The Dodgers fully proved their mettle by coming back to win the 1981 series after losing the first two games to the Yankees. Presented is a World Series trophy that was used as a salesman's sample to commemorate that championship 1981 Los Angeles Dodgers team. The piece incorporates a 2-5/8"-tall, dark wooden base that is 7-1/4" in diameter. This circularly styled base section is girdled by a 1-1/8"-tall band of nicely machine inscribed gold-colored metal that reads, "WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS - Los Angeles Dodgers - 1981." Atop the base, a 5-1/8"-diameter, gold-colored ring boasts a silver-colored baseball at its base with a gold-colored crown figural at the top (appearing slightly off-center, as manufactured). Positioned at the front of the display are replica press pins representing the respective World Series combatants, and surrounding the base are gold-colored flags that each bear the name of a different major league team, representing all of the 26 franchises from that time. Beginning with Baltimore on the left side and Atlanta on the right, the flags gradually ascend in height from 6-3/16" to 9-7/16". Fresh in appearance, both the base and the award's gold-colored, metallic components display no visible signs of handling.
