1945 Chicago Cubs World Series Pin Collection (3)

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $812.00

Collection of three different styles of 1945 Chicago Cubs World Series souvenir stadium pins issued to commemorate the Cubs' participation in the 1945 World Series. Each pin features two bear "Cubs" holding bats and an original decorative ribbon and hanging charm attachment: 1) "World Series 1945." Orange background. Very small amount of virtually undetectable light foxing at 6:00 mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy, otherwise in Near Mint condition. Diameter: 1.25 inches. 2) "World Series 1945 Chicago Cubs." Diameter: 1.5 inches. Blue background. This is a very unusual and rare style. The ball and bat charm attachments are wood and show a little wear. The pin is in Near Mint condition. 3) "Cubs World Series 1945." Orange background. Near Mint condition. Diameter: 1.25 inches. Very unusual group of three different variations of these very scarce souvenir pinbacks produced for sale to Chicago fans at the 1945 World Series. While the Cubs beat the Tigers hands down in the celluloid pinback department, unfortunately this had no impact on the actual outcome of the World Series, as Detroit edged out the Cubs in seven games in the World Series. Total 3 pins. Reserve $300. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $812.00
