The 43rd MLB All-Star Game took place on July 25th, 1972 in Atlanta Stadium. The National League was victorious over the American League by a score of 4-3 in ten innings. After seeing their 8 All-Star Game winning streak ended in 1971, the game would mark the start of an 11 game winning streak for the NL; the longest winning streak by either league in the exhibition's history. In the bottom of the tenth inning, Dave McNally came on in relief for the AL. The first batter he faced, Nate Colbert (pinch hitting for Tug McGraw), walked. Colbert advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Chris Speier. Hall of Famer Joe Morgan singled, scoring Colbert and ending the game. Morgan was presented with the game’s MVP Trophy, this very trophy. It was consigned to us by Joe Morgan. The trophy itself is 24” tall including the wood base which measures 17” long x 6’1/2” wide. Sitting atop the trophy is a player in a batters stance which has been separated at the lower legs and repaired and is also missing his bat. There is a gold plaque at the bottom which reads “Presented to Joe Morgan by the Rawlings Sporting Goods Company for his outstanding performance in the 1972 All-Star Game, Atlanta GA.” The trophy shows wear with abrasions to the wood and metal as well as some discoloration to the metal and is in VG overall condition. It is accompanied by a hand-signed LOA from Joe Morgan himself.
