Original 1989 Baseball Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony Press Pin - Beautiful For SaleVery Rare, original and stunningly beautiful, 1989 Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Press Pin issued in very limited numbers to Members of the Press and Honored Guests attending the Induction of Johnny Bench, Carl Yastrzemski, umpire Al Barlick and St. Louis Cardinals Manager Red Schoendienst at Cooperstown, New York.
We believe that Baseball Press Pins from the World Series, All Star Games and (especially) Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies are likely THE most undervalued as well as among the most beautiful Sports Collectibles in the field. These exceptionally high quality Pins were produced in VERY small numbers by the same jewelry companies that produced World Series Rings (Dieges & Clust, Jostens, Balfour, etc) and, in the case of the Hall of Fame Press Pins, each pin is individually numbered. These Pins were not available to the general public and are only given to members of the working press and honored guests at the landmark events in Baseball History. I consider myself among THE most avid baseball fans and a connoisseur of Baseball Memorabilia - the only collection I have is an extensive collection of Baseball Press Pins (augmented by my 1931 St. Louis Cardinals World’s Series Ring) which I cherish.
While Baseball Cards of the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s, which were produced in huge numbers and available for purchase at a penny apiece, sell for thousands of dollars, many of these beautiful jewelry quality Press Pins, most manufactured in VERY small numbers and unavailable to the general public, can still be had for prices as low as $70 to $250!! Sometimes there is no figuring the whims of the collector’s market.
This beautiful and very rare, 1989 Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Pin measures approx. 1 1/4” by 1" and features a brilliant, gold plated surface with outstanding red and blue enameling. These Press Pins were produced in two formats - a post and clutch pin back version and a Charm version - and the example offered here is the post and clutch version. The Pin is signed on the back by the manufacturer - Balfour - and etched with its unique identification number “463”.
This very rare and very beautiful, 1989 Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Press Pin is in mint, original condition.
A very rare and very beautiful, 1989 Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Press Pin and a fantastic addition to any collection!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
