Default Robert Gould statuettes

Finally got around to making a case for my Robert Gould figures like I made for my Tastee Freez and Big League sets a few years back. (posted here http://www.net54baseball.com/showthr...ighlight=gould) Pretty happy with it, I think, although I am not able to find a couple of figures I was pretty sure I had – lost somewhere in my collection abyss apparently! I was able to pick up a few original contracts signed by a featured player and Robert Gould – I have matted the original Don Newcombe contract with Gould in the center. Made the compartments big enough to hold the cards also, and I have a few I put in, but the price of the cards will probably keep me from ever getting close to a full set of those!

I have also included 3 (or maybe 2) variations of the trophies that were made featuring the Gould figures a few years later, this time in silver. One has the 1959 World Series plaque, the other two do not, although I suppose it is possible someone expertly removed the plaque off of one of them. The other is different in both that it has a black base, and also the name being included on the base (Ray Boone). All of the ones that I have seen in the past with the 1959 World Series plaque have no name on the base but are clearly the same mold as the original player (like the Hank Thompson and (maybe) the Smokey Burgess I have). Anybody have any more information on these small trophies, or additional styles?

I also included in the center two of the original Baby Ruth/Butterfinger order forms that let folks order the figures in sets of 7, for 50 cents and two wrappers. Maybe I should take a shot and send the order form in with two quarters and 2 wrappers! I don’t see an offer expiration date!

Happy collecting!

Very impressive, that really looks great. I have Ashburn but not the card. However I did find a booklet of all the player cards which will have to do. You probably have the booklet too, but if you don’t, let me know and I will try to post some pictures.

I always thought these were kind of neat, but never really appreciated them fully. Your display, with the dark background, allows these to really stand out visually. Extremely well done.

I also enjoyed the link to your Tastee Freeze collection.

Thanks! The booklet is pretty neat. From what I understand, the individual figures were sold rubber banded to a card, and the boxed sets of 7 included the booklet that contained a page for each card. I don't have the booklet yet, but I will grab one eventually I think!
