The 1973 World Series featured a classic struggle between the defending World Champion Oakland Athletics and the New York Mets, who won the National League East title. The Mets nearly pulled off a grand upset after taking a 3-2 lead in the Series, but the Athletics prevailed with two wins upon returning to Oakland for the deciding games. This trophy is exactly the same as the team trophy presented to the Oakland Athletics and was presented by A's owner Charlie Finley to one of his favorite executives. The trophy stands 24 inches tall with a diameter of approximately 13 inches. Its black base has a gold plaque with the engraving "Oakland A's 1973 World Champions" and also has the name of each player engraved in it. The trophy has a flag representing each team and a slightly scratched silver baseball with the year "1973". The A's and Mets logos are both attached on small pedestals and a crown stands on top. A green plate with the scores of the World Series games is attached to the base. The trophy has an overall near mint appearance and its full size makes it an extremely rare piece. Miniature trophies are commonly offered, but an actual team-size trophy is seldom seen. It is breathtaking in both stature and appearance.
