The discovery of a Ruth pin in recent years drew quite a bit of attention. Some have even theorized that it may not be authentic and, to date, it is the only one to have ever been discovered.
While most sports collectors are interested in these pins for the baseball issues, non-sports figures, such as ex-presidents, were also included in the set.
