    Description

    1929 Carl Hubbell "No Hit Game" Presentational Wristwatch from the New York Giants. It was just the eighteenth start of his Hall of Fame career when King Carl held the Pittsburgh Pirates hitless at the Polo Grounds early in the 1929 season, joining, "that lofty gallery in baseball's hall of fame where the mural decorations are restricted to the deep-graven names of no-hit pitchers," to quote William E. Brandt of The New York Times. The Giants presented their young ace this Elgin wristwatch in commemoration of the feat, the verso carefully engraved, "New York, May 8th, 1929, Pittsburg (sic) vs. Giants, Carl Hubbell Pitcher, No Hit Game, C.A. Stoneham, Pres."

    The watch winds and ticks, though we cannot promise accurate timekeeping. The original leather band is broken at the buckle attachment, but all components are present. Total weight is thirty grams (30 g.).
