The model 40 was the secondary line of autograph models offered by Louisville Slugger. The T.C. Following the number 40 stands for Ty Cobb. A Hillerich & Bradsby co. Ty Cobb Model 40 store model Baseball Bat from the labeling period 1916 -1929 is worth between $800 - $1,500. in excellent to near/mint condition.

In 1905 Honus Wagner, a star for the Pittsburgh Pirates, signed a contract with Hillerich & Bradsby co. and became the first player ever to endorse a bat. His autograph was also the first to be used on a bat and the first known professional athlete endorsement of a retail product. Ty Cobb signed with the company in 1908.

Below I will leave a link to a Ty Cobb Louisville Slugger Baseball Bat from the 1916-1929 labeling period complete with price guide, and pictures. I will also leave a link to help date your Louisville Slugger Baseball bat.

When was Blastomyces dermatitidis discovered?

Blastomycosis was first reported in 1894 by T. C. Gilchrist,[1] who initially postulated that the disease was caused by a protozoan. In collaboration with Stokes, Gilchrist subsequently isolated the organism, established that the disease was caused by a fungus, and, finally, infected a dog with the newly isolated fungus.[2-4]1..

At what temperatures are Fahrenheit and Celsius the same?

They are equal at -40° (minus 40 degrees)....because if we convert the readings of Celsius and Fahrenheit, we will have:Celsius to Fahrenheit (-40°C x 9/5) +32 = -72 + 32 = -40°FFahrenheit to Celsius (-40°F - 32°) x 5/9 = (-72 )x 5/9 = -40°CAlgebraically (for the numerical value T)The formula for some identical temperature T would beT(°F) = T(°C) and T = (9/5 T + 32) yields 4/5 T = -32 and T = -40(see related question)

How old is your Louisville slugger model 40 TC?

The designation 40 TC (Ty Cobb) was a secondary line of retail store model bats. Because you didn't mention Ty Cobb as the player endorsement I suspect you might have a decal bat, and the decal wore off. Condition of the decal is not the only important with decal bats, it is everything.The decals are fairly common in beat up condition, and without the decal the value will be reduced significantly. The dating of the bat is one of the most important factors on value along with condition. 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.For example: a bat made between 1916 - 1929 will have HILLERERICH & BRADSBY Co in the center label as opposed to J.F. HILLERERICH & SON Co as the bats made before. TRADE MARK REG US PAT OFF appears below the oval and changed to TRADE MARK REG in 1930.
