Just about everyone who see this Trophy likes it even those who are not into baseball. Produce from 1920 to 1930 for the Spalding Company by the Dieges & Clust (D&C). It is a heavy sliver plate and has very fine detail in it casting. I used it a still life photo which I call "Memories of Home." It was awarded to a Malcome L. DeWeese who played form the late 1920's to 1941. He was a catcher with the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1935 season. He also played 10 years in AAA ball with the "Acme Brews" (a farm team of the Pirates) until the start of WWII. I found it being used as a door stop because of its weight. It does not do that job anymore. It has a Art Deco look to it.
