This lot has closed

Estimate: $1500+

Description

Attractive full-size replica World Series trophy, measuring approximately 28″ tall with a 14″ diameter base, featuring 30 metal flags (one for each Major League team) encircling a baseball-shaped base, with golden ring engraved, "Presented by the Commissioner of Baseball," and the silver base engraved, "2018 World Series Champions." The bottom plate is engraved, "World Series Champions, 2018, Boston Red Sox." In fine condition.

Led by Mookie Betts and J. D. Martinez at the plate, and David Price and Chris Sale in the starting rotation, the 2018 Red Sox finished the regular season atop the AL East with a 108-54 record. They cruised through the playoffs and squared off against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series, defeating them in five games. The series was filled with heroics by notable underachievers: Steve Pearce hit three crucial home runs, David Price won Game 2 and Game 5, Nathan Eovaldi pitched six extra innings to save the bullpen, and Joe Kelly dominated in a relief role, pitching in every game and allowing zero runs.
