    1912 Boston Red Sox Championship Presentational Flask to Co-Owner James McAleer. Remarkable estate find instantly brings to mind the 1912 World Series Trophy auctioned by Heritage in August 2012 for $239,000, as this too recognizes that Dead Ball Era Championship. The presentee was James Robert McAleer, who shared ownership of the 1912-13 Boston Red Sox with John Taylor. While the identity of the presenter has been lost to history, one might suspect the club's National League neighbors, as the obverse of the flask provides a stunning "Brave" in relief. Verso is artfully engraved, "J.R. McAleer, Champions 1912." The flask exhibits expected tarnishing and a scattered dent here and there, and an old sticker of unknown origin or importance remains affixed to the side. But certainly nothing minimizes the enormous historical appeal of this unique Championship prize dating to the inaugural season of Fenway Park. Height seven inches.
