Description

A trio of prominent athletes is found on these 1956 Gunther Beer Hall of Fame gold statues. The approximately 15 tall casts feature pugilist John L. Sullivan, baseball great Babe Ruth and gridiron great Jim Thorpe. The moderately worn display pieces each have a variety of abrasions, contusions, surface chipping, scratching, and light tarnish. Each statue is melded to a rectangular base that states the birth/death date of the athlete. The bottom and top of these famed statues are crowned by the pronounced Gunther trademark.
