Description: Exceptional Harvey Haddix Perfect Game presentational tray and goblet set c.1959. The game played on May 26, 1959 was not to be of any significance. The Pirates were playing the Milwaukee Braves in an early season contest with Harvey Haddix on the mound for the Pittsburgh team. Twelve remarkable innings later baseball history had been made. Haddix pitched a Major League record 12 consecutive perfect innings, amazingly, in a one run loss. The offered presentational set was given to Haddix by the National League in recognition of his amazing feat. Silverplated tray measures an impressive 22" in diameter inscribed at center, "To Harvey Haddix In recognition of his outstanding performance-unprecedented in baseball history-Pitching 12 Consecutive Perfect Innings Game of May 26, 1959". The line score for both teams is listed beneath along with "Presented by National League of Professional Baseball Clubs". Surrounding the center area are facsimile autographs of his Pirates teammates including Haddix himself. The lot also includes (12) sterling silver goblets (total weight of 76.8 troy ounces) each inscribed with the details of each out per twelve innings. For example, inning #4 lists O'Brien fanned, Mathews flied out to CF, and Aaron flied out to CF. Very unique and significant pitching related award of the highest craftsmanship.
