    1980 Gary Carter Baseball Writers Association Player of the Year Award. In 1980, at twenty-six years of age, Gary Carter was already considered the best catcher in baseball, having taken the baton from Johnny Bench. For the year, The Kid hit twenty-nine home runs and batted in 101 runs, while hitting .264. He was a National League All-Star, Gold Glove recipient, and finished second to Mike Schmidt in the MVP balloting. This ornate, multi-tier trophy was presented to Carter after the season by the "Baseball Writers Association of America, Montreal Chapter" and named "Gary Carter" as the "Player of the Year of the Montreal Expos." Inscription plates are in both English and French. Made of wood, metal and marble, the trophy measures 6x24x6" and is in NRMT condition. Letter of provenance from Sandy Carter.
