A Jackie MVP Award

Here is a real Jackie Robinson MVP Award- except it's not the original. Grey Flannel Auctions has up for sale an exact duplicate of Jackie's 1949 MVP Award.
This 1949 Jackie Robinson National League MVP trophy plaque was found hanging in the lobby of Dieges & Clust, the renowned specialist gold and silversmiths who have been producing prestigious trophies, medals, jewelry and awards for the Olympic Games, the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Heisman Trophy, the National Football League, Major League Baseball, etc., since 1898.
With 5 days left it is at $5,500.00. They also have duplicate of Roger Maris's 1961 MVP Award and Roger Clemens 2000 Yankees World Series trophy that he gave to his personal trainer, Brian McNamee.


  1. It's kind of ironic that Jackie won an award named for a Judge Landis, who if still alive, would have kept Robinson out of the major leagues.

  2. That's a great point Wrigley. That has actually never crossed my mind before. Landis is one of the main reasons Baseball was not integrated sooner.
