Description

During his decades in professional baseball, “Iron” Joe McGinnity dazzled opposing batters by winning 246 games in the major leagues and another 171 in the minors. Despite his success, McGinnity did not enjoy his retirement for too long, as he succumbed to various illnesses at the age of 58. Offered is a unique 6x1x4 paperweight that originally belonged to Joe McGinnity. Being that this Hall of Famer passed away in 1927, original McGinnity artifacts demand a premium. This etched eleven-ounce paperweight displays the full name of the pre-war hurler in cursive. The deckled surface and flat reverse reveals moderate glass and age scuffing but still retains a pleasing eye appeal.
