Lot 629.  Eight 12-Ounce Tumblers from Hickok Recognizing Vintage Sports Champions. These glasses honor champions of Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Hockey League, the Masters Golf Tournament, the National Basketball Association and the Kentucky Derby from 1946-63. One glass is devoted to Heavyweight Boxing Champions, 1908-62, and another, to the S. Rae Hickok Professional Athlete of the Year, 1950-63. Hickok issued the glasses, which are nm-m in the original box. The Kentucky Derby glass has a very small chip inside the rim. Each glass is designed with a decorative gold frame around the name of a champion player or team. The sport is identified on a raised section at the top of the frame. A gold illustration representing the sport is above. Familiar names include Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Jack Johnson, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, Assault, Citation, Swaps and Needles. Among the Hickok Award winners are Marciano, Willie Mays, Otto Graham, Mickey Mantle and Palmer. The 1946 champions were the St. Louis Cardinals, the Chicago Bears, the Montreal Canadiens, the Philadelphia Warriors (1947), Herman Keiser, Joe Louis and Assault. A price tag with the glasses indicates that they cost $5.95 in 1964. That’s more than $50 in today’s dollars. We’ll start the bidding a bit lower than that.
