About Us

Dave Mitri
Founder of Fantasy Trophies

Back in 1993, I looked around and saw the horrible trophies that were out there and soon realized I needed to sculpt something myself. I was going to art school at the time so I grabbed some clay and went to work. After weeks of sculpting, the Armchair Quarterback was born. When I finally unveiled it at my football draft my buddies went absolutely nuts. We clearly had the trophy that would represent our league for years to come and something that made the cash prize an added bonus.

A few years later everyone was talking about this thing called “the worldwide web” and I soon found myself with a website, domain, and a business. FantasyTrophies.com’s humble beginnings were in my parent’s garage in Cleveland, Ohio. It was there that the casting, chasing, finishing and shipping all took place.

Thanks for your interest.
