Having looked at the fantastic pinbacks in this auction, I have the following two questions for Hake's:

(1) Why does Hake's NOT show pics of the backs of the pinbacks? I am shocked that the "consignor's best choice" would not do this. The only major sports auction house that I am aware of that often doesn't "bother" to do this is Hunt, and Hunt is often criticized for this.

(2) How was it determined that the WaJo pinback in Lot #723 is from 1924, inasmuch as WaJo's Senators also won the A.L. pennant in 1925? Adding an online pic of the back of this pinback will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Hake's, for your responses.
Seeking very scarce/rare cards for my Sam Rice master collection, e.g., D350-2, E210-2, W504, & Queen City Cigar. Also T216 Kotton "NGO" card of Hugh Jennings. Also 1917 Merchants Bakery of WaJo.

Hi Val,

In our 53 years of experience, and having literally offered hundreds of thousands of buttons, photos of backs have, with rare exception, not been shown. Neither bidders nor consignors have had any real issue with this, and anytime a back photo was requested we happily supplied them. We will certainly do this for you now with item #723 and moving forward, we will address this issue more.

As for the date of #723, we are going with the extensive research of Dr. Paul M. Muchinsky.

Any inquires, comments or questions can be sent directly to and we will answer all ASAP.
