Description

    1959 Rocky Colavito "Four Consecutive Home Runs" Presentational Plaque. The monstrous dimensions of Baltimore's Memorial Stadium still could not contain this Bronx-born slugger's power on June 10, 1959, as the Cleveland Indians outfielder smashed homers in four consecutive at-bats in one of the greatest displays of power ever witnessed in the Majors. Here we find his personal memento of the day, a wooden plaque bearing a figural batsman and a brass plaque engraved, "Rocco 'Rocky' Colavito, Third man in the history of baseball to hit four consecutive home runs, Cleveland vs. Baltimore, Date 10 June 1959, Presented with admiration by his boyhood pals, Date 20 June 1959." Plaque measures approximately 9x15" in size with very minor handling wear that does not distract the eye. Handwritten letter of provenance from Colavito himself is included. Letter of provenance from Rocky Colavito.
