ADDITIONAL NOTE: BECAUSE OF THE GLARE OF THE SILVER, PICTURES WERE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE. THESE PICTURES DO NOT DO THIS PIECE JUSTICE.As one of the best left handed pitchers in baseball history, Eddie Plank was instrumental in the early Philadelphia Athletics dynasty which won three American League titles and two World Series from 1911-1914.
After their five game conquest of the fabled John McGraw led New York Giants, the Philadelphia Sportswriters Association presented this incredible and absolutely stunning Sterling Silver jewelry box to Plank in honor of his and his teams' remarkable achievements that year.
The top of the box is exquisitely engraved the name of "Edward S. Plank" of this rare and extremely significant artifact, which in turn is bordered by a gorgeous floral design. That's not all. When opened up, the interior lid displays the details of the Game 5 World Series clinching victory. Incredibly, it reads as follows(Rare inscription of Christy Mathewson as well):
Philadelphia Athletics1913 World ChampionsPhiladelphia-3 New York-1WP- Plank. LP-Mathewson
Philadelphia Sportswriters Association
Simply put, one of the more fascinating early 1900s significant baseball awards ever offered at sale. Although not an "official" baseball presentation, it remains to this day the only one ever known to be awarded, and the only known example to exist.
The box itself is lined with cedar, and was produced by the famous "Tiffany & Co." from New York.The Tiffany jewelry company was the premiere manufacturer of sterling silver presentation pieces at the time. It displays only modest handling wear and remains in outstanding Excellent to Mint condition.
This box has been in our family possession since 1955.
