Description

In 1959, two All-Star games were played. The second of them was hosted by the Dodgers, and with delightful imagination, their public relations department effected the design of the press pin. In 1950 (and again in ’51) the Brooklyn Dodgers fashioned press pins (both of which turned out to be World Series phantoms) as “Dodger blue” fedoras, with the familiar image of a press pass immobilized in the external hat band. In deference to that earlier design, the Dodgers merely substituted a sombrero for the fedora – a statement of their new culture in the Southwest. This one is a fine rendering with nearly perfect detail – clean plating and undamaged enamel. And though its threaded post is missing the nut (a standard fixture), this pin is yet NM/MT.
