I found this Deron Johnson on Worthpoint that sold on eBay in February, 2017. The seller mentions in the listing that the pin is two inches, and what I believe is the proof is that the MLB emblem on the left that shows the batter swinging doesn't have the red border line going all the way around it like it does on all of the regular 3 1/2 inch pins. I am pretty sure that all of the small pins are missing the red line, I noticed it on the 2 1/4 inch Ernie Banks that I have and the 2 1/4 inch Willie McCovey that ooo-ribay has shown scans of. The first scan of the MLB emblem with no red line is the Johnson, the second scan of the MLB emblem with the red line is from a 3 1/2 normal sized pin. I apologize if the Johnson has been mentioned before, I don't follow the memorabilia section on a full time basis.
These continue to be pretty rare and bring good prices, at least for some guys. A decent, but not great, condition large Mays just sold on eBay last week for $255.

I can't tell !00% from the scan, are your small Mays and McCovey pins missing the red line around the swinging batter emblem and do both large pins have the red line?

I had forgotten I had this pin, I had to look for it because it wasn't in my main pin box. It was in a lot of vintage Cubs pins on eBay a couple of years ago that I probably wouldn't have pursued if this pin wasn't in it. I am pretty certain that it was a promotional item for the 1969 set of 12 Cubs t-shirt iron on transfers that were available at Chicagoland Jewel food stores (someone told me that's where the transfers were given out, anyway). It measures 3 inches and is a high quality made pin although the back is tarnished. I included a couple of scans of the large t-shirt iron on transfers.

Wow, that’s great! I’ve collected Cubs stuff for years and have never seen this pin.

I have been told these were produced for Steve Blass Day in his home town. I believe these represent all three versions.

Good job on finding those! One pickup or one at a time?

Great stuff Mike -- I wonder what the turnout was like on that Steve Blass Day.
Here's the pin back worn by the organizers that day --

I ventured out of collecting pocket with this one but found it visually appealing. The 73 Bucs were in Montreal on April 15. I assume this is a Canadian issue? Has anyone else come across something similiar produced for a visiting team? I saw nothing really significant regarding this game and date.

I saw that one, too, and checked the date like you did, to find out it was a road game for the Buccos. I wonder if they were produced for a group of Pirates fans who made the trip up to Montreal for the game to identify them as being part of that group. Just a guess.

I'm not sure what I have. Not sure these are authentic. Saw these at a flea market, bought 'em all. $2/pin. Marked 1969 mlbpa, MFG in USA. Some of the teams had disbanded by this year. Jackie Robinson is with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Eddie Matthews is with the Milwaukee Braves. Others include Duke Snider, Sandy Koufax, Al Kaline, Roy Campanella, Satchel Paige, Ron Santo, Whitey Ford, Hank Aaron, Maury Wills, Robin Roberts, Willie McCovey, Juan Marichal, Orlando Cepeda and some others.

The Giants are good....never knew there were pins of guys no longer playing in 1969, but I’d bet they’re legit as well.

The Giants (along with Mays and Jim Ray Hart) are plentiful. I wonder if these were some sort of premium. They don’t seem substantial enough to have been retailed.

I ventured outside of my comfort zone, and picked up this early Pinback. It's dated 1898, and features a very early depiction of an African American Player.

I did not google or research the Greenfield Baseball Team at all.... Just liked the aesthetics and historical significance of this piece.

I’ve never seen the patent date stamped on the curl. In that era, it was usually shown on a paper label.

Default 1968 Tiger pin and key chain

In the mail today, 1968 Tigers pin and key chain. The pin is faded but I really wanted the key chain. The other side of the key chain is the Tigers American League Champs photo.

Not exactly Mayseum quality, but I was tickled to pick up this oddball Bob Brenly from 1979. It fits in well with my SF Giants minor league pins. I have a soft spot for BB for a number of reasons...

He lived down the hall in my freshman dorm at Ohio University. Somehow, I ended up in the "jock dorm."

He suffered through the Giants' 100 loss season of 1985 and later contributed to Roger Craig's "Humm Baby" teams.

Finally, he had a day to remember in 1986 (see article).
