Collectible of the Week: Steve Carlton Gartlan Statue

Carlton Gartlan USA Figurines
Gartlan U.S.A. began production on their porcelain figurines in 1985.  Each player would (mainly) be represented in two versions – an 9” and the smaller, 5” (mini) – while in some cases a third figure was also created “Artist’s Proof”. The larger figure contains an authentic player autograph while the mini features a facsimile. The artist’s proof figurines feature both the player and artist’s signatures.

The Steve Carlton statues were released in 1989 and there are examples of each the 9", 5" and artist proof versions available: 

9” Figure – 3,290 (valued at approximately $50-75)
5” (mini) Figure – 10,000 (valued at approximately $15)
Artist’s proof - 250 (??? - couldn't find any examples)
