Default Its always a good time for a Pinback thread!

So, I can't sit back and complain at the volume of Coach's Corner/Chris Morales/fake eBay Ruth/Gehrig auto threads and not contribute something meaningful to rebut them.

I love cardboard et. al., but this has been my collecting passion over the last 3-years.

Not many toughies (if any)...but I love 'em nonetheless

Finished up shadowbox #2/6 this weekend -- can't wait to start #3.

Looking forward to Strongsville!

Nice. I've just got a few pins of Lefty O'doul and a Sweet Caporal of Duffy but have gotten into boxing pins lately:





I also like Peter Max and have a small collection of his pins from the movie Paint Your Wagon:

Here are some of mine. One-dimensional, to be sure, but I've always enjoyed collecting, discovering and learning about pinbacks.

As an Indians fan, I must say, those look f***ing great...

AB keep up the good work, they shadowboxes are looking good. Looking forward to Strongsville here as well. Think I'm going on Sunday with my dad and the kids...

I have always loved collecting pinbacks. Here is a small sample of some from my favorite team.

Great pinbacks everyone. Love seeing pinback collections as much as I like seeing cards.

Rob, you're not doing the Young and Feller any justice...you can hardly see 'em. Have tried on a couple of occasions to pick up the Young pin but with no success.

My favorite pinbacks are of Pittsburgh Pirates greats (pre-war and post-war).

I was fortunate to pick up the PM1 earlier this year and the Diamond Gum followed about 2 mos later...



The next 2 pins are of my favorite player of all-time. Would rival some of the toughest pre-war pins in terms of scarcity. Was lucky to add a second one about 3-4 years after purchasing the first one...



Mike

Default More pinbacks.

Here are a few of mine. Been collecting pins for 20 years, and just got into baseball pins about a year ago.

Lately I've been thinking about collecting baseball pinbacks, as a diversion from cards. But what is holding me back is not knowing anything about them, expecially about reproductions. Can anyone recommend a good book about baseball pin collecting. Thanks.

Louis,

A good reference book is Paul Muchinsky's guide. It's a nice, hard-bound book with tons of color photos. Has a small section in there about detecting reprints. Paul does infrequently post here, you may want to try to contact him as I think the books are ordered directly through him.

I think Hake also had a pinback book, but it was printed years ago, but might be good to get familiar with what's out there.

One last thing, check some of the old auction catalogs (i.e. REA, Mastro,etc.) as they usually have pinbacks in each auction.

Mike

I just posted a blog entry from a contemporary (1953) TSN account about these Kiner [inbacks on my blog. It's linked below.

Hi Bob,
Very nice read on the color Kiner pin. I own that pin and one thing I always wondered why it was made in color like that. Thanks for the read and as we talked about one day I will have to re-do the PM10 section of the catalog.

Default Baseball Pinbacks

Just picked this one up last week. Was surprised to find this gem in a Chicagoland antique mall display cabinet among other antique non-sports items for a steal of a price. First time I have ever seen this pin with ribbons and attachments.

Since my name came up on this thread regarding spotting fantasies and reproductions, as a fellow collector I am happy to offer my opinion on any pin that a fellow board member would like my advice/opinion on. Please send a picture of both the front and back. I know nothing about cards, signatures, or pennants, but am most willing to share my opinion about the authenticity of pinbacks.

Sincerely,

Paul Muchinsky

I'm happy to assist you in any way I can in enjoying pinbacks as collectibles. Please write any time.

Thanks, guys.

Scott, the pin was at a dealer's table at the Strongsville show. I saw it as I was getting ready to leave. The show's not that big, so it's pretty easy to cover the floor, and I had looked at pretty much every table at least once or twice. The pin was at a table I hadn't really looked at because most of the stuff was newer, and there were a lot of non-baseball items.

I luckily happened to notice it among a couple boxing pinbacks, and needless to say my exit was delayed.

Incredible pick-up, Rob. Congrats!

I must've looked at every table 2-3 times, & I completely missed that one.

W-O-W.

How large is the celluloid?
