1915 PM1 Ornate Frame Stickpin Collection (3) - Evers, Lajoie, and Speaker
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $840
Collection of three different baseball stickpins from the 1915 PM1 ornate-frame series. These pins differ slightly from the regular PM1 pins in that they do not feature an ornate frame and are stickpins as opposed to brooches. However, they do feature the same exact oval player images as those in the PM1 series and were obviously issued by the same manufacturer at approximately the same time. Therefore we refer to them with the same alpha-numeric designation as the brooches. The stickpins are actually rarer than the brooches. These are the first examples we have offered during the past twenty years! The players represented here are Nap Lajoie (Ex-Mt with strong contrast!), Johnny Evers (VG), and Tris Speaker (batting facing forward; Vg). The pin lengths vary slightly, with the shaft on the Evers pin having been broken or cut. The oval portraits measure .5 x .75 inches. Total: 3 pins. From the Dan Gantt Collection.
Reserve $300. Estimate $500+++. SOLD FOR $840
