    I was given a bat from my grandfather. The cork gripped bat has a Kork Grip patented Sep 15, 1914. The center oval has LOUISVILLE SLUGGER, 40 K, J.F. HILLERICH & SON Co, dash dot dash, LOUISVILLE, KY. TRADE MARK, ET Collins (cursive), REG.U.S.PAT.OFF. There is no number on the end of the knob of the handle. I believe it may be from 1915 from the articles that I have read. I would greatly appreciate any help in identifying exactly what I have. Thanks to anyone who can give me any information.

      does the bat say kork grip patented or patent pending?

      Your dating of it is right. Its a good bat. Price depends a lot on length, weight and condition. Its rare nonetheless.
      I have some kork grips pictured on my site.

      Can you send a full length picture of the bat? Any cork left on the bat?
