1924-1937 New York Giants World Series Press Pin Collection (4)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,880.00
This collection of four New York Giants World Series press pins consists of one from 1924, which marked John McGraw’s final appearance in the fall classic, and all three issued the following decade: 1933, 1936, and 1937. The 1924 Giants press pin is a particularly rare early World Series press pin. It should be noted that reproductions of the 1937 pin have been made. The offered example, of course, is an original (and bears a convex surface at the top of the threaded post as opposed to a sharp point at the top of the threaded post as found on the reproductions). With the exception of some very minor surface tarnishing to the 1933 and 1937 examples, each of the pins is in Near Mint condition. All four pins have been manufactured by Dieges & Clust, feature a threaded-post back, and are complete with original clasps as issued. Total: 4 pins. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,880.00
