Default Any ideas about what this thing might be?

It's plexi, 5" x 5" with a swiveling spring clip. I'm thinking something for a vendor but the clip is at the bottom so it wouldn't clip to a shirt...

Default My Two Cents

With that number (186), I am guessing that people hung these from their car visors to allow them in to the park in certain places on game days. Just a guess.

There are three listed in worthpoint that all sold in 2013. They all have the number 186 on them. The seller called them "usher badges".

I don’t see how they could clip to an usher...too big, too heavy and the clip is on the bottom. Odd that they all seem to be #186

5x5 is too big for a badge to hang on your clothes?

5x5 is large but clip on bottom maybe clipped to hat. Is it heavy? Again clip on bottom might be a vendor clip clips on sign to let others know they are approved stadium vendors? Only 2 times I can remember seeing bottom clip are these two. J

I'm seconding the parking pass/visor clip notion.

Seems like a good guess. The hat idea has merit, too, but the clip swivels so it would be hard to keep upright. Thanks for the feedback, guys!
