Description



Just last year, one of these jumbo jewels was auctioned for over $7,000. Why? Because the 3-1/2"-diameter pins were only available at Yankee Stadium in very small quantities for a very brief time—late in the '61 home-run chase, to be exact...
before Maris belted #61 on October 1st. Why else? Of the small number that have survived at all, few are pristine due to their large size and their vulnerability to age and storage conditions. This fine specimen bears a small surface bump away from the real-photo portraits yet is otherwise a Near Mint blazer. It's a visual head turner in terms of classic graphics and superb preservation. One of the most desirable stadium pins ever made!
