Description



Back for a second straight World Series and a fifth October showdown in 13 years, the Brooklyn Dodgers unfortunately drew the Yankees as an opponent for the fifth time. This celluloid pin was issued while hope still remained in Flatbush. Measuring 3-1/2” in diameter, the vintage souvenir features a black-and-white team photo with “Brooklyn Dodgers” and “National League Champions” flanking above and below, respectively. On the reverse, the pinback remains and there are minor abrasions and areas of rust. Of note is the front, where a bats-and-ball design under “Brooklyn Dodgers” appears where “1953” appears on other examples. This version seems to be much less common!
