1924 Mrs. Sherlock's Bread Pinbacks PSA-Graded Complete Set (10)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,644

High-grade complete set of 1924 Mrs. Sherlock’s Bread advertising pins. There are ten pins in the set (of which nine are Hall of Famers), each featuring a black-and-white portrait surrounded by a red border. Ruth is the key pin in this rare advertising pin issue. Eight of the ten pins have been graded and encapsulated by PSA: Alexander (EX-MT 6), Cobb (EX 5), Hornsby (EX-MT 6), Johnson (EX-MT 6), Maranville (Ex), Moran (EX 5), Ruth (EX-MT 6), Sisler (Ex), Speaker (NM-MT 8), and Wagner (EX-MT 6). The Mrs. Sherlock’s Bread pins have long been recognized as one of the most desirable advertising pin sets of the era. This is a quality pin issue. It is hard not to appreciate the tremendous value represented by the Mrs. Sherlock's pins compared to cards of similar vintage and rarity. The original back paper on the pins is complete and intact on the reverse of eight of the ten pins (all except Moran and Sisler). Diameter: 7/8 inches. Total: 10 pins. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,644
