Default Baseball Trophy - UPDATE To clean or not to clean

Recently picked up this baseball trophy, measures 15 inches tall, and have two questions.....

To clean or not to clean? And if to clean any suggestions about how to go about it?

I used some silver polish on a smaller area on base as you can see in the second photo and it cleaned up nicely.

Very nice trophy, Mike. I would clean it, and I have Carbona Precious Metal Wipes to be quite effective.

clean it, but understand it's missing a fair bit of its silver, so don't expect it to look new all over. Its a great trophy by the way.

Thanks guys! It seems that the concensus is to clean this thing up. And yes Mike the missing silver has me a bit concerned as to what the final product will look like.
