Description

Offered is an impressive 1958 New York Yankees World Series prototype press pin. This Balfour creation was one of many candidates for the press pin, but ultimately lost out to the diamond-shaped design. This extremely scarce relic is equipped with the original fastener and is free of any significant flaws. It is important to note this memorabilia should not be confused with a phantom pin. Such pins were produced for teams that did not gain entrance into the World Series and tend to be much more common than the offered prototype.
