Description

    1982 Andre Dawson Gold Glove Award. He earned his nickname "The Hawk" from his uncle at a very young age, attacking sandlot ground balls with the ferocity of a predatory bird as the other kids cautiously shied away. It was a trait that followed the 2010 Cooperstown inductee throughout his Hall of Fame career, earning him eight Gold Glove Awards for his elite outfield play. Here we present just the second Gold Glove earned by the Montreal Expos star, one of just four players in franchise history to be honored with jersey retirement. Dawson posted a .982 fielding percentage this season with 419 put outs (tops for National League outfielders) and eight assists.

    The trophy's design should be familiar to all collectors with an eye for defensive excellence, topped by the eponymous Gold Glove at center, set upon a plinth bearing a photographic image of Dawson in his Montreal cap. Golden baseballs balance the design at either side, while the base announces "1982 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Presented to Andre Dawson Honoring His Selection to The Sporting News National League All-Star Fielding Team." A pair of Rawlings logos frame the text. The trophy exhibits a small degree of handling wear, but nothing that distracts the eye, and the award remains complete and ideal for display.
