Lot 9: Complete Hartland Collection (19 )
Number Of Bids:
Auction Date:6/24/2011 9:00 PM EST
The Hartland Company's series of 19 baseball statues, issued from 1958 to 1963, are so well crafted that each player can easily be recognized by their stance or pose alone. Each statue was originally designed to retail for $1.98 to $2.50. In 1958 dollars, that equates to about $20 to $25 today, so it understandable that most purchases of Hartlands were for special occasions, and most kids had no more than a few of them. All of the batting figures are complete with original bats and Yogi Berra figurine has mask. The set includes Eddie Mathews, Dick Groat, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays (with broken cap), Rocky Colavito, Duke Snider, Don Drysdale, Harmon Killebrew, Warren Spahn, Stan Musial, Nellie Fox, Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Luis Aparicio, Roger Maris, Ernie Banks, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra and the Little Leaguer. It displays beautifully.
