I call these "parking lot pins." They were sold, illegally, in the parking lot of Candlestick Park during the Humm Baby years; late 1980s. They were probably a buck apiece, at the time. The bottom left is a new pickup. They are "out there," but not in great numbers. There are a few more I'm looking for.

Default Question for Rob (ooo-ribay)

Rob - in your experience have you found the 1.75 inch version of this Giants crossed bats style pin to be more difficult to find then the smaller 1.25 inch version?

I think it is, Mike. I had never given it much thought, but I have a picture document of my Giants “crossed bat” pins and, at the time I created the doc, I was still missing the 1.75” blue border.

That said, I feel much better about the smaller font “GIANTS” on the right. The other was presented as vintage, but I’m not so sure...

I think both of yours are very legitimate. I have many crossed bats pins with slightly different fonts presumably from different printing runs. Took me a while to find the larger version of this pin so I was just curious if you had found that to be true. Probably just didn’t make as many of these as the others.
