Description

    1991 Roberto Clemente "Gold Glove Hall of Fame" Award. Posthumous award confers membership to one of the most exclusive brotherhoods of our National Pastime, an honor bestowed only to those players who had accumulated at least a dozen Gold Gloves during his Major League career. At the time of the November 1991 banquet at New York City's Waldorf-Astoria hotel, the list included only the following: Willie Mays, Jim Kaat, Brooks Robinson, Johnny Bench and Roberto Clemente, whose family took this exceedingly rare relic home that evening.

    The trophy follows the familiar format, with the eponymous gold glove mounted between golden baseballs atop a ziggurat of plaques engraved with the player's face and text which reports, "Presented to Roberto Clemente in Recognition of His 12 consecutive Awards 1961-72, Rawlings Gold Glove Award Hall of Fame." The trophy presents without any flaws of note. Unquestionably one of the rarest and most prestigious baseball awards that exists. Note that Brooks Robinson's award from this event is likewise on offer within this Signature auction.
