Description

Presented is a circular fourteen-karat gold pass issued to the Baseball Commissioner, Kensaw Landis, in 1925 by the Philadelphia Phillies. This magnificent pendant is in spectacular condition and was kept well preserved by Landis' descendants. The obverse of the piece features an image of Philadelphia's founding father, William Penn, throwing a pitch with an opulently engraved baseball scene as the backdrop. A baby-blue enamel ring surrounds the perimeter with lettering that reads, "Philadelphia National League Base Ball Club.". The reverse is engraved, "National League P.B.B., Golden Jubilee, 1925, Admit Hon. K.M. Landis, #37.". There is a maker's mark beneath the Landis inscription, but it is partly obscured and illegible. This unparalleled beauty will draw serious interest from all collectors who understand that paramount single pieces like this are not only beautiful but also a great investment.
