Description



Whether its the time-tested mid-summer exhibition or the October grand finale, the All-Star Game and World Series are labeled "Classics" for good reason, as stellar play is required to advance and proper credentials are necessary for on-site viewing! Here are some of the latter in the form of coveted press pins. With posts and nuts intact throughout (with variations noted), the accessories include:

 

World Series Press Pins:

1967: Boston Red Sox

1970: California Angels (phantom pin, Angels were as close as within three games on September 4 before a 5-17 slump dashed their hopes)

1971: Pittsburgh Pirates

1972: Cincinnati Reds

1975: Boston Red Sox

1976: New York Yankees (proudly proclaiming "It's Our Thirtieth!")

1978: Cincinnati Reds (phantom, as Reds finished 2.5 games behind the Dodgers)

1979: Pittsburgh Pirates (charm attached to hanger with threaded post)

1984: Detroit Tigers
