Presented is a circa 1920s Reach figural baseball trophy. This approximately 8-1/2" tall metal award displays a 3 in diameter Official American League baseball topper resting on a trio of bats. The etchings and dated 1909 patent are visible. Despite expected oxidation, discoloration and moderate denting on the baseball, this memento is preserved in very good condition.

The engravings on the ball match the stampings found on 1910-1925 OAL Johnson baseballs, with "Official American League Ball" opposite the sweet spot and the "Reach" manufacturer's trademark on the panel just above.
