Description

    1975 Paul Blair Gold Glove Award. One of the top defensive center fielders in the history of the sport, Paul Blair commonly drew comparisons to the greatest of them all--Willie Mays--for his ability to track down long drives over his head that would have been easy doubles in just about any other context. Only seven outfielders in history have earned more Gold Gloves than Blair, and this is the eighth and final example issued to the Baltimore Orioles All-Star, and the seventh consecutive honor (1969-75).

    The design of the award should be instantly recognizable to the cultured baseball fan, the eponymous Gold Glove rising from the center pedestal, framed by twin golden baseballs, the former stamped with the insignia of the "Rawlings" award sponsor. A photographic image of a smiling Blair appears at center, above an engraved plaque on the base that reports, "1975 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Presented to Paul Blair - 8 Time Winner, Honoring His Selection to The Sporting News American League All Star Fielding Team."

    The historic hardware exhibits minor handling and storage wear, but nothing that detracts measurably from the impressive aesthetics.
