Description

    2000 Congressional Medal of Honor Patriots Award from The Brooks Robinson Collection. This is the official description of The National Patriots Award, from the website:

    The National Patriots Award is the highest award given by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society. It is presented to a distinguished American who exemplifies the ideals that make this country strong. Recipients of this rare and unique award have demonstrated their dedication to freedom, their love for fellow man, and their allegiance to our flag with a full understanding of its demands. It is the Society's way of recognizing those who have devoted themselves to keeping America strong and a beacon of liberty to people throughout the world.

    In 2000, the Patriot Award was presented to five athletes, each representing all members of his particular sport, in recognition of the important role pro sports has played in the morale of our men and women in the service. The honorees: David Robinson (basketball), Gene Fullmer (boxing), Arnold Palmer (golf), Pat LaFontaine (hockey) and Brooks Robinson (baseball).

    The dazzling medal bears the seal of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society on obverse and engraving on verso assigning the medal to Robinson. It measures three inches (3") in diameter and weighs 262 grams. Mint condition in original velvet-lined wooden display case. Letter of provenance from Brooks Robinson.
