If abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollack designed home plates for the Red Sox, it would shatter and splatter like the white plastic atop this rubber pentagon that beveled its way into the bottom tip of our nation’s oldest active baseball diamond at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. History is rarely so tangible as to hold a piece of it in your very hands, as is the case with this 12 pound, 4 ounce plate, unbolted and well-traveled from the home of the Green Monster, and the curse of the Bambino (now lifted). The plate measures 19 ? x 19 ?, and crackles (literally) with the spirit and tread-upon durability of countless runs scored by the game’s greatest athletes. Plate is solidly held together and in tremendous shape, despite its dirtied, punctured, weathered, cracked, and chipped appearance, and the one 3-inch piece of clear tape that is used to secure a loose granule near one of its diagonals. Bottom has five metal screw holes for application. Comes with LOA from person who obtained plate at Fenway Park.
