1995 Albert Belle Bronze Trophy Bat
Stellar award presented by the Cleveland Indians to controversial slugger Albert Belle for accomplishing the near impossible task of hitting 50 home runs and stealing 50 bases in the same season. He's still the only MLB player ever to accomplish this feat. Stupendous baseball art sculpture is a baseball bat exact in specifications to Albert Belle's Louisville Slugger handcrafted in SOLID BRONZE. It is 34" in length and weighs an amazing 12 pounds 6 ounces. Lovely texture and rich bronze patina makes this an absolutely beautiful piece. Nearly 100 silver bats that have been awarded and they start at $15,000+. This is the only bronze one. The bat is signed and initially below the knob by the artist "HOY". It is engraved below the knob "1/2". The other (2/2) was presented to Belle (this one was made for his mother). Belle neglected to pick this one up and left for the Chicago White Sox soon after. Sold by the Cleveland Indians Baseball Club for charitable purposes, it later landed with a thud into the Charlie Sheen Collection. An amazing object as well as an equally thrilling sports artifact.
