Rare 1915-1919 Babe Ruth Boston Red Sox Jordan Marsh Pin
A RARE, Vintage 1910's advertising pinback issued by the Jordan Marsh department store of Boston, MA featuring a young depiction of Babe Ruth as a member of the Boston Red Sox. Seldom seen pin measuring 1" in diameter with original manufacturer's paper backing which reads Pilgrim Badge & Specialty Co. which was down the block of the massive Jordan Marsh store on Washington Street in old Boston almost a century ago. Pin is in very good condition with even toning all around. Image shows a youthful Ruth with his Red Sox cap and is from the time when his star was on the rise in the American League as one of the game's best left-handed pitchers. The construction of the pin is similar to the political pins made for political campaigns during that period. Along with the pin is an attractive 1910's postcard which shows the Jordan Marsh department store along Washington Street and captures the city during Ruth's era. Unlike the later-issued Quaker Oaks and PM10 Ruth pins, this is an extremely tough piece in a league of its own when it comes to rarity.
