Item Description
c. 1950s. 6" button with black cardboard reverse which includes fold out easel (never unfolded) and brass bar pin. Front has bold text "Brooklyn Dodgers" with smaller text next to cartoon of bum catching a fly ball in "Ebbets Field." The Muchinsky book pictures 32 Brooklyn or Los Angeles team name buttons. This is listed as L-r31 and of all the Dodger related buttons at $2500 he assigns this the greatest value. His comment in the book notes is "A Magnificent 6" Pin From The Brooklyn Dodgers, Made One Or Two Years Before They Moved To Los Angeles." Essentially Mint condition. A modest opening bid. Paul Muchinsky Collection.
