1904 Blue Label Cigar Makers Pin

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $928.00

This extremely rare advertising pin is one of a series of sixteen pins which were issued by Blue Label Cigars to honor the 1903 Boston American first-ever World Champions. Each pin in the set features a player portrait in black and white surrounded by advertising for Blue Label Cigars. Blue Label Cigar Makers pins are one of the most elusive and fascinating of all early baseball advertising pinback sets. To the best of our knowledge, no complete set has ever been assembled in modern times; and the only complete set in existence, which surfaced twenty-five years ago, was put together in the year of issue. This example features pitcher Barney Wolfe (William Otto). Imperfections include a slight bend, a tiny edge nick, and rust on reverse. Displays beautifully. Very Good condition. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $928.00
