1941 N.A.P.B.L. (Winter Meetings) Press Pin
Out of stock
Convening literally hours before the shocking raid on Pearl Harbor, baseball’s executives exchanged issues concerning the imminent 1942 Major League season. It was during this convention (known as the annual "Winter Meetings"), that discussions were bandied of a blockbuster trade that would bring Ted Williams to the Yankees (with its short porch in right field) and Joe DiMaggio to Fenway (with its so-inviting Green Monster). The trade, of course, never materialized, but it tantalizes the imagination. Meanwhile, members of the media were gifted one of these offered press pins. It’s a positively stunning piece with elaborate detail, and comprehensive expression – "N.A.P.B.L." (National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues), the venue ("Jacksonville, Fla."), and the inclusive dates ("Dec. 3 4-5…1941"). The pin was manufactured by the respected St. Louis Button Co. (maker of most early Cardinals’ press pins), and their identity appears on the attaching nut. In terms of aesthetics, this piece rivals the entire family of standard World Series and All-Star press pins – both in material, and execution of detail. Furthermore, it’s in virtually ideal NM/MT condition.
