Trophies, Medals, Lapel Pins and Awards by Sport
Mementos, prizes, awards have been received for ages all over the globe as a symbol of victory, especially in sports To show personal achievements made by an individual, trophies are made to remind us of our goals achieved in life. These awards come in different shapes and sizes, based on what it represents, and the goal that was reached.
World's Tallest Trophy
Who knew that the largest of these trophies would come out to be the world's tallest trophy made for Sharjah Cricket Stadium which is located in Hong Kong. This trophy was a 13 feet tall trophy, weighing over 440 lbs, had to be wheeled onto the ground by a fork lift! No one had ever seen anything so huge in mass for a game of cricket.
World Cup Trophies
Another trophy that we found interesting goes by the name of FIFA World Cup Trophy, stands 36.5 centimeters (14.4 inches) tall and is made of 5 kg (11 lb) of 18 carat (75%) solid gold with a base (13 centimeters [5.1 inches] in diameter) containing two layers of malachite. Produced by Bertoni, Milano, it weighs 6.175 kg (13.6 lb) in total, depicts two human figures holding up the Earth. Made in Italy, it was first presented in 1974 to captain Franz Beckenbauer in a World Championship game of soccer. Today it is currently worth $68,125.
World's Most Expensive Trophy
The most expensive we found a trophy known as the Doncaster Cup, formerly known as the Doncaster Gold Cup, is a Group 2 flat horse race in the United Kingdom open to thoroughbreds which are three-years-old or older. The 150-year-old piece of silverware is now offered as a perpetual trophy by the Australian Jockey Club for the Group Three Sir Frank Packer Plate (2000m), run at Randwick tomorrow."A jeweler valued the trophy at around $250,000," -JC racing manager Col Tuck

The service was great and when I recieved the plaque, it was even more beautiful then I had imagined it would be. You were able to help us stay in our price range and did not change extra for an added word I submitted to you. The packaging was also very well done. Thank you, I'm certain the recipient will be pleased!
