Best Answer

The bats that have the H&B brand in the oval trademark, rather than Louisville Slugger are harder to date. The H&B brand denotes a lower grade and lower priced retail bat. These bats were produced from the 1020's through the 1970's. The year the bat was made could effect the value.

The number 50 cannot be used to date the bat. Hillerich & Bradsby Co. Louisville Slugger has used different oval center brands in their history. By identifying the center label, trade marks, and patens you can narrow down the year to what era the bat was made.

What is the value of a hillerich and bradsby co king of the field no 13 bat with league regulation engravement on the barrel?

The printing on your bat might be a bit worn and should read "Hillerich & Bradsby" the maker of Louisville Slugger bats. Before 1916 the company went by the name "J.F. Hillerich & Son co." so the bat you have that reads "Hillerich & Bradsby" should be dated between 1916-1920s The "J.F. Hillerich & Son" # 7 bat is dated before 1911. After 1911 they added "co." to the end of the name "J.F. Hillerich & Son" and I know of a King of the field #12 bat that dates to this 1911-1916 era. The bat might have had a decal on the barrel, and the price on a decal bat relies mainly on the condition of the decal. Because you thought the bat reads "Lerich & Bradsby" the bat might be in bad condition, and the decal might be totally worn off. Condition is important and if this is the case it will only sell at about 25% of the $200.-$275. price that the bat might be worth, if it had a full decal. The #12 bat I mentioned above sold for $200. with 70% of the original decal intact. Either way it sounds like you have a nice 1916/1920s era store model bat.
