Iconic Boston Braves press pin issued for the 1914 World Series against the Philadelphia Athletics. All pre-1920 press pins are extremely rare and this example is especially desirable as it commemorates one of the most improbable World Championships in baseball history. On July 18, 1914, the Boston Braves were in last place and trailed the first place Giants by eleven games. Miraculously, the team then went on a remarkable winning streak that saw them post a record of 60-16 to close out the season and capture the pennant. Dubbed “The Miracle Braves,” the team continued to work its magic in the World Series by sweeping the heavily favored Athletics in four straight games. The circular pin with scalloped edges is lettered “World Series – Braves 1914” and features in the center the raised image of an Indian Chief rendered in extremely fine detail. There is an extremely tiny surface imperfection on the "W" in "Worlds"; otherwise in Near Mint condition. Manufactured by Bent & Bush; threaded-post back. Diameter: 0.75 inches. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,370
