About Me-The Process-Key To Our Success-COPYTROPHY


Always ask for ”Lee Butler” in communications.

‘Greetings Sports Fans”. Welcome subscribers and customers. Some visitors will be here either through word of mouth, or have previously commissioned a trophy from me via other third-party platforms. I now conduct over 90% of my trophy business directly though my store. Confidence via word of mouth and endless referrals through the memorabilia world is bringing you directly to me. Please feel free to purchase via my COPYTROPHY site offering you lower prices with full payment security.  

For the knowledgeable and until proven otherwise, it is my craftsmanship that sets the standards in this hobby. I look at you as a fellow collector. I regard your order as a commission to create affordable trophy art through hand crafted metalsmithery. I do not entertain wholesale, or memorabilia dealers. You will rarely, if ever see my work for sale at large memorabilia fairs or conventions. The majority of people who are in receipt of my trophies have commissioned me directly on a one on one basis. If anything i am a thorn in the side of retailers because i create a thing of beauty, and of unparalleled quality that is available to all collectors at a price dealers pay for overseas junk. I am certainly not a retailer who holds inventory that is ready to ship next day. On the contrary, our inventory are our tools and born out of these tools and your specifications a work of art is created.  Any trophy, by definition, irrespective of any attached paraphernalia is a material representation of an achievement/award. From the local pool hall to the razzmatazz of a major sporting final, the trophy that is presented represents both the achievement of the winners and is the visible symbol of the sport. My objective is to recreate the trophy so that the piece is worthy of offering the finest representation of the sport. We all know it is not real, however it is without doubt the ultimate collectible that allows us to champion our most cherished sports.

One of the most satisfying aspects of doing what I do is the feedback I get from you when he or she receives their trophy. I enjoy reading the feedback comments and I enjoy the process of getting this done for you. I like the challenge of taking an order and fulfilling it to the highest standards afforded to me. I am always a phone call (+1 831 471 5567) or email (info@copytrophy.com) away. You are my customer and customer service is my main objective. Any personalized hand-made goods must ultimately come with a personal touch.



Already over the past 12 months alone I have taken commissions for trophies from some of the sport’s top names. In Baseball every coach from the SF Giants (click for related article) along with every coach from the KC Royals are all proud recipients of my Commissioners Trophy. The list of recipients are quite extensive and a more detailed who’s who can be found in the World Series product page content.  


In Football I have been commissioned to make Vince Lombardi Trophies for all the coaching staff at the Denver Broncos after the unique SB 50 final. Some of the guys kindly sent me some pictures that you can view in the gallery page. One of my first ever commissions 8 years ago was to make a super bowl 1 trophy for Anne Bratton. Anne is now an ambassador for the NFL and daughter of Pete Rozelle, one of the founding fathers of the NFL. She takes great pride in her fathers collectibles and the only missing representation of the first Super Bowl was a SB1 trophy. This was the start of copytrophy.


As i was originally born in the north of England. It would come as no surprise to all my native American friends who know me that somewhere along the line i would make the ultimate soccer trophy. Well, boy i did. I often picture my trophies sitting proudly in a privileged position throughout numerous households and man caves the world over. Well it was a bit of a buzz watching live coverage of the Champions League Final on the biggest RTL sports channel in Europe and seeing my trophy positioned as the center piece of the studio set up.


All our trophies are meticulously hand-made to order. At the point of purchase you can request absolutely any additional art work at no extra cost, and no extra lead time.










Every trophy in my store has a none negotiable lead time of 3 to 6 weeks. We do not send them if they are not good enough to go, they will be rectified first, hence the flexible lead time policy.


All major credit cards are accepted. All payments via credit card or via your own pay-pal account now have the industry standard 180 days payment security attached.


I refuse to add small print disclaimers to incorporate quality scores such as ”small scratches, very minor dents and blemishes can sometimes be present” ask for pictures first etc. At COPYTROPHY this is not problematic enough to disclaim. I have no side notes or foot notes degrading my trophies. They say pictures speak a thousand words, well ”unfortunately not when photographing a silver object it doesn’t”. Everything about me and my trophies is fine tuned into delivering a trophy as perfect as one can replicate. This is why I have a zero quibble returns policy. I am not here to catch you out and I have always fulfilled my obligations on every occasion.

There are no borders to contend with for all my iconic U.S sports trophies. You receive the goods within the USA and any returns will be within the USA. Purchasing from overseas (import) for any iconic U.S trophies is inadvisable. The problems that regularly arise are very much self-explanatory.
