1932-1956 New York Yankees World Series Press Pin Collection (13)
Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $3,525.00
Collection of thirteen New York Yankees World Series press pins, spanning the years 1932 through 1956, all originating from the personal collection of legendary Yankees scout Paul Krichell. Unless otherwise noted, each of the pins is in Near Mint condition and complete with original threaded-post fastener on reverse as issued. Eight different pins are represented here, with multiple pins for three of the eight different years (1949, 1950, and 1951). The years represented here are 1932 (Ex), 1947 (Ex), 1949 (two examples, one Ex-Mt), 1950 (three examples), 1951 (three examples, one Ex), 1952 (Ex-Mt), 1953, and 1956. Four pins are on their original Dieges & Clust cards as issued. (Collectors don't make a big deal about these little cards, but this is how many early press pins were originally distributed, and they are rarely seen with the cards intact.) Total: 13 pins. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $3,525.00
