I purchased this inspirational paperweight for my 34 year old son who has been a lifetime baseball fan. He has always had a goal to see every stadium in the country by the time he was 40. Now he is a successful married business man who has given me three wonderful grandchildren. He still loves the game but he loves family life much more. His office however is filled with filled with inspiring quotes. Which is why he has just made Vice-President at his young age. He might not make all the stadiums. But the spirit of Babe Ruth is with him with this awesome paperweight!

My comment is that I still have not received this paperweight. UPS says it was delivered on 12/17 and again scheduled for 12/23/2013, and I called UncommonGoods on 12/23/2013, and the customer service rep promised that I would receive a replacement this week, and as of today 12/30/2013 I am still waiting for it.
