Description


In 1951 Ralph Kiner again led the National League in home runs with 42, the sixth consecutive year he led the league in that category. He also led the league in slugging at .627, runs score with 124, and as further proof Kiner was the most feared hitter in the league, leading the league in walks with 137. LOOK magazine selected Kiner to its yearly All-America team and presented him with this exquisite solid 14K gold wrist watch. Produced by Schaffhousen, renowned Swiss watch maker, the watch continues to be in working order. Ignoring the significant baseball aspect, the watch itself has its own collectible history that dates to 1868. Kiner obviously appreciated this time piece and wore it often as he had a solid gold band custom-made specially for his own everyday use, and bearing his large initials "RMK" at the clasp. More than an ounce of solid gold is offered here. The reverse is period engraved, "Ralph Kiner LOOK All -America 1951." Full LOA from University Archives (John Reznikoff), cert. #11071.
