Default What the (bleep) are these?

Picked up a collection with a mix of authentic and reprint vintage stuff, these were in that group. They seem way to shiny/new-ish to be prewar.... What are these and value? Thanks!!!!! Pat

I would call them pencil-toppers.

I was going to say that I have never seen ones of these featuring Cobb or Wagner. Thanks for IDing these as fantasy pieces.

Yep; you put them on pencils, so you can clip them to your shirt pocket.

Patrick, I am far from being very knowledgeable about these, but I do know that there are "legitimate" vintage pencil clips that were produced for Cleveland Indians players in the late 1940's and early 1950's - here's the link to some of them on eBay:

It is healthy to be suspicious of unknown Ruth Wagner or Cobb items, especially.
