#8429 - 1953 Brooklyn Dodgers Jumbo Stadium Pin - MINT condition! Estimate: $400+

Issued for World Series distribution at Ebbets Field, this 3.5 inch Jumbo pin was sold at various stadium concessions honoring "Dem Bums" of 1953, one of Brooklyn's most prolific teams, and one of the greatest major league offenses ever to take the field. Led by Duke Snider and NL MVP Roy Campanella, those two sluggers each hit more than 40 homers, and are fittingly in front of each other in this team photo. Also included are the iconic Jackie Robinson, instantly recognizable in the middle row, Pee Wee Reese and Gil Hodges. This pin is in the ultimate condition, and is most likely the finest condition specimen in the hobby. Even the most fastidious collector would be hard pressed to find any faults with this piece.

One typical fault of stadium pins with large team images is an out of focus image, but not this example which is blessed with crystal clear registration. All the text "BROOKLYN DODGERS 1953" and "NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS" are perfectly printed in deep Dodger blue. No finer example could exist for this stadium-issued scarce pin, distributed to commemorate the Dodgers in the World Series.
