Hall of Famer Leo Durocher, nicknamed “Lippy”, played as a shortstop in the Major Leagues and was a three-time All-Star. It would be Lippy’s managerial career however, in which he would become most remembered for. As a manager he would win 2,009 games, and would rank 5th in all time managers, second in National League history. Today he is still within the top 10 of career wins by a manager.

Following the New York Giants run to the National League pennant in 1954 and subsequent sweep of the Cleveland Indians in the 1954 World Series, Durocher was presented with this offered William Wrigley Jr. Award for Outstanding Comeback Manager of the Year. This award is on a wood base with a special holder propping up a gold baseball. A tarnished gold plate at the top reads “WILLIAM WRIGLEY, JR. MEMORIAL AWARD OUTSTANDING BASEBALL COMEBACK MANAGER OF THE YEAR 1954 TO LEO E. DUROCHER PRESENTED BY CHICAGO CHAPTER BASEBALL WRITERS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA JANUARY 16, 1955”. This award is good overall condition with edge marks on the wood and some tarnish on the gold items.
