I suspected as much but took a chance. The poorly cropped photo has that look as well. UPDATED I have learned that both of these pins are likely fantasy pieces. I'm sharing to assist others in avoiding the same mistake,

As long as you didnít pay too much. They DO have some age but not sure how much.

I actually contacted the seller and exchanged the black and one for a pin I was more knowledgeable about. I kept the color (Dexter press image) pin. I consider it to be a $30 lesson regarding staying in my own lane.

Wow. These are wonderful. Live the connection to Japan

Hi, I don't usually collect pins but recently was offered this one. I have no idea if this is reproduced or not. It's in really great shape which makes me wonder. Anyone have any idea? Thanks!

Itís not a repro, but there are at least 3 on ebay, right now, for $2-5.

Hank hit #500 on 7/14/68. Iím guessing they made enough pins to pass out to a possible capacity crowd on 8/23/68.

I picked up a few Giants pins. Not too thrilling but I'm always happy to add some I don't have.

Top row L to R: Casual Day 1993; McCutchen bobblehead, worn by ushers for a few days this year; Orange and Black Attack 2012.

Bottom row: There were four of these (the other commemorates Mays' 4HR day). They were free with the SF Chronicle and scorecard, sold outside the stadium for a short period of time in the Giants' 50th year in SF (2008). Being free, you would think they'd be easy to find, but they aren't.
