Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Tom. Not to be a stick in the mud. But I am very sure the blue background Dimaggio is a fantasy pin, not vintage. <br />I would love to see more large photos of your collection. Please keep them coming. I've been collecting pins for a short time (2 yrs.)and missed out on the days of inexpensive pieces.

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Clint, not a bottom feeder to me. That Wichita pin is great...how difficult is that one? I only have a few pinbacks left as I'm streamlining my collection and getting rid of most everything that is not displayed (besides photos) or Nebraska related.<br /><br />I have one left that I'll not get rid of and that's an 1896 Little Pinkies pin which has a little baby holding a ring bat. Not sure what happened to my scan of it as a bunch of my photos from photobucket have disappeared. <img src="/images/sad.gif" height=14 width=14><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Clint</b><p>Dan, it's fairly tough. I seen one on ebay sell for over $150 bucks. I think two button collectors got in a bidding war over it. I actually have two of them and one other different style. Have you ever seen any Lincoln Athletic buttons like these?<img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1184980613.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Nope. No Athletics or Chiefs pins that I know of. The three lincoln pins I have are pre 1947 which would make them for the Lincoln Links which could have been either Western League or Nebraska State League.<br /><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Nebraska%20Baseball%20Memorabila/lincolnpin3.jpg"> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Nebraska%20Baseball%20Memorabila/lincolnpin2.jpg"><br /> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Nebraska%20Baseball%20Memorabila/antelopepark.jpg"><br /><br />At one time I contemplated collecting items from all the Western League teams from 1947-58, but most of it usually goes for high dollars and I figure I'm competing against guys like you and me who may have been looking for years for that certain item.<br /><br />btw I think that Wichita pin is outstanding. I can only hope that something like that exists for the Lincoln club.

Posted By: <b>Clint</b><p>Thanks Dan. With the popularity of pins and buttons I would think that there's one out there. <br /><br />I went to the Wichita Historical museum a few years back and they had a pin from the 1910 baseball team. I about fell over when I seen it. They also had a mint Fan Taz dispenser as well as two or three lemon peel balls. If you have any historical societies in Nebraska check them out as many have baseball items. They might give you a heads up on what's out there.<br /> <br />I picked this one up on ebay a few years ago.<br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1185042367.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>I'm getting closer in finding the dates on my Lincoln pinbacks...they are from sometime between 1906-1918 as those are the years Lincoln played at Antelope park. Lincoln built a new park in 1922 "Landis Park" named for Judge Kenesaw Landis where they played until Sherman Field was built in 1947.

Posted By: <b>mr. moses</b><p>and iconic "Yellow Kid"..... The "kid" and other products born of R.F.Outcault's talent are pretty widely collected by a few different kinds of collectors. Artist Outcault's cartooning is noted as being the first successful running strip in a newspaper that produced income by it's inclusion - and a first of sorts as a "character" that was actively marketed on it's own. Outcault was also the artist for the well known Buster Brown and Tigue characters. Comes from a set of 155 or so with different themes. Dan, your Little Pinkies is from a set of 21 (really 20 as there are two variations of the base ball player).<br /><br />(edited to introduce clarity <img src="/images/wink.gif" height=14 width=14> .....

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>I saw those pinbacks too Clint...and I know I said I was staying away from other teams in the Western League, but this was so hidden I'm sure I was the only collector who saw it...I ended up as the only bidder. I've seen quite a few different Sioux City over the years, but I don't think I've ever seen a Wichita (1950s) other than the two you showed recently, and I've never seen a 1947-61 Lincoln pinback.

Posted By: <b>Al Simeone</b><p>Hi Clint,<br />Actually not long I aquired the whole group in 1 large buy about 30 years ago. My collection was one of the largest and I probably had the most HOFers . Great pain in selling it but due to 2 personal reasons one I will say a son in medical school, I felt the time was right. I still have a few I will post them soon as I get a chance. My main love are the PM10 stadium pins. 1 3/4 and 2 1/8. like the ones Tom posted.

Posted By: <b>David Keller</b><p>Al - I love that particular PM10 series too but I've only come across two, and the Klu is the only one I was lucky enough to win.<br /><br />Clint - The Stenzel's Rooters pins have to be about the rarest set I've come across. I have seen 10 different players in the set, but only one of each. Would love to hear if anyone has any info on the set or other players to add to my checklist. Here are the ten players pins I've seen:<br /><br />Donlin, Mike <br />Ewing, Bob <br />Hahn, Noodles <br />Kellum, Win<br />O'Neil, Peaches<br />Pietz, Heinie <br />Schlei, Admiral <br />Seymour, Cy <br />Sutthof, Jack <br />Woodruff, Sam <br />

Posted By: <b>Rhett Yeakley</b><p>They were produced by the Petibone Manufacturing Co. of Cincinnati. Most are found with the "Stenzels Rooter" paper backing, if your Seymour is the same one I saw on ebay I believe it was missing the paper back. One of the players I have (Harper I believe, will have to check later) is the only one from the set I have seen that has a "Petibone Manufacturing" paper insert as opposed to the Stenzel paper backing.

