    Description

    1927 Spalding Figural Batting Trophy. Blurring the line between sports collectible and fine sculpture is this dazzling specimen from the popular and highly prized line of figural trophies issued by the celebrated "Spalding" sporting goods company in the 1920's and early 1930's. Painstaking restoration has returned this Golden Age treasure to its gleaming original condition, and while not even an expert could spot the modern improvements, dedication to full disclosure compels us to report that the bat and plaque on the repainted base are flawlessly reproduced. All else is 100% vintage to original issue, with the end result a striking work of art that is marvelously evocative of this special time in our National Pastime. The weighty artifact stands an impressive twenty inches in height, and quite honestly rates as the most visually pristine specimen from the Spalding set that we've ever encountered. A truly elegant piece for the dignified hobbyist.
