Description



The third franchise to go by the name Washington Senators is recalled with this collection of (11) 1960s baseball pins. Following in the footsteps of futility established by an 1890s NL franchise and the equally woeful 1901-1960 AL Senators, the 1961-1971 franchise was also a dogged doormat of a team that managed to loose an average of ninety games per season during its days in DC. Matching the team's eleven year tenure in the Nation's Capital, these (11) pins are similarly formatted with a pitcher in motion over the Capitol Building. Sizes range from 3/4" to 6" in diameter, with (2) at the large end, (1) at 3" and the balance varying up to 2-1/4". Styling also varies, with (2) fashioned as keychains, (1) with a ribbon, (1) with a bat & ball charms, (1) with ribbon and ball & glove charms and the other (6) as pins only, including the (2) 6" pieces. Generally this group is very handsome with a grade range of (EX to NM-MT). Prize pieces are a 3" pin with a "Good Luck, Ted" slogan referring to Ted Williams term as manager and a 1-1/2" brass keychain with red and blue enamel baseball diamond at center.
