Item Description

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS PLATE WILL GO TO LAMAR PORTER FIELD RESTORATION FUND.  

Chip Culpepper had taken home plates to a Hall of Fame level. His "Cooperstown, Arkansas" plate honors seven players from Arkansas (born, raised, or died) who are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. Made of sheet copper, art foil and India ink, it also includes "baseball cards" for each man that includes his HOF plaque and biographical information. (And a bonus photo of Chip and Brooks Robinson.)

 

Item Special Note

Proceeds from this special plate in our auction will be designated for the Lamar Porter Complex fundraising program that Chip is actively involved in. The Jim Elder Good Sport Fund is a long time supporter of Lamar Porter Field and the RBI program plays there, so this is a perfect collaboration.
