Description

In 1969, Ralph Kiner gained national prominence by calling the New York Mets NLCS and World Series games for NBC Radio. It's doubtful that Kiner needed the offered Press credential to get in or around the stadiums, but they nevertheless issued him a press pin, which Kiner kept for decades. Anyone can own a 1969 World Series Press Pin, but if you want the ultimate example, this Hall of Famer's example is the one to have. Near Mint overall, with the original tie tack—all original and completely intact. Full LOA from University Archives (John Reznikoff), cert. #11075.
