Surprisingly scarce and desirable, these portrait pencil clips were produced as part of a multi-year series at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium from 1948-1952. This white variety can specifically be pinpointed to 1950—and the Paige example has historically been quite rare, with most of his surviving clips dating from 1949. The "St. Louis Browns / Satchel Paige" button attachments measure 3/4" in diameter, and overall condition is fresh NM. An accompanying 1974 TCMA blank-backed card (3-1/2 x 5-1/2", EX-MT) features Satch's blue ballpoint "8-9" signature. Auction LOA from JSA.
