1940s and 1950s Brooklyn Dodgers Pin Collection Including Rarities (37)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,900
This advanced collection includes many rarities and is comprised of thirty-four different Brooklyn Dodgers pins (including some which appear similar but are variations), plus two Brooklyn Dodgers tabs, and a Schaefer Beer pin. Several of the most desirable Brooklyn Dodgers pinbacks are included in this collection, which has been assembled over a period of decades by an extremely advanced Brooklyn Dodgers collector. Of special note is the "Beat Them Yanks" (3.5-inch diamter) pinback with Brooklyn Bum illustration and the classic 1947-dated "Our Bums" (2-inch diameter) stadium pinback. Look these over carefully, as there are many other rarities! All of these pins and tabs date from the 1940s and 1950s and range in diameter from .75 to 3.5 inches, with the majority measuring either 1.25 or 1.5 inches. Two of the pins are dated "1947," while another was specifically produced for the 1955 World Series. Ten of the pins feature a ribbon and/or charm attachment. It should be noted that while five of the pins themselves featuring ribbons and/or charms are duplicates, the attachments for each are different. Condition ranges from Vg to Nr-Mt, averaging Ex-Mt. All of the pins can be viewed on our website. Total: 37 items (34 Brooklyn Dodgers pins, two tabs, and a Schaefer beer pin). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,900
