1925 Pittsburgh Pirates World Series Press Pin

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,058

Pittsburgh Pirates press pin issued for the 1925 World Series against the Washington Senators. This is the first World Series press pin ever issued by the Pirates and for its design the club found inspiration in Pennsylvania's nickname, fashioning the pin in the shape of a keystone. The decorative pin features a black-and-gold color scheme offset by a large white baseball in the center. This is an extremely scarce World Series press pin and is usually one of the last ones needed by collectors assembling a run of 1920s press pins. Manufactured by Whitehead & Hoag; threaded-post back. Approximately .75 x .75 inches. Slight normal wear to the clasp on reverse; otherwise Nr-Mt. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,058
