Description

    1989 Oakland Athletics World Series Championship Trophy Presented to Head Trainer. The victor's prize for a Fall Classic that is immortalized in baseball history as "The Earthquake Series" for the Loma Prieta earthquake that struck just prior to the start of the third game, necessitating a ten-day delay in the contest. This instantly recognizable symbol of the sport's greatest achievement was presented to the man responsible for keeping the Bash Brothers in game-ready condition as they thundered their way to a four-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants.

    The classic design, among the most aesthetically appealing of all Championship hardware in any sport, boasts baseball and crown imagery at the center of a ring of engraved pennants, each bearing the name of the twenty-six teams comprising the 1989 Major Leagues. The tallest flag reaches twelve inches (12") at its peak. Encircling the base is a brass belt with the engraved text, "World Series Champions, Oakland Athletics, 1982, Barry Weinberg." Fine condition. Letter of provenance from Barry Weinberg.
