Default Large clear glass Babe Ruth figure

A local dealer I know, had this solid glass babe ruth figure at the national. I haven't ever seen one like it and he hadn't found anyone else at the national who had either. I figure the best brains in memorabilia are on here ..... so anybody know what this is?

I'm guessing it is a modern acrylic or molded glass piece
Always buying baseball trophies, figural pieces, glassware, as well as Cubs and Tigers pinbacks and pennants.

I haven't seen one before. It would be easy to tell if it's acrylic or glass by the 'ting' and weight. Also, glass is colder than plastic. if it's molded, it would have a seem.

I looked at this piece at the National. It is glass and very heavy. I didn't notice a stem also no wear, scratches, etc. It looks new. Dealer was looking for confirmation on a big price.

Just looking at the picture, to me, it looks like the Babe Ruth top has been glued to a base.
