1897 Cameo Pepsin Pittsburg BBC Team Pin

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $830

Pristine Cameo Pepsin Gum team pin of the Pittsburg BB Club features portraits of the entire Pittsburg baseball team. The team pins are a very distinctive subset of the larger Cameo Pepsin Gum pin set, and are extremely rare. There are only five different teams known in the set. They represent one of the earliest baseball pin issues ever produced. This is a spectacular high-grade example. The contrast on this pin is outstanding! The quality of the image and tremendous detail is unimprovable. Every portrait is crystal clear. No stains. No fading. The original back paper advertising for Cameo Pepsin Gum (which is often not found at all on Cameo Pepsin Gum pins) is complete and intact. An ideal example all respects. Strong Near Mint condition. Diameter: 1.25 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $830
