Description

    1964 Grand Award of Sports from The Brooks Robinson Collection. This first annual presentation of the "Grand Award of Sports" was held in conjunction with the 1965 World's Fair in New York City, likely envisioned as a throwback to the 1939 Academy of Sport that was linked to the previous Big Apple edition. Honorees included Sandy Koufax, Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas, Cassius Clay and Wilt Chamberlain, each receiving an attractive sculpture/trophy like the one presented here. This one is engraved with the name of its legendary recipient, who likewise claimed the American League MVP while leading the Junior Circuit with 118 runs batted in. The award measures fourteen inches (14") in height and exhibits only light handling/storage wear. A fine memento of Robinson's finest campaign. Letter of provenance from Brooks Robinson.
