Description



Yes, it's a pitcher, and yes, he's right-handed. Yet there's no denying the resemblance to a certain world-famous lefty slugger's physique and countenance. The 15-3/4"-tall comical figure displays at first glance as EX-MT, though close examination reveals a repaired crack (possibly a complete separation) across the left ankle and extending onto the green base below, as well as scattered hairline crazing to the white uniform/face surface. There may in fact be some ample restoration throughout in the form of color touch-ups, but the effect is so discreet as to be hardly discernible.
