Gorgeous photo composite pinback, perhaps the most desirable 1920s baseball pinback: a rare and classic pin depicting the NL Champion Chicago Cubs.  Featuring Hall of Famers Kiki Cuyler, Hack Wilson, Bill Veeck, Joe McCarthy, Rogers Hornsby and Gabby Hartnett, this extraordinary piece measures 3 inches in diameter.  Only a few of this pinback are known to exist, and speculation is that the reason why is because only a very small quantity were actually manufactured.  The manufacturer is identified on the edge of the pin as Adcraft Mfg. Co., Chicago.  

In terms of condition, we would describe the piece as EX-MT to NM.  Some minor surface abrasions can be seen under magnification on the front, with some very minor oxidation on the reverse.  Otherwise, a tremendous piece, one of the most important baseball pinbacks.
