    1983 Mike Schmidt Silver Slugger Award. The Philadelphia Phillies would celebrate the club's centennial in 1983, opening to a public vote the question of which player was the franchise's all-time greatest. Outpacing the likes of Chuck Klein and Robin Roberts, slugging superstar Mike Schmidt tallied the greatest number of ballots. At the close of the season, punctuated by the second National League pennant during Schmidt's tenure, he would be honored again, earning his fourth of eight consecutive Silver Slugger recognizing Schmidt as the best offensive third baseman in the Senior Circuit.

    Here we find the award in question, presented by leading bat manufacturer Hillerich & Bradsby/ Louisville Slugger. The design pairs a full-sized silver bat with a wooden stand and engraved plaques, celebrating the presenter and recipient of this elite honor. "Hillerich & Bradsby Co. Silver Slugger Award," it announces, "Presented to Mike Schmidt - 3B, Philadelphia, Member of The Sporting News National League Offensive Team." The recipients at other positions are listed below, including notables Andre Dawson, Dale Murphy and Fernando Valenzuela.

    The large and impressive award presents very well, with only light handling wear to note. Please note that due to the size of the award, third party shipping will be required.
