1925 National League "Golden Jubilee" Baseball Pass
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,066.50
Baseball pass issued to "Mr. George O'Neil & Party" in 1925 on the occasion of the National League's "Golden Jubilee" 50th anniversary. The pass is presented inside a leather wallet (3.25 x 2.75 inches) that opens up to reveal a circular gold medallion insert designed in the shape of a baseball, set within a velvet matting. (We believe the medallion is 14K but cannot remove to see the stamp on reverse.) The gold medallion reads "1876-1925 National League Golden Jubilee" in blue. Printed in gilt lettering upon the interior front cover is the number "299" (denoting the issue number of the pass) and the recipient's name. While we cannot state with certainty, this pass might have been issued to George "Mickey" O'Neil, who was a member of the Boston Braves in 1925. The National League's 50th anniversary was celebrated with great fanfare. This pass was designed to be saved as a special keepsake for recipients, though distribution must have been very modest: We can recall previously seeing only a couple of examples of these ever offered in years past. The exterior binding displays moderate-to-heavy wear. The interior portions remain in Excellent condition. The gold medallion is in Near-Mint condition. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,066.50
