1897 Cameo Pepsin Gum Brooklyn BBC Team Pin

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,320

Pristine team pin of the 1897 Brooklyn BB Club featuring portrait images of twenty team members. This is a "miracle pin" approaching (in our opinion achieving) perfection. It is flawless! Cameo Pepsin Gum pins are among the rarest and most significant of all baseball pinbacks. Not only were they the first baseball pinback set, but one of the few baseball issues of any kind dating from the late 1890s. The team pins are a very distinctive subset of the larger Cameo Pepsin Gum pin set, with only seven different teams known. The offered example has perfect contrast and is complete with its original paper backing. We grade this gem to be in MINT condition! Manufactured by Whitehead & Hoag. Diameter: 1.25 inches. From the Dan Gantt Collection. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,320
