This item is nice and original. This 1909- dated plaster figure is marked "Bill the Beamer, " and shows him with baseball in right hand. A highly sought-after item among political collectors. Classic plaster "roly-poly" statue of William Howard Taft with baseball in hand, marked across the front.The bottom is rounded so that the figure rocks when tapped. Taft was president from 1909 through 1913, and was the first president to be widely known as an avid fan of professional baseball.
He was always out in the stands to view the opening game and throw out the first ball, as a number of famous photographs attest. He attended several baseball games while in office and began the tradition of the President throwing the pitch at the season opener. We will gladly combine multiple items when shopping cart is used.
