    Description

    1945 Eddie Mayo Detroit Tigers World Championship Presentational Trophy. Accompanied by a signed and notarized affidavit from his son Eddie, Jr. is this remarkable prize awarded during the most joyous year in Detroit history, one wistfully recalled for both the return home of thousands of soldiers from the battlefields of Europe and Asia and the return to the Motor City of baseball's World Championship. The grateful populace quickly requisitioned elegant trophy cups for each member of the victorious Detroit Tigers ballclub, and here we present that of their hotshot second baseman, engraved artfully on the lid, "To Edward J. Mayo, Member Detroit Tigers, 1945 World Champions from Detroit Baseball Fans." A figural batter stands atop the engraved lid, his bat concluding the important relic's height at thirteen inches. Measured from handle to handle, the width extends to fourteen inches.

    Even the winners of MVP Awards, Cy Youngs, Silver Sluggers and Gold Gloves will swear that there's no thrill like a World Championship trophy, and this 1945 model, earned by a hard-fought seven game Fall Classic victory over the rival Cubs, rates as arguably the most important in Detroit's storied baseball history. With world class aesthetics to match its enormous historical importance, this elegant sterling silver loving cup stands ready to serve as a main focal point of even the finest of private trophy rooms. Letter of provenance from Eddie Mayo, Jr.
