World Champions Trophy Tour

Giants Trophy Tour

San Francisco Giants Announce Plans for Upcoming
San Francisco Giants World Championship Trophy Tour
presented by Bank of America

Tour begins on January 8th and concludes on Opening Day, April 5th

This will be the second public trophy tour held in the past three years and will feature both the 2012 and 2010 trophies. The focus of the San Francisco World Championship Trophy Tour presented by Bank of America is to share the trophies with Giants fans in Junior Giants communities throughout northern California.

"It was really important to us this time, given a second opportunity, to create a trophy tour which allowed us to connect with our fans as well as the more than 20,000 kids who participate in our Junior Giants baseball program," said Larry Baer, Giants president and chief operating officer.

The organization is working in partnership with their Junior Giants Leagues throughout northern California to create public viewing opportunities in the following cities throughout the months of January, February and March. Fans will have the chance to both have their photo taken with the trophies and support their local Junior Giants Baseball League.

PERSONAL PHOTO POLICY

There have been a large number of fans attending each of the trophy viewings. The Giants intend to accommodate as many fans as possible during the viewing time period Fans can take photos of the trophies with their personal cameras up to a designated area while waiting in line. Once fans have reached that designated area, only the professional photographers will be allowed to take a posed photo of you or your group.

LINE POLICY

Fans are advised to arrive early as the line will be cut off, if needed, to allow the trophies to leave at the designated end time. A Giants representative will assess and determine a cutoff point in line. A fan who arrives during the designated viewing time is NOT automatically guaranteed a photo with the trophies. Fans are accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Major League Baseball World Series Trophy Fact Sheet



In 2000, Major League Baseball commissioned Tiffany & Co. to create one of the most celebrated awards in all of sports: the World Series Trophy. The Commissioner of Baseball presents this trophy to the winning team of the annual World Series. The goal of greatness is crafted into every detail of this revered trophy:

  • The initial World Series trophy was created by Major League Baseball in 1967. The St. Louis Cardinals, who defeated the Boston Red Sox in seven games in the World Series that year, were the first World Series Champions to receive the trophy.
  • Trophy's official name is "The Commissioner's Trophy." Each year, one full-sized trophy is crafted by Tiffany and awarded by the Commissioner of Baseball to the championship team.
  • The trophy is created at Tiffany's workshop in New Jersey.
  • Master artisans employ age-old techniques - spinning, silversmithing, chasing, hand engraving, and polishing - to create the trophy.
  • Design features thirty pennants representing the teams in the American and National Baseball Leagues. The pennants encircle a dome base, which is etched with latitude/longitude lines symbolizing the globe and adorned with twenty-four karat gold vermeil applied stitches representing those on a baseball. Engraved on the base are the words, "Presented by the Commissioner of Baseball" along with the commissioner's signature.
  • Sterling silver trophy weighs approximately 20 pounds and stands 24 inches high with a diameter of 11 inches.

Tiffany & Co. also creates the World Series MVP Trophy, presented to the Most Valuable Player of the World Series; the All-Star Home Run Derby Trophy, awarded by Major League Baseball to the winner of the Home Run Derby during All-Star Week; and the Commissioner's Historic Achievement Award which is awarded at the Commissioner's discretion. Previous winners include Cal Ripken Jr., Tony Gwynn, Roger Clemens, Ichiro Suzuki and Rachel Robinson.

Tiffany & Co. creates trophies for many of the world's greatest sporting events. These designs include the National Basketball Association Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the National Football League, and the U.S. Open Tennis Championship Trophies. Inspired by the transcendent form and energy of competition, these outstanding Tiffany designs are a lasting tribute to the athletes' dedication and the thrill of victory.
