Description

Portraying big league mascots throughout its brief 1950s run, Cleveland’s Gibbs-Conner & Co. was all-too-familiar with Native American-themed mascots and really went to town on this Boston Braves variation! Standing at 6-5/8”-tall, this pristine porcelain example is slightly taller than the standard models simply because of the ornate headdress, which only adds to the “Braves” logo on the jersey, tomahawk in his right hands and war paint accenting a wide grin. A coin slot resides at the back of the head.