Posted By: <b>David Keller</b><p>Rhett/Al - Thanks a lot for the photos. I love the Pepsin and Stenzel Rooter pins.

Posted By: <b>Wesley</b><p>Thanks for not running me up even further, Daniel. Here is a scan of Young today. PSA is not my first choice for cards, but the holders that PSA uses for pins are amazing.<br /><br /><br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/Temporary_files/cameopepsinCyYoungPSA5sm.jpg"> <br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Clint</b><p>I just got this great pin in the mail today. Dan B. gave me the inside line on this baby and I was lucky enough to get it. The seller, Bert Wright, is a great guy who sells on ebay under Wrightstuff. Thanks again Dan for helping out. This is what collecting is about and I hope to return the favor soon. The pin is bigger than I thought as it measures 1-3/4".<br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1189544398.JPG">

Posted By: <b>andy</b><p>I agree Al. Many of you have seen this one but for those that haven't here it is. I think the writing on the back makes this one. This button had only one owner before me. Her sister thought she lived or worked right on the parade route. I'll help you with the back: <br /><br />"I feeling fine - Will write soon - I want you to wear this everywhere you go. Waiting for the boys, I mean the Cardinals. There are so many people in front of our door, we can't get out." <br /><img src="http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z228/andypcl/ml26cards3.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z228/andypcl/ml26cards5.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Dan, Those are very nice pins and many are tough to find. <br /><br />Andy, That is the one of the coolest pins I've seen. You are correct about them being out there, but the inscription makes it sooo much better! <br /><br />Thanks for sharing, both of you.

Posted By: <b>Al Simeone</b><p>Very nice pin Andy! So nice to see that little bit of history on the back. I truely think the cardinals put<br />out some of the nicest pins made!I also like the orioles pins. I remember when you picked up the one listed above!!

Posted By: <b>andy</b><p>Thanks. That Oriole pin was one of the very few that I actually stepped up and spent a few bucks on. I was worried about the condition but on arrival it turned out to be a beauty. <br /><br />The same lady that had 26 pin also had this common one. But with a very uncommon back. Have any of you seen this back-paper?<br /><br /><br /><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z228/andypcl/mlcardinals12.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><br /><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z228/andypcl/mlcardinals13.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a>

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Wow...sweet pin Andy. I'm sure you already know this, but Famous-Barr is one of the backs found on the M101 cards. It was a boys clothing store in St Louis.

Posted By: <b>Greg Theberge</b><p>Great looking pins everyone. Thanks for posting them.<br /><br />Aaron - that 1912 Red Sox pin is a great one (although I personally think it would look real good sitting next to those other Red Sox pins shown earlier in the thread if anyone happens to find one <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14> )<br /><br />All the best and good luck with your quest. <br /><br />Greg

Posted By: <b>Phil Garry</b><p>Here is a close up of the 1896 Paterson, NJ Team Pin that I posted a while back in this thread but it was in a PSA holder and very tough to identify.

Posted By: <b>Rhett Yeakley</b><p>Just thought I would ressurect this trhead to show the 2 backs for the Stenzel's Pins (I finally got around to scanning them). I have only seen one card with the Petibone backing, and I bought it (It is on my Peitz, not Harper as stated earlier). Just wanted to add how delicate the pin mechanism is on these pins.<br />-Rhett<br /><img src="http://www.starsofthediamond.com/stenzelbacks.JPG"><br />

Posted By: <b>David Keller</b><p>Rhett - Thanks for posting the Stenzel pin backs. Based on the info from your paper back, I believe this is the guy who had the pins made. Note the restaurant/bar across the street from the ballpark in Cincinnati.<br /><br />From Baseball-Reference.com<br /><br />"Jake Stenzel played at a time when the ball was the liveliest ever, so his statistics have a lot of air in them. Even so, he was a very good ballplayer.<br /><br />His lifetime batting average is .339, over 9 seasons. He ranks # 18 on the all-time list with that average, right under Lou Gehrig. However, Stenzel never was higher than 9th in the league in batting in any one season. His lifetime on-base percentage is .408, ranking # 41 on the all-time list. However, he was never higher than 7th in the league in any one season.<br /><br />In spite of that, he was a good ballplayer, with an Adjusted OPS+ of 135. His best years were all clustered in the period 1893-1897. His best year was 1894, when he posted the line of .374/.447/.539, and while he dominated his own team with those stats, none of those stats were in the top five in the league.<br /><br />He began his professional baseball career as a catcher in 1887.<br /><br />After his playing days, he opened up a restaurant and bar across from the ballfield in Cincinnati. However, when the U.S. joined World War I, business slowed and Stenzel was forced to sell the business and become a night watchman. He died in 1919, from what is said to have been the influenza."<br /><br /><br /><br />Here are a couple more common Reds pins, but I like them.... <br /><br /><br /><img src="http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u180/dave1000x/RedsPinbacks0002.jpg">, <img src="http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u180/dave1000x/RedsPinbacks0001.jpg">
