eBay: A World Series Trophy

Someone is choking out that ballplayer. He's green from the lack of oxygen. Someone please save him and give him a proper home. This vintage statue can only take so much punishment. It's been hogtied, given a green glow (it looks painted on to me with a spray can), and left for dead. I'm surprised he has a head still.

This is a 1956 World Series trophy that was sold by concessionaires during the series. They are about 6" tall and made of plastic. They are not green, like the example below, but are bronze/copper. You can almost see its natural color at the left foot of the batter. I've seen these sell for a couple of hundred in good shape. This particular model went for $36.00.
