Description

    2000 Mike Matheny Gold Glove Award. The first of four Gold Glove Awards for the veteran catcher who labored thirteen seasons in the Majors, mainly for the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals. He was enjoying his first season with the latter when he earned the most coveted hardware of the defensive game, and he's pictured wearing a Cardinals cap on the mount that holds a golden catcher's mitt. Golden baseballs stand at attention on either side. The base of the award features "Rawlings" logos at each end and text at center that reads, "2000 Rawlings Gold Glove Award, Presented to Mike Matheny, Honoring His Selection As "The Finest in the Field!" The award is missing one of the pegs that holds the glove in place, and one of the baseball holders has a broken arm, but neither of these issues is particularly apparent, as our catalog imagery should indicate, and only the latter is visible at all. Gold Glove Awards are rare and highly coveted in the collecting world, and this catcher's model is a cool and even rarer variation.
