Sometimes in the pin world you must step up to the plate and give up something to get something..I have been a pin collector for 45 plus years and had only seen this pin once.. Well now twice! Extremely happy to add it to the collection.I really dont post many buys anymore but I just had to with this one. As a PM10 collector just an incredible item.. Nice union stamping on the back.. A Gem.. Enjoy...

I picked up a couple of lots of pins pretty cheap. There's some scarce PM10s in there, plus the tough to find studio pin of Vida Blue. Thar series has been tolhe topic of a fair amount of discussion.

Default 1940 Cincinnati Reds National League Champions pinback

I recently added this rare 1940 Cincinnati Reds National League Champions pinback to my advanced Johnny Vander Meer collection.
IMHO the condition is remarkable considering that it is 84 years old.

Although used sparingly in the 1940 season, Vandy was ironically called upon to be the starting pitcher on 9/18/40 @ Philadelphia.
This game clinched historic back-to-back NL Championships for the Cincinnati Reds.
Johnny was absolutely up to the task, pitching 12-innings for the win.
Vandy's line for the day: 10 K's and issuing only 3 walks, 8 hits and 3 ER.
The 1940 NL Champion Reds prevailed over the Phillies 4-3 n 13 innings...

Great pin, Scott. I treasure my vintage Washington pins that have the little plastic players attached. I have no proof of this, but I think the catchers are rarer than batters and pitchers. And I have ones with a solid plastic baseball with a glove or bat, but I'm not sure I've ever seen a hollow one like yours. When it comes to 3-D, oddball, chachkas, whatever you want to call them, IMO pins rule!

Default A's pins

Just picked up this group of Oakland A's pins. I seem to recall that somebody was maintaining a list of pins/players in this "set" (names in black box). IS that available somewhere? Was curious how many A's might be missing. I also noticed that there were two different Holtzman pins. I'm still searching for a few Giants (Kingman, Fuentes, Rader) from this set if anyone has some extras.

Unfortunately I don't think there any new ones in that lot. The last new one was a Bill Lee black box about nine months ago. I'll post the up to date known checklist in the next post. ETA you have every known Athletic except Angel Mangual.

Thanks, Cliff. Looks like I don't have Campaneris either. Do they ever come in packaging? Or were they likely just sold loose at stadiums or through souvenir catalogs?

I imagine these were unlicensed since there is no company name on them and there were so many names misspelled. It occurred to me last night that there are no Vida Blue’s known in this set which seemed very odd because he was a superstar in the early ‘70s.

Interesting. I had just assumed they were made by ASCO or some such company. Do you also have a list of the black box football pins? I know they are less common. I have John Brodie and I know I've see pins for George Blanda, Norm Snead, and OJ Simpson.

I wish now I did keep scans of every NFL black box pin I ran across but I did keep a few and I found a bunch just now looking on WorthPoint, I'm sure there are more. It's debatable on the Csonka, it doesn't have a team name and it's from the WFL.

Those are great. It looks like the football set was a little more star-driven.

I have never been much of a pin guy. But a Long time ago I purchased a large cardboard sheet, blue writing against an orange maybe salmon color. And it was covered un these little team pins. I sold them as sets until finally someone came along and asked to buy the whole sheet. But I did stash away these. Not a complete set as I remember a red sox and a Dodger pin.

Interesting. Crane used a blue and orange/salmon color scheme.

Based on the expansion era teams and saying on the coupon "1968 buttons accepted" I'm going to say most certainly 1969.

But it might also say "1969 buttons accepted" making it 1970. I can't tell for certain, too blurry.

Edit: It's Definitely 1969 not 1970, I see it says so on the mailing address.

Here is a Tarkenton black box button that I own. I own a few of the others shown like Namath and Unitas but this is the only Tarkenton I have ever seen.

That is the one NFL black box pin that I looked for specifically on WorthPoint and eBay and was amazed I couldn’t find, mainly because he was a Giant in the late 60’s-early 70’s. I couldn’t find a Gale Sayers either but he blew out his knee before these came out.

I collect these 1970s NFL Blackbox pins as well as the MLB ones. I saved a few images of pins I don't have yet, including this Gale Sayers pic. Good to see Fran Tarkenton make an appearance as well!

Ah, so there is a Gale Sayers. Of course they spelled his name incorrectly like they did a bunch of the Cubs .

You just gotta wonder who was in charge of “quality control.”

Those are great! Are they 2.25” or 3/3.5”? You almost never see the three similar but different SF Giants (Mays, McCovey and Marichal).
