Default Peter Rubino busts?

Are these particularly rare or valuable?

Thanks for the help!

Not rare but I think there are two sizes and different finish’s also.. The Ruth brings the most money, then the Gehrig. $750 to $1200, sometimes more, imo

I don't think I've ever seen one actually sell for that amount. I could be wrong, but it seems like whenever they are sold via true auction (not greedy/inflated Buy It Now Price) they go for a mere fraction of typical asking price.

I've seen them sell for $175 - $275 on multiple occasions. But it is true that asking prices frequently range from $750 - $1,200.

I actually did the roof on the manufacturer of those pieces and when I finish the job they gave me the mantle Mattingly Ruth Gehrig all for nothing. I still have them and I also have a bust I haven't seen before of Gehrig which was the original piece that they would used to get the detail down correctly I'll try to post pictures later

Kevin-

LOVE that cream-colored Gehrig Bust. Very attractive, and I like the base far more than the contrived Baseball version. They should’ve stuck with that version, IMHO.

Awesome, if that piece is truly one of a kind!

It is not a Rubino. It says 1994 Cini. I can't find any info on him.
