Yeah... I do remember how much he loved that one. Maybe he finally reeled one in, wherever he is now (see attached sign below!)

Default 1990 Giants Pins Dravecky miracle comeback

Another re-discovery during the quarantine lock-down. 1990 Giants pins along with gas station "header" card promoting the pins and commemorating Dave Dravecky's amazing comeback. The two pins shown are "I've got a Giant Attitude" and "The Miracle - Dravecky". Not certain how many pins were in the promotion.

I also posted this in the advertising signs thread, but since it's "pin" related, I'll add it here as well. Another Union Oil window display for Dodger's 100th anniversary Pin give-away. I also had the opportunity to have several Dodger's sign next to pins most closely associated with their tenure. Sadly, there's a fading Sandy Koufax between the two lower left pins. Should have brought a new sharpie. The reverse has a Wes Parker signature. Not sure why I had him sign it there.

Thanks Hank. I had forgotten I had it since there are very few Southern California shows anymore and no opportunity to get signatures. I can't even remember getting players like John Roseboro, Pee Wee and Erskine to sign it. But glad I did.

I know the 1978-198? numbered pins have virtually no respect and the later ones are very cheaply made, but many of them are incredibly rare and impossible to find. Being a Cubs collector, ever since learning of the existence of this 1982-83 Fergie Jenkins numbered pin five years ago or so I have kept an eye out for it but no luck. Recently a seller on eBay put up his Cubs pin collection that he got from Wrigley Field vendors as a kid in the early 80's for a hefty price, I offered him a ridiculous sum for just the Jenkins pin and thankfully he accepted.

I was fortunate to pick up this early 1950s Ralph Kiner Pin for a very affordable price. Always liked it, given the cool colors and the fact that virtually all other offerings at the time were just Black & White.

The fact that Kiner is a Hall of Famer makes it just that more special...

I totally get where you’re coming from!

P.S. even though I’m not a Cubs collector, I’d love to see a link to the whole collection.

It won't be anytime soon, but I could certainly take pics of each subset and post them.

The only interesting ones in it were the Jenkins pin and a Santo pin, the rest were commonly found 80's pins.

I am thrilled to finally land this one. I have no idea why it took so long.

Mark, I might have been the underbidder on the Kiner pin. I looked it up, and it was made just before Kiner held out for a bigger contact. Instead of giving it to him, the Pirates traded him to the Cubs, along with the pins they just made. I understand the pins didn't sell very well because Kiner wasn't wearing a Cubs jersey, but they couldn't have made too many, because if they did, they'd be easier to find. I'm still looking for one ...

Good info... thanks Chris.

There are a couple of them on eBay right now. Priced higher, but with a "Best Offer" option. It may be tough to find another for the relatively low price I paid. If it makes you feel any better, my snipe was 2 1/2 times the final sale price.

Hey guys - quick question re: storage.

I've looked and looked - but, am unable to find 2-piece plastic cases that could house 3'' or 3.5'' pinbacks.

Does anyone have a vendor they work with?
And/or what do you use to store your larger pieces (aside from chipboard boxes)?

Thanks in advance!

Great thread. I've gotten hooked on pinbacks (see what I did there) after picking up my first 2 recently.

I'm waiting on a few Sweet Caporal pins to be delivered too.

I'm in learning mode at the moment. I'll only dabble here and there while I build up some knowledge about the market. Other than net54 and Paul Muchinsy's book are there pinback websites that you guys recommend?
