Description1984 Tony Gwynn Silver Bat Award.
For two full decades, the face of the San Diego Padres franchise was superstar outfielder Tony Gwynn, the only man in Major League Baseball's top twenty ranking for lifetime batting average whose career began after the Second World War. Only Ty Cobb has led one of the two leagues more often than Gwynn, and the National League batting title was fittingly named for Mr. Padre just last year.
Presented is the gleaming trophy representing Gwynn's first of eight National League Batting Championships, a duplicate model personally ordered from the Hillerich & Bradsby factory by Gwynn for display purposes. Gwynn batted a scorching .351 this season, adding forty-two points to his previous best while rather predictably leading the Senior Circuit with 213 base knocks.
The bat measures thirty-three and a half inches (33.5") in length and presents without a single aesthetic flaw. It's an extraordinary opportunity to own a silver bat owned by the man for whom the prize is named. Letter of provenance from Gwynn family.
