|For the "racetracker" who wants to own a piece of racetrack memorabilia. This circa 1930's trinket box of Italian calfskin leather, accented on the hinged lid with a brass jockey cap and crop, lined in green velvet and stamped "Italy;" comes from the estate of Tommy Luther, Racing Hall of Fame American jockey and founder of the original Jockey Guild. The story goes that Tommy was the jock originally chosen to ride Seabiscuit in the "Match of the Century." He turned down the chance and handed the reins over to his friend George Woolf. After the race, Woolf gave Tommy his crop, now part of the permanent exhibit at Racing Museum in Saratoga. Condition: Excellent with age appropriate patina, minor wear. Size: 4"x 3"x 2" high. Perfect place to store some winnings!|
