Posted By: <b>Dan Kravitz</b><p>I picked up an Honus Wagner pin and it is a little dirty. Would you clean the pin of this or would you leave it alone? If you would clean it, what would you use? Any info would help.<br /><img src="http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i12/chiprop/Wagnerpin.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Tom Boblitt</b><p>Might not hurt to try it out on some other cheaper pin that appears to be similarly made. Don't try to clean the old 'Cracker Jack' pins with water (by the way, they are from Button Gum, not Cracker Jack) as the picture can blur. Speaking from experience..........<br /><br />
