Some players go their entire careers without winning a World Series, but Kevin Mitchell earned his championship ring as a rookie in 1986 with the New York Mets. Mitchell's single in the ninth inning of Game Six helped the Mets to their improbable come from behind victory. In the middle of the 1987 season, Mitchell was traded to the San Francisco Giants after just 62 games and hitting .306 with 15 home runs down the stretch. Two years later in 1989, Mitchell became the toast of the baseball world when he belted 47 home runs, racked up 125 RBI, scored 100 runs, batted .291 and ran away with the National League MVP Award. Mitchell was equally up to the task in the postseason too, hitting .353 with two homers and seven RBI against the Chicago Cubs in the NLCS. Genuine MVP Awards are exceedingly rare and this is a stunning example. Featuring a bust of baseball's first commissioner in the center, the Award reads "Kenesaw Mountain Landis Memorial Baseball Award - Most Valuable Player National League - Kevin Mitchell San Francisco Giants". It measures 16" in diameter and is in splendid NM-MT condition with no real flaws to speak of. There are three foam rubber strips on the reverse that can easily be removed should the winning bidder desire. The Award is accompanied by a Mitchell LOA.
