Great story - amazing find - and could not have happened for a better person.

With all of the research and hunting you do, it was just a matter of time before something like this fell in your lap. Hope you find someone to trade for the Baseman Trophy. I would definitely do it if I didn't have one of each. I think the upright Fielder Trophy you found is the second best in the set (just my personal opinion... still like the Catcher best )


Congrats!
Mark

Congrats, Carlton! I've been to the Alameda show twice, while visiting the Bay Area. I wish I could go to them all. I forget if it's weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or whatever. My buddy goes often and usually strikes out but every once in a while hits the jackpot.

Did spalding make two different versions of these outstanding trophies?

He is referring to finish I believe Kevin. Yes they made silver/pewter looking and gold. I don't think I've seen any but the two fielders in gold so not sure if each finish was applied to each position.

Awesome!! Congrats Carlton! I guess the early bird doesn't always find the worm. This time it was the late bird with the eagle eye.
