In your very useful guide to dating Spalding bats, you say that Spalding Gold Medal bats were issued from 1908-1911 and that Spalding Autograph bats were issued from 1908-25. I take you to mean that Spalding was producing both Gold Medal and Autograph bats for four years. Is that right? If so, what can you tell me about the differences in the qualities of the two lines of bats? I have heard that the Gold Medals are exact duplicates of pro model bats. Are the Autograph models all modified to be different from the pro models? I will be grateful for any guidance.
