Oval pin commemorating the Chicago Cubs' 1929 pennant-winning season. The attractive keepsake features a team photo of the club and is lettered "Champions 1929/Cubs Team." Attached to the pin by means of a string is charm in the form of small wooden bat. The bat is actually a whistle, with two holes and an attached reed for optimal noise making (it is not certain if the whistle was originally sold together with the pin). The pin (2.75 x 2 inches) displays a very small, slight linear protuberance that does not detract in the least from its overall Near Mint appearance. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+.
