A Grand Slam ~ no matter what you do with it or where you put it, it attracts attention! The basket is made of strong wire and dates from c1920-40. It has red rubber covered handles to assure a good grip on your groceries, as well as a nice splash of color. The basket itself is painted in old, matte mustard paint and the overall look is pretty grand, albeit in a subdued way. Inside, we have a pile of 28 baseballs, all vintage, all soiled and dirty and used, all sewn with red and all as full of character as the basket itself. The basket measures 14" long at top, 11" long at bottom, 9 3/8" deep and 7 3/8" high with the handles down. The handles stand about 6 1/4" above the basket rim when they're upright. As an innovative decorative accessory, this hits a home run!
