hit .344 with three home runs and seven RBI's. In the 1925 series, he hit three homers and another 7 RBI's but they lost this one to the Pirates. Goslin continued as one of the American League’s best batters with averages of .354 and .334 in 1926 and 1927, but his best season came in 1928. That year, he won the American League batting crown with a career-high .379 batting average. This bat dates to all of this baseball history and could have been used by him to achieve any of these events. Given that he sent this bat back to Louisville to have more made, it had to be one of his favorite bats. There is some side writing but it is hard to tell total name (not Goslin) but it is either another player or a shipping agent which is often the case as well. Players would drop off their bats at local stores, etc. that acted as local shipping posts.
