The Grand Trophy was an award which originated from a race on the Ando Prime Centrum podracing course, located on the icy planet Ando Prime. By 32 BBY, the trophy was weathered and had come into the possession of the Toydarian junk dealer Watto, who kept it on a shelf in his junkshop on the planet Tatooine along with other treasured podracing memorabilia—items the Toydarian had acquired either as gifts from celebrated racers and pit crews or through illegal means. Round in shape and dull gold in color, the Grand Trophy was formed around a blue oval and rose from a concave sleeve that was perched atop a circular base.
