Ty Cobb Trophy

There are trophies within our collection that are in need of conservation work.

This Honey Boy Evans trophy was awarded to Ty Cobb in 1911, when he batted .420. (National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum)

One such trophy, is the George Honey Boy Evans trophy for the World’s Champion Batsman, National and American League, won by Ty Cobb in 1911. Cobb’s batting average for the 1911 season was .420.

The Museum accepts hundreds every year, all of which are donated. In addition to the ongoing cost of housing and preserving the artifacts, there are expenses involved with conserving those pieces that have degraded over time due to age.

Estimated conservation cost: $4,268
