Description

    1958-70 Luis Aparicio "Career" Gold Glove Award. The 1956 American League Rookie of the Year remains the greatest Major League talent ever to emerge from the nation of Venezuela, a slick fielding shortstop who claimed the defensive game's top honor nine times during his Hall of Fame career. The presented hardware recognizes that remarkable accomplishment, listing each season on the trophy's base beneath a portrait of the smiling middle infielder and the text "Rawlings Gold Glove Award, Presented to Luis Aparicio, 9 Time Recipient." In every other regard, the piece is identical to the individual season awards in Little Louie's trophy room. Typically "career" trophies such as this were presented during retirement ceremonies for those players earning four or more Gold Gloves, so this is considerably more rare than the single season models. The trophy remains in fine, undamaged condition, perfect for display.
