1959 L.A. Dodgers World Series Press Pin - Original
- Source: eBay
This auction features a World Series press pin from the 1959 Los Angeles Dodgers, made by Balfour. This was the first World Series appearance of the Dodgers in Los Angeles. They won. This press pin came from the son of a fine sportswriter who covered the 1959 World Series as a career sportswriter. He wrote about baseball for many national magazines and the Des Moines Register. The pin is a true original and is in great condition. It presents perfectly. The only flaws are the the black spot on the side behind the "s" in Dodgers -- it can be seen on the metal rim with a magnifying glass but it does not penitrate the white enamel. The back has some blotchiness. The metal post is threaded and strong. T is no back clasp. Please see the photos. Thanks for looking.
