Default Thanks Guys

Hey thanks all for your kind words and approval...On the way out I showed it to a couple of fellow collectors/dealers. Allan Wegscheider expressed amazment and said it was the best thing he ever saw come out of that show...And right as I was leaving I casually walked by Jim Griffeth's booth right up front near the gate...craddleing it in my arms just to see his reaction...in jest he pulled his jacket over his face as if it was blinding...Later in the day after leaving the show I went to Mark Macrae's house to pick up a baseball drum I got at the National that he drove home for me...Before I could even tell him about my big find he goes..."Are you the one that got the Spalding trophy at Alameda today?"

As a layman, I was wondering, "What's with all the hullabaloo??" I had no idea what this trophy was and found this link, which I will post here for anyone else who might find themselves in the same boat as me…

Here's the full set.... there's also a Pitcher and a Batter. This was a photo that I'd saved. Perhaps someone can chime in with some better close-up shots.

All of mine are silver, as are 95% of these. The gold version that Carlton found is super-rare. I've only seen 2 others in the last decade.
