1970 Johnny Bench "Player of the Year" Presentational Wristwatch. The Hall of Fame Cincinnati Reds catcher posted one of the finest offensive seasons ever realized by a masked man in 1970, hammering National League-topping figures of forty-five home runs and 148 RBI's while helping to raise the National League flag over the Crosley Field grandstands. Along with his first of two National League MVP Awards, Bench earned for his troubles this Longines watch, engraved upon the verso, "Johnny Bench, 1970 Baseball's Player of the Year." The seventeen-jewel timepiece features a ten karat gold filled case and fourteen karat gold plated band, though clearly its value extends well beyond its jewelry content. Watch shows typical wear, but no damage, and functions perfectly. As a symbol of the ultimate personal single season honor for an iconic Hall of Fame figure, this is a piece that should raise more than a few bidding paddles of Big Red Machine enthusiasts.
