This lot is ideal for the collector looking to start this significant set. Please visit our website for more detailed descriptions of statues in this lot.

This lot contains:

Ernie Banks – The Banks statue stands well and the toning is minor. A replaced bat is included and the statues grades EX.

Yogi Berra - The Berra statue stands well and the toning is average though the back will show some staining. Berra’s mask is not included. Grades VG.

Nellie Fox – The Fox statue stands well and the toning is average. Grades EX/EX-MT.

Mickey Mantle – The Mantle statue stands well and the toning is minor. The original bat is included and the statue as a whole grades EX-MT.

Willie Mays – The Mays statue stands well and the toning is substantial. His arms are severed above the elbows and adhesive residue is visible from an apparent repair. Nonetheless, the arms can be plugged into the socket and generally stay in place.

Stan Musial – The Musial statue stands well and the toning is minor. The original bat is included on this attractive EX-MT statue.

Babe Ruth – The Ruth statue stands well and the toning is average. The original bat is not included and it appears that the “bat-hole” on his lowered hand has been enlarged.

Duke Snider – The Snider statue stands well and the toning is average. The original bat is not included (however a replacement bat is included) and the bill of his cap is cracked off. Grades GD.

Warren Spahn – The Spahn statue stands well and the toning is average. Grades VG-EX.

Ted Williams – The Williams statue stands well and the toning is substantial. The arms have been broken at the shoulders and adhesive residue is present from an apparent repair. The arms and original bat are included.
