Amazingly, this intricate 3 Man Statue portion is still in use today (see photo of Ricky Williams holding his Walter Camp Award). This is a completely finished piece, and the earliest known version of the prestigious sculpture. See pics below, with the latter versions being about 125 years older than Williams' Trophy!


That's an EPIC find.. Congrats!!

Very cool pickup, Mark! Congrats on adding this amazing piece to your collection.

Thanks Michael, Joe, Mike, Scott and Albert. Appreciate the kind words.

Joe- thanks for the additional info. Late 1880s time frame makes lots of sense. Appreciate your rationale and insight :D

A little pen holder for your desk. Circa 1958 and given away(?) by Sun Valley Dairy of SF. There is also a Cepeda that, from what I've heard, is much harder to find.

That's sweet, Rob! A really nice addition to your SF Giants collection.

Congrats Rob! That Mays figural is one tough piece. Saw one about 8 years ago and was underbidder. Yours is much nicer, and the only one I've seen since then.

Great pickup!

Not baseball, but a super cool 70s era hockey goaltender's mask...unknown origin but tracking down provenance thru some sources...possible minor league use.

Haha! I know...it's a bit unsettling.
