Description



Rounding out the three precursors to the annual tradition of A.S. Game press pins that began in 1946, here's the small, sterling-silver third example that was produced under WWII supply restrictions in 1943. It's a wonder the memento got made at all, let alone survived to this day. It measures 5/8" square and displays EX condition (missing reverse nut for threaded post) with a raised-relief ballplayer surrounded by the text in a baseball-diamond design. This was the first Mid-Summer Classic played at night under artificial lights!

 

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.
