The 1969 World Series was played between the New York Mets and the Baltimore Orioles, with the Mets prevailing in five games to accomplish one of the greatest upsets in Series history, as that particular Orioles squad was considered to be one of the finest ever (and still is by some baseball pundits).
This Balfour 1969 Baltimore Orioles Press Pin / Tie Clip was given to members of the press to gain entry into restricted areas and as keepsakes. This is not a standard push pin back. Some of the pins were made into tie clips and cuff links. This has the tie clip backing.
