    1940 Detroit Tigers A.L. Championship Presentational Silver Tray. Elegant silver tray was the prize presented to members of the Detroit Tigers franchise for the rare accomplishment of unseating the New York Yankees from their traditional position atop the American League. An artfully rendered portrait of team owner Walter Briggs is underscored by engraved text reading "The Detroit Tigers, American League Champions, 1940, Presented By, The Baseball Citizens of Detroit." Facsimile signature of the team roster fill the background. The tray survives in remarkable NRMT condition and measures 15x26", including the ornate handles.
