Description1980 Gold Glove Award from The Gary Carter Collection. In a National League era when Johnny Bench, Tony Peña and Bob Boone were wearing the tools of ignorance, top honors in the sport's most demanding defensive position represented a particularly special achievement. For a three-season span between 1980 and 1982, the hardware signifying defensive dominance in the catcher's position was delivered to Montreal's Hall of Fame backstop, and here we are proud and privileged to present the first of the trio.
It's also the first Carter Gold Glove ever to challenge an auction's bidding audience, and quite possibly the last, establishing this as one of the most significant relics on offer not only within The Gary Carter Collection, but also within this Signature auction at large.
The classic design finds a beaming Carter pictured between the eponymous gold glove/mitt itself and an engraved plaque that reads, "1980 Rawlings Gold Glove Award, Presented to Gary Carter, Honoring His Selection to The Sporting News National League All Star Fielding Team." Golden baseballs stand as sentinels at each side of the center riser. A few tiny hints of storage wear are apparent upon close inspection, but the overall aesthetic is NRMT. Letter of provenance from Sandy Carter.
