1940s through 1980s All-Star Game Press Pin Collection (40)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,819
Large run of forty All-Star Game press pins spanning the years 1947 through 1988. All are different. Unless otherwise noted, all of the pins are in Excellent to Mint condition (or better) and complete as issued. All variations in style (i.e., brooch, clasp, charm, etc.) have been duly noted as well. From 1959 through 1962 two All-Star Games were played each year, with a separate pin issued for each game. In our listing for those four years we have noted the venue of issue for the pins included here. The collection is comprised of the following years: 1947 (Ex), 1949 (Ex), 1950 (Vg-Ex), 1951 (Ex), 1952, 1953, 1955 (brooch back removed and replaced with a clasp; otherwise Ex), 1957, 1958, 1959 (Los Angeles; Ex), 1959 (Pittsburgh), 1960 (Yankees; Ex), 1961 (San Francisco; Vg-Ex), 1961 (Boston), 1962 (Chicago; Vg; missing its rear fastener), 1962 (Washington; clasp), 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966 (Ex), 1967 (needle post; Vg-Ex), 1967 (pendant), 1968 (needle post), 1969 (needle post), 1969 (charm), 1970 (needle post; Vg), 1971 (needle post), 1973 (needle post), 1974 (Vg-Ex), 1975, 1976 (Ex), 1978 (needle post), 1979 (charm), 1980 (needle post), 1981 (needle post; missing its rear fastener), 1982 (needle post; Ex), 1983 (needle post; missing its rear fastener), 1984 (needle post; missing its rear fastener), 1987, and 1988. This is a very substantial collection as is, or could provide an excellent foundation for the assembly of a complete All-Star Game pin collection. Total: 40 pins. Reserve $500.
