1910 PE1 Mascot Gum Pins (Rochester) Overview
The Diamond Mascot Gum pins are similar to other same-type products of the era. The pins feature a picture of a player on the front with his name. The back contains the following advertisement for Diamond Gum:
“Get a collection of ball player’s buttons free with Diamond Gum.”
While similar to the PE2 Diamond Gum Pins, these are slightly different. The pins were only a regional issue as they featured the minor league Rochester baseball team instead of major league players. In addition, they have an empty blue painted border around the edges. The PE2 pins have the phrase, “Free with Diamond Gum.”
There is no doubt that the PE2 set has less appeal, but the PE1 Rochester pins are also far more rare.
