NOTES:
 
   In 1931 businessman Harry Levey, opened the Wolverine Sporting Goods company at 231 Michigan avenue, Detroit, MI. Levey, previously owned a sporting goods store located on Gratiot avenue for over 20 years, under the same name. A fire starting with three explosions, caused by gas and ammunition stored in the building totally destroyed two buildings, and forced the move. Four years later in 1935, the Wolverine Sporting Goods Co. would be closed for good because of a tragic event.

  On August 1, 1935 a Wolverine store clerk discovered the dead bodies of owner Harry Levey, and Joseph Danneck, manager of a rival sporting goods company on the balcony of the store. The two reportedly had a pistol duel at close range, because of a dispute over Leveys refusal to recommend Dannerek to a bonding company. In his report to the bonding company, Levey accused Danneck of "acquiring too many debts and keeping money."

 It is not known who manufactured the privately branded bat for the Wolverine Sporting Goods Company. The center brand features a "Wolverine" script logo with a tail extending below and across. Below the tail reads 'Sporting Goods Co., Detroit Michigan." Not to be confused with the "Wolverine Sporting Goods Co." of Detroit Michigan, there are a number of companies that carry a Wolverine line of bats that include; the Buhl Sons Co. Hardware Supply of Detroit, Michigan, and the M.H.&T Co. of Saline, Michigan.
