Default College football pinback expertise wanted!

Hi all,

I have just aquired this pinback that celebrates the 1937 University of Colorado football team that played in the 2nd annual Cotton Bowl on New Year's Day, 1938.

I am certain that the pin is authentic based on the manufacturer, Colorado Badge and Novelty Co., as well as the fact that Colorado was not even victorious in the Cotton Bowl, losing to the Rice Owls by a score of 28-14. However, I am curious as to how scarce early bowl pins would be? There were only five bowl games that teams could participate in during the 1937-38 college football season and playing in one and accepting an invitation was a great accomplishment for any school of the day.

In regards to the actual pin, I have seen only one other similar pin, commemorating CU Band Day in 1940. This was also produced by the Colorado Badge and Novelty Co.

I feel like pins are not a desirable item when it comes to college football memorbilia and wanted to get some other opinions on this piece!

Thanks and stay safe!
