PLEASE NOTE THE MINIMUM WAS MISPRINTED IN THE CATLAOGUE. THE CORRECT MB IS $750. IN ADDITION, THE TITLE NOW CORRECTLY READS 1985 WORLD SERIES HERO AWARD.
This 19-inch high trophy was awarded to Bret Saberhagen as the Kansas City Royals World Series Hero for his incredible performance for the World Champion Royals. A 13-inch high loving cup with a silver-painted figural of a pitcher rests on a small wooden base with a nameplate that reads "Bret Saberhagen" in all caps. This in turn rests on a larger wooden base of 8 1/2 inches square, with silver eagle figurals on each corner. An 8-by-2 1/2-inch silver nameplate notes: 1985 World Series Hero, Fifteenth Annual Kansas City Baseball Awards Dinner, January 25, 1986." Saberhagen has signed the back panel of the bottom wood base in bold, black Sharpie. Most elements of the award are in virtually Near-Mint condition, save only for the bottom portion of the loving cup (and the handles), which reveal rather pronounced tarnishing.
Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Bret Saberhagen.
Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
