Already a veteran of four World Series appearances and three years in World War II, 32-year-old Phil Rizzuto enjoyed his finest season in 1950, logging career-bests in batting average (.324), home runs (7) and RBI (66). A runaway choice for the American League MVP honor, Rizzuto was subsequently and ceremoniously honored at Washington D.C.’s Willard Hotel, where The Touchdown Club of Washington presented him with this silver plate tray. Measuring 16-7/8”-diameter, the concave prize features an engraving that reads: "THE TOUCHDOWN CLUB OF WASHINGTON AWARD TO THE OUTSTANDING BASEBALL PLAYER OF 1950 – PHIL RIZZUTO.” The circumference is lined with ornate finery. Also included is a published biographical page signed by Rizzuto in blue ink (“10” strength). This unique ward comes from Rizzuto’s estate and comes with a letter of provenance signed by Rizzuto’s wife, Cora.
