    Description

    1988 Los Angeles Dodgers World Championship Trophy Presented to Jesse Orosco. In one of the greatest upsets in World Series history, the underdog Los Angeles Dodgers shocked the Oakland Athletics, and the world, by taking the World Championship in five games. The television replay of a gimping Kirk Gibson pumping his fist as he rounds the bases following his Game One walk-off in 1988 has ensured the Series' eternal notoriety. Here we present the prize presented to veteran reliever Jesse Orosco, who helped sink his former ballclub the New York Mets in the NLCS en route to a Fall Classic defeat of the A's.

    The trophy's aesthetics should be familiar to any baseball fan, with a ring of pennants representing all Major League clubs encircling baseball and crown figurals. The press pins for each club are stationed at the base, which is encircled by a golden engraved ring announcing, "Los Angeles Dodgers, World Championship Trophy, Presented by the Commissioner of Baseball, October 20, 1988, Jesse Orosco." These magnificent trophies are only issued to players and personnel, so unless you've figured out how to hit a curve ball, you'd better bid now if you ever want one for yourself. Twelve inches tall, NRMT-MT condition. Letter of provenance from Jesse Orosco.
