Description: Rare 1922 New York Giants and Yankees World Series press pin. Desirable original pin remains in exceptional overall condition with fully intact blue and white enameled portions and little to no mentionable wear. Marked "Whitehead & Hoag, Newark N.J." on the back. In contrast to nearly every other year in which each team issued their own pin, both the Giants and Yankees utilized the same design in 1922 as they shared a home ballpark. A noted rarity with few examples having surfaced and this being the first we can recall handling. Includes letter of provenance from the Branca Family: EX/MT-NM
Estimated Price Range: ($4,000-$6,000)
