    1981 Gary Carter Silver Slugger Award from The Gary Carter Collection. Early format is just the second season of the Award's existence, and the first of five claimed by the Hall of Fame catcher. A player strike shed the Major League schedule of nearly forty percent of its games in 1981, but Carter was brilliant during that abridged service, driving in sixty-eight runs in 100 appearances to lead the Expos onslaught.

    A full-sized silver bat is mounted on a wooden stand bearing a Louisville Slugger logo and engraved plaque naming Carter as a "Member of The Sporting News National League Offensive Team, 1981." Other winners that season included Pete Rose, Mike Schmidt, Andre Dawson and George Foster. Slight handling wear, but still presents beautifully. Letter of provenance from Sandy Carter.

    I thought that Peter Calderon was very pleasant and had a very professional attitude.
