Description

Known for their series of advertising pins of prominent political and theater personalities, Whitehead & Hoag issued a comprehensive baseball series in 1898. The presented 1-1/4 sepia-toned pin features a cameo image of Patsy Donovan, outfielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The pin is in (EX) condition and has Donovans name and team designation around the image. The paper advertising insert located on the reverse of the pin is in excellent condition. These pins tend to darken over time, but this example is quite clean and displays a sharp image.
