1921 New York Giants/Yankees World Series Press Pin
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,258.75
Press pin issued for the 1921 World Series between the New York Yankees and New York Giants. Because both clubs called the Polo Grounds home in 1921, only one pin was issued for the Series. The 1921 World Series press pin is one of the rarest press pins from the 1920s (or from any era) and it is seldom found in such exceptional condition. This example certainly ranks among the finest we have handled. The elegant center design features a gold baseball, crossed bats, and the date set against a white enamel background. "World Series Polo Grounds New York Press" is lettered in gold along the perimeter of the blue enamel border. In addition to being scarce in any condition, the 1921 World Series press pin is a true condition rarity. The design of pin, particularly the blue and white enamel, makes it especially susceptible to wear. The offered example has miraculously survived the ages unscathed and remains in Near Mint condition. Manufactured by Whitehead & Hoag; brooch. Approximately .75 inches in diameter. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+. SOLD FOR $3,258.75
