1972 marked the first time the Major League All-Star Game came to Atlanta, and the National League commenced a record 11-year winning streak with an exciting 4-3 victory in 10 innings. This two-piece award was presented to Red Schoendienst, who was a coach for the winning team that night. The wood base features the logos of all 12 of the National League teams at the time, and a metal plaque in the shape of home plate reads: "PRESENTED TO RED SCHOENDIENST ALL STAR GAME JULY 25, 1972" with NL President Charles S. Feeney's signature and title engraved, and the league logo is placed above the plaque. The cut-glass portion is in the shape of a mountain and sits on top of the base. The National League logo and "ALL STAR GAME 1972" is etched in the glass. The award is in EX-MT condition. All-Star MVP Joe Morgan delivered the "walk-off" hit in the bottom of the 10th.
