Description

Of the "Original 18" statues released by the Hartland Plastic Company between 1958 and 1962, two stand above all others in terms of scarcity, Dick Groat and Rocky Colavito. Presented is an original Hartland of one of those elusive figures, Detroit slugger Rocky Colavito. This detailed likeness of the 7-1/2" piece is virtually flawless, free of scuffing and other markings associated with the series. The accompanying bat reveals minute cracking which is difficult to notice. As common with other Hartlands of the era, Colavito does not stand, unless he is helped a little. Reportedly only 10,000 Colavito pieces were manufactured, with probably a scant few surviving, so the scarcity of this piece is undeniable. The original box and tag are not included.
