1960s Sandy Koufax Advertising Pin - Extremely Rare!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Pinback (3 inches in diameter) featuring a portrait image of Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax. Koufax's name is lettered above his image; the text below reads "By The American Male." This is an extremely rare Koufax pin and one of only two examples we have ever seen. Little information is known regarding its precise year of origin or distribution method. We are not certain if "The American Male" was a retail store, a magazine, or some other commercial entity, but this is clearly an advertising pin. Based on many factors, we are very confident that the pin dates to Koufax's active playing career in the 1960s and most likely represents a limited one-time promotional piece. The pin displays light surface wear, including a few minor scratches and abrasions, and minor oxidation on the reverse. In Excellent condition overall.
  Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $840
