Description




When you play in a division with Vikings and Packers and Bears oh my, it's good to be the king of the jungle. Playing in the "Black & Blue Division", the Detroit Lions are subject to a steady stream of fierce competition and success is hard won. During the 1950s the Lions enjoyed their greatest period of success, winning NFL Championships in 1952, 1953 and 1957. From this haughty era comes this 1950s Gibbs-Conner Detroit Lions mascot bank. A lasting testament to G-C's captivating craftsmanship, this ancient example roars onto the auction scene in magnificent (NM) condition, with both the proud Lion mascot and the football coin receptacle presenting as factory fresh. Two slight imperfections are noted as having occurred during the original firing process and are not considered wear and tear. These minor flaws take the form of a small divot on the left end of the green gridiron base and a hairline surface breech in the recessed area between the helmet and the football. Both of these conditions are fully glazed over, making it obvious they are factory issues derived during the production process.
