#8422 - Scarce 1937 Lou Gehrig Stadium Pin with Felt Pennant Still Intact! Estimate: $400+

In the early days of baseball and up until the 1960s, stadium pins were a very popular collectible. It showed the world who your favorite team and players were, in many respects these pins were the 'social media' of its day. Many of these Pre-War pins are scarcely seen at all, and rarely witnessed with attachments fully intact. This example portrays the Iron Horse Lou Gehrig within a circular image with "YANKEES" across the top and "LOU GEHRIG" printed along the bottom of the 1.75 inch pin. Attached is a small felt pennant with "1937 YANKS" in painted white, for a total length of 5 inches. The pin has several small scratches in the celluloid portion, but do not detract from the overall image of Gehrig. The reverse of the pin displays zero rusting and the pennant is clean overall. This scarce pin remains in excellent overall condition.
