Description

The 1946 National League pennant race was a nail-biter right to the end of September. Brooklyn played well throughout the campaign, ultimately claiming 96 victories. But it was the Cardinals who topped the circuit – bettering the Dodgers by two games in the final standings. As the season drew to a close, the Dodgers’ front office, anticipating a pennant victory, was compelled to confirm an order for their World Series press pins (due to the standard lead-time of manufacture). This they did. The order was executed, but the Dodgers wilted in the final hours of the season and contented themselves to listen to the World Series on the radio. Dutifully, the manufacturer (Dieges & Clust) fulfilled the press pin order, and some of those ’46 Dodger World Series press pins (known as phantoms) survive to this day. And one of them is here available. The material integrity of this pin is absolutely perfect; we report some very light tarnishing to the surface thereby limiting its condition to about Near Mint. The pin includes its original nut.
