    1996 MLB Pins

    Anyone know anything about these? It is a set listed on Beckett and Iím trying to find the Girardi but canít actually find these for any player or even see what they look like! Google isnít helpful and didnít find anything searching this forum.

    Is this another white whale like the 98 pacific online winners?

    Looks like 37 cards and the checklist seems very random. I am surprised none of the other player/team collectors have run into issues fulfilling holes from this set. I don't actually know what these look like at all.

    Anyone else have any guidance on these?

    Here is what I believe are the 1996 MLB Pins
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-York-Ya...8/183125112870

    Any of the Jeter guys can back me up or chime in. These are often (mis)listed as buttons and aren't that rare from what I have seen.

    Thanks, this is helpful though it seems ridiculous that these are listed on Beckett. Can someone confirm? Looks like what you posted is a 98. Not sure if they made these multiple years.

    Beckett has this to say about the set:

    "This set consists of 37 pins that measure approximately 2 15/16" each in diameter and features color photos of Major League Baseball players. The pins are unnumbered and checklisted below in alphabetical order. Pins were only made for teams which participated in the championship series: Atlanta Braves, Baltimore Orioles, St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees."

    That looks correct. Here are two other examples of the same Jeter button.

    The Bernie Williams and John Wetteland Pin/Buttons can be seen here.
