Description

    1979 Sixto Lezcano Gold Glove Award. The Puerto Rican-born outfielder placed fifteenth in American League MVP voting for the 1979 season, unquestionably the best of his twelve years in the Bigs, and likewise earned his only Gold Glove as one of the three best outfielders in the Junior Circuit. Here we present that award, featuring the eponymous gold glove atop a pedestal bearing a photographic image of the Milwaukee Brewers star. Twin golden baseballs frame the pedestal, with the base bearing an engraved plaque below that announces, "1979 Rawlings Gold Glove Award, Presented to Sixto Lezcano, Honoring His Selection to The Sporting News American League All Star Fielding Team." The trophy measures approximately 17x17x7" and exhibits minor handling wear with no significant visual distraction. A fine example of the sport's most coveted defensive award. Letter of provenance from Sixto Lezcano.
