Joe McCarthy Our National Game Pin   

New York Yankees..... Very Rare and Authentic 1930s Joe McCarthy HOF 1967, "Our National Game" Pinback of Hall Of Fame Yankees Manager on its original card. These 7/8” pins that were catalogued by the ACC (American Card Catalog) with a designation of “PM8” were issued 70-years ago featuring 30 of the game’s top stars. There was a find of these some twenty plus years ago and even then, high grade examples were tough because of the way they were manufactured (thru the lithograph process where the inks were printed directly on the metal tin making them highly susceptible to scratches).Joe McCarthy is most renowned for his leadership of the "Bronx Bombers" teams of the New York Yankees from 1931 to 1946. The first manager to win pennants with both National and American League teams, he won nine league titles overall and seven World Series championships – a record tied only by Casey Stengel – and his career winning percentages in both the regular season (.615) and postseason (.698, all in the Series) are the highest in major league history. His 2125 career victories rank eighth all-time in major league history for managerial wins, and he ranks first all-time for the Yankees with 1460 wins.
