As the Tribe contended and even “interrupted” the Bronx Bombers during the 1950s, civic pride was prevalent in Cleveland, where local manufacturers crafted these porcelain Cleveland Indians statues. Here are (8) rare survivors! Includes: (3) Gibbs-Conner: (3) different “Chief Wahoo” portrayals with (1) 7”-tall baseball bank (feather included); (1) 7”-tall standing on home plate (feather included); and (1) 6-1/2”-tall standing bank (minor crazing on latter souvenir); (5) Stanford Pottery: crafted by the Sebring, Ohio-based plant, each 8”-tall “Chief Wahoo” statue features a hollowed base and a shiny gold-colored tooth. Back in the day, this was baseball’s version of “bling.” These Stanford Pottery examples are pristine!
