1913 Herb J. Pennock Philadelphia Atheletics World Champions Pocket Watch
Though best known for his time with the New York Yankees, Herb Pennock won his first World Series pitching for the Philadelphia Athletics. It was only the player's second year, but in 1913 he and his team got take on the New York Giants to compete for the penant. The A's trounced the NY ball club that year, taking home a win in just five games. Subesquently, Pennock would eventually end up playing in the same state as his first World Series opponents, for the Yanks, and went on to achieve feats for his new team such as his 1924 season, in which he went 21-9 with a 2.83 ERA while striking out a career-high 101 batters, and his 1926 season where he posted a career-high 23 wins.This item is Pennock's World Champion watch from that 1913 series with the A's. A pocketwatch cast in 14 Karat gold, this is a gorgeous timepiece in fully working condition. While the glass at its front has been replaced, the rest of the item is in its original form, and looks almost new. On back, an engraving of a baseball diamond is surrounded by a circle with the words "World's Champions 1913," while the inside back has "HOWARD 14K 131058" writen into the metal. On the other side of the interior, "Herbert J Pennock" is engraved in caligraphy, encircled by a gold ring with "Howard Watch Co. Boston" carved into it. The face is a standard twelve-hour analogue watch, with hour and minute hands, along with a separate circle and hand to count seconds.
