Outstanding sterling silver commemorative plate, from the July 27, 1957 Old Timer's game at Yankee Stadium, presented to Jim Turner.  Turner was a pitcher with a nine-year career, the last four of which were spent with the Yankees.  Turner finished his career with a 69-60 record and a 3.22 lifetime ERA.  The plate measures 11" in diameter, with the Yankees logo at the top center of the plate.  Engraved into the base of the plate is the following:

"Yankees-Detroit Old Timers
Honoring New Hall of Fame Members
Joseph V. McCarthy      Samuel E. Crawford
Yankee Stadium  July 27, 1957
James Turner"

Beautiful condition with a few areas of rare, one of only two of these plates we have encountered from this game.
