Description



We must return once more to the late, great Jim Johnston, who, in his inimitable prose styling, reported, "The 1948 St. Louis [pin] is the utter expression of an anti-hero. The unending plight of the St. Louis Browns was an enduring melodrama, and any tangible treasures they produced have become the stuff of legend." Indeed, the only Browns player selected for the contest was Al Zarilla, who went hitless. Yet the cap-themed pin itself remains quite desirable among collectors in the know. 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.
