One of only two known examples, 2.25" without maker's name showing the manager of the 1915 World Champions Boston Red Sox. Most likely, this wonderful relic would have been made for members of the Royal Rooters. Carrigan in uniform is set in the center of a bean pot to symbolize the city. His name is misspelled on the button as "Corrigan." The 1915 Boston Red Sox, behind a rookie left-handed pitcher named George Herman "Babe" Ruth dominated the American League during the regular season with a record of 101-50 under manager Bill Carrigan. Including Ruth, all five Red Sox starting pitchers won at least 15 games in 1915, while the offense was led by a pair of future National Baseball Hall of Fame outfielders: Tris Speaker and Harry Hooper along with Ruth, during his limited at-bats while on the mound. Boston concluded their superb 1915 season with a World Series victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in five games. Button is pinned to brownish-red 13.5" woven fabric sock which has about half dozen 1/16" or less pin holes, largely on the side folded inward. Button surface has small degree of minor denting noticeable mostly just to the touch. Typical and light widely scattered surface wear in reflected light but displaying glossy and stain free. VF. Paul Muchinsky Collection.
