No. Dr. Muchinsky directed that the Collection not be sold until his youngest grandchild reaches the age of 22, at which time it is to be auctioned though the most efficient means then available. Thus, the earliest date on which the Collection may be auctioned is October 2037. Prior to that date, discretion was extended to the Trustee to consider only the following offers: 1) those to purchase of all items of a particular sport; and 2) those to purchase of the entire Collection. The minimum sale prices were directed by Dr. Muchinsky and determined based on his assessment of what the Collection will be worth in 2037. He was optimistic about its future value, and as such did not expect any of the Collection to be sold prior to the date set for the auction. Neither does the Trustee.
Thank you Andy. I was not aware of this.

Just curious, how does everyone display their pins? I have 3 display frames that I bought from Hobby Lobby which I filled up very quickly.

Not too thrilling, but always glad to add a Giants pin I'd never seen before.

I have been able to locate 16 of these Baseball Leader Pins from the 1930s. Hake and Steckler only listed 13 in their guide and I have not seen another checklist. Just wondering if anyone has a different one or has seen one not here. In case you can’t make out what’s in the photo, here’s a list:

Most Games Won in Season 116 Cubs in 1906
Batting .349 C. J. Hafey 1931
Batting .367 D. Alexander 1932
Pitching ERA 2.37 Lon Warneke Chicago Cubs 1932
Batting .398 Frank J. O’Doul Philadelphia 1929
Batting .368 Frank J. O’Doul Philadelphia 1932
Longest Game Played 26 Innings Boston vs. Brooklyn
Batting .381 A.H. Simmons Philadelphia 1930
Batting .390 A.H. Simmons Philadelphia 1931
Stolen Bases Max Carey Pitts Led League 10 Years
Most Shut Games Season Grover Alexander 16 Games 1916
Most Home Runs Season Babe Ruth 60 in 1927
Batting .401 Wm. H. Terry New York 1930
Highest Percentage Batter Rogers Hornsby .424
Batting .369 L.A. Fonseca Cleveland 1931
Pitching Bob Grove ERA 2.94 1932

I picked this one up today at the PNC Hunt Auction stand. I flew in for the game. It serves as a nice momento from my first opening day at PNC. The game made me realize that I am definitely a Left Coast guy...Lordy was it cold! I also learned that the Bucs look worse than I feared. It's going to be a long year.

They can’t be any worse than the Giants.

I purchased this on ebay last week. Does anyone know what set this is from? It looks similar to the 1978-81 Sports Photo Association Buttons but those are 3" buttons and this is smaller. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.

Its just a cheap knockoff from the same 3" set. Really worth nothing. Baffles me why someone would want to repro this pin. The 3" pin is probably only worth 3-4 dollars at best.....

I have seen them pop up on eBay in just the last couple of years and they are always described as being a 1982 TCMA issue. There a couple of listings currently on eBay describing them that way. The son of the original owner of TCMA that is a member here may have some information on them. I have the Buckner pin because I am a Cubs collector, I believe he is the only Cub in the set although I don't know the complete checklist.

Default '53WS Press Pin with cardboard back

Hi everyone

Here's a few favorites of mine.

I like the 53WS pin since it has the cardboard back - I've rarely seen this.



The Spalding Trophy Pin is gold plated - not sure of the date?



This ribbon pin - have no idea what/when - perhaps early 1900s by design? I'm partial to the pin design.

I've gotta agree with Cliff on this. Not knockoffs, I don't think. I have the Chili Davis (top row, second from right). I have never seen a larger pin of this particular head shot.

A buddy of mine found this 6" pin of Will Clark for me. He got it at the Alameda swap meet which is where he found his, years ago. These are the only two I've ever seen. He also has a 6 incher of the Kevin Mitchell pin shown. Clark is dated 1989; Mitchell is probably from 1988.

For me - this stick pin was unusual from the PM10 pins I pick up from time to time.

I had taken some time away from the hobby recently, but jumped right back in as I started to finally pick up some Yankees pinbacks. It started with a Reggie Jackson & then I added more quickly. Now I'm on the hunt for more and have zeroed in on a couple that I hope to add to the growing collection.

Hi All,

I picked up this lot for just under the 1000 starting price. I bought it mainly for this Pierce but needed a few others as well. I was honestly amazed at the condition of the tougher ones in the group. I've been moving the dupes through Ebay as well as a few privately. On pace for getting back most of the purchase price.

Thanks,
Andy

They ain't no Billy Pierce, but I'm happy to add these to my Giants collection. I was aware of Road Warrior but you don't see it often. The other button, neither I or my fellow Giants collectors had ever seen. Even though it didn't end well, 1997 was a special year.

I am elated to add this very rare pin to my Cubs collection. It is definitely from the 1906 to 1908 range. Has some damage to the side but you can’t be picky on one this old.

Thanks. I love them also. I believe I have 10 of them now.

Who knows! That’s what makes it fun. Hadn’t found anything of note in months, then find these two items at the same time. Go figure.

I believe I found a 2 1/4 inch 1969(?) MLB pin that hasn't been mentioned before, that I am aware of anyway. I know the ones that have been verified are Tony Taylor, Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Rod Carew, Tony Oliva, and Harmon Killebrew. I found this Deron Johnson on Worthpoint that sold on eBay in February, 2017. The seller mentions in the listing that the pin is two inches, and what I believe is the proof is that the MLB emblem on the left that shows the batter swinging doesn't have the red border line going all the way around it like it does on all of the regular 3 1/2 inch pins. I am pretty sure that all of the small pins are missing the red line, I noticed it on the 2 1/4 inch Ernie Banks that I have and the 2 1/4 inch Willie McCovey that ooo-ribay has shown scans of. The first scan of the MLB emblem with no red line is the Johnson, the second scan of the MLB emblem with the red line is from a 3 1/2 normal sized pin. I apologize if the Johnson has been mentioned before, I don't follow the memorabilia section on a full time basis.

Default Super Bowl II pin

Just picked it up this morning. One of my better flea market finds in a while.

Oh great! I never knew Beckert and Hundley were made in the small size. Now I have to be on the lookout for those too. So to my knowledge, Cubs in the mini version are Banks, Santo, Berkert and Hundley. Any others?

This is certainly one of the most perplexing sets of pins ever made. I wish someone had kept records of what was actually made.
