eBay: 1956 World Series Souvenir Trophy

This just goes to show you how much condition can make a difference.

Below is an eBay auction item I ran into recently.  It is a 1956 World Series souvenir trophy sold in stadium concession stands.  It measures approx 6" to 6 1/2" high and features a nameplate celebrating the Dodgers and Yankees in the Fall Classic.  This memorabilia item is scarce and rarely seen; especially in this condition.

Well, as you may recall, I had highlighted a very similar item earlier this year (See that post here), and as you can see they are very different.  The item I wrote about in January was in exceptionally poor condition.  It had turned green from years of mishandling.  Of course, it wasn't so bad that the collector community shunned it.  In fact, that poorly conditioned souvenir trophy sold for $36.00. 

What did this near mint condition trophy sell for?  It closed 3 days ago at $201.50.  That's quite a jump in value.
