Renowned sculptor Palmer Murphy was commissioned by the Baseball Hall of Fame for a set of 5 limited-edition bust statues—Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, Musial and, seen here, Robinson. Numbered "A0104/1500," the beautiful bronze creation measures approximately 18-1/2" tall and weighs 18-1/2 pounds. The engraved signature "Palmer Murphy 97" appears on the back collar above Robinson's immortal uniform number "42." A plaque on the wooden base carries the Dodger logo and Robinson's Cooperstown induction date. NM condition. It's worth noting that Palmer Murphy HOFer busts were featured in a 2014 episode of Antiques Roadshow.
