Circa 1912 Honus Wagner Statue
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $812.00
This finely detailed plaster statue presents an outstanding likeness of Honus Wagner and stands 12.5 inches tall. The name "Hans Wagner" is printed along the front of the base in raised lettering. Although no manufacturer's name is listed on the piece, it is very possible that this figure was made by the Sinamaker Art Statuary Company, which produced a series of similar statues in 1912. Both Wagner's figure and the base are painted gold. (Note: We have seen Sinamaker figures painted silver, including Wagner in an identical pose. Sinamaker-marked baseball figures are larger, usually standing about nineteen inches tall.) Aside from a repaired break to the bat, the statue is in Excellent condition overall. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $812.00
