Legendary June 2009
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Offered is a die cast mold of the actual Cy Young Award that was presented to Greg Maddux following the 1995 season. The 4 lb., approximately 3/4" x 11" x 12" memento is identical to the official trophy with the exception of the protruding hand-holding-a-baseball and wood plaque. Etched into the award is lettering that reads, "PRESENTED TO GREG MADDUX - THE OUTSTANDING NATIONAL LEAGUE PITCHER - 1995." Some areas of oxidation are present, and it appears as though this item was removed from an original backing.
Please Note: Additional information has been obtained, with respect to this piece. The mold was made and used to make the actual award. Subsequently, it was discarded and never reused. The item was not removed from a backing as speculated, and its mounts served to hold the mold into place while hot metal was poured.
