Description

Presented is a replica of the 1980 World Series Championship trophy captured by the Philadelphia Phillies, the ONLY championship the team has ever won. The beginning of each season brings new hope for the Philadelphia fan with the knowledge that the team has a historical chance of less than one percent to win the Series. This championship trophy (measuring approximately 12" in height and 7" in diameter) was issued in 1990 for the tenth reunion of the Phillies 1980 World Series victory and features 26 gold-colored pennants (each bearing the team name of a major league franchise and ascending in height from 6-1/8" to 9-3/8") positioned around the perimeter of a circular black wooden base. The interior metal design consists of a silver baseball, set within a gold band, atop of which rests a crown. Displayed directly in front of this arrangement are the 1980 World Series press pins for the Phillies and Kansas City Royals. The gold-colored band affixed around the base reads, "Phillies 10th Reunion 1980 World Series Champs" in black lettering along with facsimile signatures of the players. The bottom on the wooden base has the Balfour sticker present, and the overall condition of the piece is high grade with minor scratches and toning present on the brass. The trophy comes with a letter stating that Steve Carlton once owned this very trophy and the letter is signed by Carlton.
