Rare 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers Bruce Edwards' Day Pin

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480

Exceedingly rare pinback issued by the Brooklyn Dodgers in commemoration of Bruce Edwards' Day, held at Ebbets Field on September 21, 1947. The pin features a portrait image of Dodgers catcher Bruce Edwards in the center, with both the event and date noted in black lettering along the perimeter. Produced by the "Emress Nov. Co. 125 W. 26th St. N.Y. 1, N.Y." as noted along the edge. This is the first example of this pin we have ever offered and we can only recall having seen one other example at auction during the past ten years, making it a significant find for any advanced pin or Dodgers collector. The pin, which features a closed back, displays a tiny nick (breaks the surface) along the perimeter at approximately three o'clock, below which is an even tinier blemish; it is otherwise in Excellent to Mint condition.  Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $480
