Description

    1970's Satchel Paige Life-Sized Wax Figure. One displayed at a sports-themed wax museum, the greatest pitcher in Negro League history is replicated with stunning detail and clothed in the uniform of the early 1940's Kansas City Monarchs. Ol' Satch is frozen in the middle of his high leg kick, so those looking for a shotgun rider in the carpool lane may be disappointed, but the collector seeking a truly eye-catching addition to his trophy room definitely will not be. From the eyebrows to the skin texture to the hair on the back of Paige's hands, no effort or expense was spared in creation. And just to emphasize the point--this is a life-sized figure, not a scale model. It's the closest any of us will come to seeing the legendary hurler in action.
