    1930 Honus Wagner Trophy Given to Pittsburgh City League Champions Books Shoes with Organization Related Material. Honus Wagner was revered in the city of Pittsburgh and was one of baseball's biggest stars in the Deadball Era. Following his career, Wagner was a part of the Pirates organization until his dying day. This impressive Honus Wagner Trophy trophy (19") was presented to Books Shoe Company in 1930 for winning the first half championship. "Books Shoe Co. B.B. Club 1930 First Half Champions City League" is engraved on the cup's face while the Wagner attribution is visible near the base. The artifact does have some storage wear and is caved in a bit. A number of scrap books have newspaper clippings inside from the late 1920's and 1930's. Glass and acetate negatives, 26 by our count, are also included as are numerous team photos through the years.
