It’s one of the two 1912 World Series trophies that were presented to the team.

It took eight games for the Red Sox to win that World Series in their first season at Fenway Park. Darkness forced game two to end in a tie.
The Red Sox won it in front of the home crowd.
The particular trophy that’s up for auction, according to Heritage Auctions, was given to manager Jake Stahl.
The other trophy given out that year went to the team’s owner. Its whereabouts is unknown.
The current online bid for the World Series trophy is $90,000. Its estimated value is around $300,000.
The auction runs until August 2nd.
In case you’re wondering, the Red Sox currently have a replica of that trophy on display at Fenway Park.
