1953 Yankees Souvenir Pinback

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $345.00

Large style souvenir pinback, 3.5 inches in diameter, features the 1953 New York Yankees. The Yankees' identification as "American League Champions" (as opposed to "World Champions," which they ultimately were) suggests that this impressive souvenir pinback was likely produced to be sold at the stadium during the 1953 World Series. The blue is a little light at the bottom of the "9" and "5" of "1953." This is an as-manufactured minor factory flaw. Ex-Steckler Collection. There are very few large team pins from the early 1950s. Each is a classic. The five-time World Champion 1953 New York Yankees is an especially historic team, making this very attractive stadium souvenir pin of potential interest to Yankee collectors as well as pinback collectors. Excellent condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $345.00
