Off topic - but, Al - what did you use as a backer on that? It doesn’t look like foam?

Rob, that Lefty O’Doul variation goes to the top of my wantlist. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen one; yours is beautiful

Hi Aaron,
No its not foam ,to thick to fit in the 25 count snap case. I found that if you just use a thin piece of cardboard cut to size stick the pin thru it it works well. I find the white cardboard the the comic book backer boards uses works well! Makes it look better.....

Thanks, much Al - I appreciate the response.

I 'made'/cut foam inserts for my 2.5" pins and smaller.

Bought cases for my 3"+, and am looking for some other options.
I'm assuming you use comic backers on those too?

Anyone have an alternative they use?

Default Cases

Hi Aaron,

Years ago I used to attend the political collector shows. Tom French displayed literally hundreds of buttons in foam backed holders that he sells on his website. They looked really great on display. Here's his link with a tab on the front page to click on. https://usamericana.com/

Default Holders

Hi Aaron,

Just a little heads up about some negatives. The holders that seem to be perfect for 3 1/2" pins are actually too tight. with the foam and the limited area side to side, you kind of end up "forcing" the lid down. Maybe he has a larger size that may work better. Also, because the lid actually touches the buttons, I wouldn't recommend these for litho's only celluloid. I didn't want the lids directly on the litho paint. It's probably not as much of an issue with the smaller lithos because the lids barely touch. Anyway, I should have taken a picture of his display back in the day because it was the nicest in the room.

Default Mauch

Hi Guy,

I don't know why he's on my want list but I always thought there was a Gene Mauch in this 69' set as there is in the 70' set. I don't know why it's on there but just wondering if you're pretty sure he's not included? I only need 2 from the 70's set.

I gotta say, I have never quite understood that red, white and blue Expos logo. Can anyone explain what the designer was “going for”? Maybe you have to be French to understand.....

The logo is actually an "elb" (red "e", white "l", blue "b"). It stands for Expos League Baseball, and together it forms an "M" for Montreal. Link below...

As for the colors, it is explained in the attached pic. You just can't make this sh*t up!

Thank you , Mark. I’m glad to know I wasn’t the only one confused by that atrocious logo. However, if I read what’s in the link correctly, the logo combines an e-M-b and not an e-l-b. It’s pretty bad, no matter what they were going for.

Perhaps you're right... I read a few different articles with conflicting info, so who knows. I suppose if you're going to permanently name your franchise after a World's Fair (Expo '67 in Montreal) you deserve some criticism.

Who even remembers Expo '67 anyway? Professional teams really should not be named after temporary events. I am probably biased because as a kid, I was as much a Tony Perez fan as I was a Reds fan. When they traded Perez to Montreal after the 1976 season, it was a tough pill to swallow. I could not stand seeing him go from the Reds' classy and timeless uniforms to those goofy looking threads that the Expos called a uniform.

Dumb logo and dumber name. Just my dumb opinion.

I saw your 1971 set , There was no Gene Mauch in that set , you are missing just the Mach Jones and Dan Mcginn, The Mcginn is nearly impossible to find

Thanks, Andy - I think the 4"x4" solves the 3"/3.5" issue for me better than I expected (so, they shouldn't be too snug)

Can't tell you how much I appreciate the feedback/help.

That’s a great set. I’m glad I’m not trying to complete one.....although I totally know what it’s like to be missing “that one guy.”

So many great pins here -- it's been a lot of fun to see all the photos.

It's been quite awhile since I contributed to this thread -- I think this are new additions since my last post.

That Goldpanners button is neat. Champions of the NBC tournament held in Wichita, Kansas.

Dave Winfield is on that pin as a member of the Goldpanners team.

Hank I don't know much about those three pins -- I did purchase them together, and really like their look.

I'm thinking perhaps an intra-company employee contest of some kind.
