    The baseball one is really well done.
    My #2 or 1A.

    The Stanley Cup is the only one players specifically dream about lifting. It's the only one players hand to each other to celebrate right on the field. It's the #1 trophy by a million miles. The other three aren't even in the same galaxy.

    The Stanley Cup Trophy reminds me of the still Grand Pappy used to fire up out back of the barn...


    Both the NBA and NFL trophies look like aliens from outer space



    The MLB trophy looks like a bird cage that's missing it's top...


    I can't make up my mind which one I like the most. 🤔

    Yes on the Stanley Cup. It even has a bowl you can take a shine to or take a drink of "shine" from.

    I like the ceremony of the hoisting of the Stanley Cup. Like the baseball for it's representative of all the teams via the flags. With it's history and for the aforementioned ceremony I lean to the "Lord".

    Well they do call it The Holy Grail!

    But seriously I'd like to see our other (UK) trophies (besides our usual NCAA Championship ones) displayed properly. I mean, our 1966 Rupps Runts who came in second are among the most beloved teams of our history. And 2014 was the most miraclous improbable NCAA run ever! Our 1997 Unbelievables just missed a repeat when we weren't given much of a chance and last but not least, our 1975 team whose freshmen would go on to win the 1978 title as seniors!

    I've seen pictures of those other trophies (SEC, UKIT, NIT) in vintage media guides and such and I do in fact think they should be displayed as well!
