Chalmers Award

     The Chalmers Award was the first Most Valuable Player Award, presented by the Detroit based automobile company from 1911 until 1914.  The winner received a brand new Chalmers "30" roadster.

   It was retired in 1915 in large part because the company wouldn't let one player win twice, and the award became less prestigious and less interesting.
