I've been a fairly active collector of Dodger pins for quite sometime. So, I like to think that I've, at least, seen most modern day issues. Imagine my surprise when I saw this group of circa 1960's player pins at the recent MEARS Auction.
These pins measure 3 1/2 inches in diameter, have a red background with a black & white player photo surrounded by a white border near the top of the pin. On the bottom the players name is in bold white letters. All of these pins retain their original cardboard backs. I have 2 other very similar pins of Sandy Koufax and Maury Wills, but they have color photos instead of black & white pictures.
