Warren Spahn Tribute Pin

Warren Spahn promotional pin

Over the years, pins were issued to honor specific players. The September 17, 1963, Milwaukee Braves game at County Stadium was declared a tribute to Warren Spahn; President John F. Kennedy called in to congratulate Spahn.

A 1964 pin welcomed Yogi Berra as the new manager of the New York Yankees. In 1961, fans rooting for Mickey Mantle in the duel with Roger Maris to break Babe Ruth's season homer record sported "I'm for Mantle" pins.
