Description

    2001 Arizona Diamondbacks World Championship Trophy, Large Format. It was arguably the most thrilling Fall Classic of its hundred-plus editions, with three of its seven games concluding in dramatic walk-off fashion. Two of those last-ditch heroics belonged to the boys in pinstripes, but it was the D-Backs who accomplished the feat in the winner-take-all Game Seven, earning baseball's most coveted trophy. Here we present a pristine example thereof, ordered (and consigned) by Arizona reliever Troy Brohawn. Included is his appraisal letter from the esteemed jewelers Tiffany & Co. listing an "Estimated Retail Replacement Value" of $44,000. The gleaming symbol of excellence streamlines the format from its earlier incarnations, trading the figural ball, crown and press pins on the base for a raised figural baseball, with the circle of pennants reaching an altitude of nearly eighteen inches at the perimeter. Base is engraved in bold text, "2001 World Series Champions Arizona Diamondbacks."

    It must be stressed that these large format trophies were only available to players and VIP's, and certainly only a small percentage incurred the expense to order one, satisfied with the ring alone. As such, this is the first example of this trophy we've encountered, the ultimate memento of the franchise's sole World Championship realization. Specially constructed heavy-duty wheeled travel case is included. Appraisal paperwork from Tiffany & Co.
