Awarded annually to the country's best athlete in each sport, Kiner was one of baseball's best players in 1950, as he led the National League for the fifth straight season in home runs, clouting 47 round trippers. LOOK magazine presented the offered Longines gold filled wristwatch to Kiner again acknowledging his prowess as the most feared power hitter in the National League. The watch remains in working order, and is engraved on the reverse "RALPH KINER L.F. LOOK 1950 ALL AMERICAN BASEBALL TEAM." It bears the notation of being "10K Gold Filled." This is a unique time piece from the legendary Hall of Famer, presented to him at the height of his stellar career. Obviously worn and treasured by Kiner with no notable defects, although the original leather band is no longer present. Full LOA from University Archives (John Reznikoff), cert. #11077.
