For years after retiring as a player, first baseman Johnny Neun was managing in the minors when he won this silver plated cocktail shaker/pourer, with "Piedmont League Champions 1936, Johnny Neun, Mgr. Norfolk Tars, Presented by Norfolk Lions Club" engraved on the shaker. It comes with two goblets and is stamped by Excelsior on the bottom. It is in EX condition. Neun was one of a handful of major league players to turn an unassisted triple play, and the only man since 1914 to record five hits and five steals in one game, having turned those tricks in 1927 with the Tigers.
