1911 Diamond Gum Pin - Christy Mathewson

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $720

1911 Diamond Gum pinback of New York Giants Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson. Diamond Gum pins have long been recognized as among the rarest and most desirable of all early baseball pinback sets. To the best of our knowledge, only one complete set of all twenty-nine known Diamond Gum pins has ever been assembled! As noted on the reverse paper label, the pins from this series were issued individually in packages of Diamond Gum: "Get A Collection of Ball Player's Buttons Free With Diamond Gum." The pin displays light toning typical of the set and a tiny crimp along the edge at 11:00 o'clock. In Very Good condition overall. This is a fine representative example of this important Hall of Famer from one of early baseball-pinback collecting's most revered sets. Diameter: 7/8 inches. From the Dan Gantt Collection. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $720
