Keith Hernandez 1986 New York Mets World Series Trophy
This is the actual trophy awarded to Gold Glove first baseman Keith Hernandez after his Mets defeated the Red Sox in the memorable 1986 World Series. There's a Balfour sticker on the bottom, it is in EX-MT condition and signed in 8/10 gold Sharpie. As in all World Series trophies, the pins of both teams are displayed up front and the pennants of the other major league clubs fly above the rest of the piece. The clutch-hitting Hernandez is widely regarded as the greatest defensive first baseman in history, and he compiled a .296 lifetime batting average. The 1986 World Series was just the second ever (and second in as many years) that saw a team drop the first two games on its home field only to ultimately prevail. The Series' most iconic moment was in the 10th inning of Game 6 when Bill Buckner allowed Mookie Wilson's ground ball scoot through his legs, allowing the winning run to score. To this day, Mookie claims he would have beaten Buckner to the bag anyway.
