The proffered pair of Louisville Slugger mini-bat display banks provided a fun and decorative way for youthful fans of 1950s to save money. These handsome American and National League examples each feature (10) 4-1/2 natural wood bats arrayed in a circular rack display. The bats are marked with team names/logos and the familiar H&B Louisville Slugger logo. The rigid plastic banks which stand 5 tall and have a 4 diameter at the base, display the league names at the top where there is a narrow slot for coin deposit. Also included are the original boxes. More on our website.

The National League box is clean and vivid with minor wear including two small tears on the top flap, the American League box is a bit faded and shows overall moderate wear including a detached top flap.
