Any conversation about the greatest third baseman of all-time would have to start and end with Philadelphia Phillies legendary Hall of Famer Michael Jack Schmidt. Regarded as the National League’s premier power hitter from the early-1970s to the late-1980s, “Schmitty” owned his era, leading the league in home runs eight times in 13 years from 1974-1986 while hitting 35 or more 10 times, including a career-high 48 in 1980. While Schmidt has been predominantly recognized for his prowess at the plate he was a well-rounded all-around player and superb fielder winning 10 Rawlings National League Gold Glove Awards at third base. The centerpiece of 18-items procured from Schmidt’s own personal collection and offered here, this 1984 Rawlings Gold Glove Award was “Presented to Mike Schmidt honoring his selection to the Sporting News National League All-Star Fielding Team.” This is the actual award given to Mike Schmidt, it is not a replica and no duplicates were ever authorized by Schmidt. The ninth consecutive Gold Glove awarded to Schmidt, this glimmering and iconic 17” x 16” trophy displays a gold-painted Rawlings Major League All-Star Fielding Team glove mounted on a solid Oak platform featuring a portrait of Schmidt etched into a metallic gold colored plate with a pair of gold painted Rawlings baseballs supported by tripods of miniature golden bats on either side above the descriptive nameplate adorned with the familiar red Rawlings logo under each ball. This highly sought after piece from Schmidt’s private collection comes with a notarized letter of authenticity from Mike Schmidt.
