Presented by the Life Savers candy maker, Havlicek's trophy is a whopping 33 inches high and features a classic sculpture of an Olympic athlete holding the wreath and torch. The 11-inch figural rests atop a 17-inch loving cuo, which in turn sits atop a 7-inch square wood base that is 5 inches high. A 7-by-4-inch metal nameplate proclaims in etched all-caps type: "Life Saver of the Month, February 1973, John Havlicek, Presented by Life Savers." The silver-painted loving cup and the Olympic figural atop it display some of the tarnishing you might expect over four decades, but the entire piece appears to be in essentially as-issued and problem-free condition, save only for a couple of tiny nicks on the wood base all the way at the bottom A bold, black Sharpie Havlicek autograph appears across the center of the loving cup. Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from John Havlicek.
