Extensive Sporting (Mostly Baseball) Tabs Collection (50+)
Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $300
Collection of fifty-seven tabs, forty-seven of which are baseball related, spanning a period of five decades. (Most of the tabs are not dated, but the earliest dated tab is from 1958 and the latest is from 1995.) Similar to pins, these metal tabs feature an extension at the top that is meant to be folded over a lapel or pocket edge so that the tab can be displayed on a jacket or shirt. This is a diverse collection, including twenty-six examples that clearly relate to a major league team, either by text or logo. The remainder of the baseball tabs include those related to Little League Baseball, minor league clubs, and other baseball-theme events or promotions. In addition to the forty-seven baseball tabs, the collection includes seven related to sports other than baseball and three that have no relation to sports (one political and two business related). Sizes vary, with the smallest measuring 1.25 x .75 inches and the largest 3.25 x 2.25 inches. Excellent condition overall. All of the tabs can be viewed on our website. Total: 57 tabs. From the personal collection of Dr. Paul Muchinsky, legendary pioneer collector and author of Baseball Pinback Buttons: A Photographically Illustrated Compendium and Price Guide. Reserve $100. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $300
