1942 1943 St Louis Cardinals Baseball National League Champions Pin Ribbon Ball

For auction is a vintage (either 1942 or 1943), pinback or pin with red, white and blue ribbon attached and a tin baseball suspended at the end of the ribbon. The pin was originally made for the 1938 Chicago Cubs and it celebrated the Cubs winning of the National League pennant. The pin was reused and an overlay was placed over the CHICAGO CUBS name at the bottom center to read ST. LOUIS CARDINALS. There is a pin stem in the pin that extends over the border of the pin body. The pin is 1 3/4" in diameter. The front shows some minor wear but no damage. The ribbon is complete with a bit of curling to the blue side. The attached tin baseball is about the same diameter as the pin. It has some scuff marks that I have tried to show in photos. Overall it is in good condition. The ball is marked MADE IN U.S.A. and KIRCHHOF NEWARK, NJ.
