It's a shame the '38 Bucs fell 2 games short of a World Series berth. Foremost, it deprived the Waner brothers of a shot at avenging their 1927 loss to the Yankees. But it also deprived the national media of this gorgeous Forbes Field press pin! Hence, history was made with the first official "phantom" press pin for the Pirates-Yankees World Series rematch that never happened. This stunning example is an absolute blazer, beautifully designed and enameled. Dimensions of the Whitehead & Hoag showpiece are 7/8" x 7/8". NM condition.


Please Note: While every press pin in this collection is completely original, we cannot guarantee that every threaded-post reverse carries the original backing nut. In some cases, the nut may be a replacement of the exact original style, in some cases it may be a replacement of a similar style.
