Default 1917 Dieges & Clust Pittsburg Press Medal with Wagner Image

I am curious if anyone can tell me about this 1917 Dieges & Clust Pittsburg Press gold-filled medal that pretty clearly has a picture of Honus Wagner on it. The back says church league. I can't find this exact medal anywhere, though I have found other Pittsburg Press medals and many other by Dieges & Clust. I have found the cool Wagner church league trophies like this one:

I am looking for any background info on the league, medals with Wagner images (was this somehow related to his sporting good line?), etc.

Thanks!

Despite the fact that they're antique, I've seen a number of these types of medals over the years with the same/similar image used. There's a Pittsburgh church league medal for sale on eBay currently... Its also by Dieges & Clust (No, its not mine)
I can't add more regarding any Wagner connection though.

Here are some others that have sold in the past, with many being rather similar to yours...

Thanks for the input guys. I never thought this was hugely valuable but I am a bit surprised that one hasn't caught my eye before with the Wagner image on it.

Default 2 Wagner or not 2 Wagner?

Someone told me that this pic I have is Honus and Albert.
It was super random....but the more I look at it......I think Mr. Random might be on to something....but....
. *Sigh*
I dunno.
Anyone who can tell me how to get such a thing authentication or appraisal or something? The lack of a signature is turning out to be a roadblock.
Any info and knowledgeable opinions will be super appreciated!
Thx - KELLI
