Default Walter Camp Prototype

Great piece Mark...I assume by being a "prototype" it is one of a kind? And thanks for the comments on the prints

Perhaps "prototype" was the wrong word. Although I've never seen another example, I suppose others were likely made. Maybe it was a popular figural piece in its day. Not sure how many (if any) others have survived, but it's got to be a very small number.

The materials, style and construction of the statue are strikingly similar to the Muller Baseball Statues of 1868 (Pitcher and Striker). I do not know the artist, or how this piece was selected to be the subject of the Walter Camp Award. I haven't taken the time to do the research. But regardless, it's pretty amazing that this same figural is still in use to this day.

Only a matter of time until somebody objects to the all white subjects depicted on the trophy and they replace it with something more race ambiguous.

Just kidding (but sadly I wouldn't be shocked)...Great piece Mark.

I have the one of the player in red football sweater with the ball tucked under his arm...talking to the girl under the goalpost. I believe it's titled "the goal". Have it packed away since my last move. Haven't checked it out in a while. Do you have any history on that one?

Thanks Joe, Rob I don't have additional info on that piece. I have seen it cropped and in different publications. Most that I have seen have the title you mentioned.
