    Description

    1989 Tony Gwynn Silver Bat Award. This season marked the Hall of Fame San Diego Padre's fourth of eight seasons atop the National League batting average chart, and here we find the impressive trophy presented to Gwynn for his blue ribbon accomplishment. It's the second of two such prizes presented within this auction, each deriving directly from the Gwynn family with their letter of provenance. The design is elegant in its simplicity, essentially just a metallic duplicate of Gwynn's signature model Louisville Slugger, further engraved with the text, "Batting Champion 1989, National League, B.A. .336." Again, we must stress that this is not a Silver Slugger Award, presented to the best batter at each position in the manner of a Gold Glove. Only one of these bats is issued per League annually, and as such it ranks as one of baseball's most prestigious individual awards. With Gwynn's 2007 Hall of Fame induction coming in the months ahead, surely a surge in the value of his collectibles shall coincide. Smart investors take note.
