BACKGROUND INFORMATION

- Yellow Basepath - Yellow Basepath Pins - PM15 Yellow Base Path

I remember so clearly as a young boy purchasing these yellow basepath pins from a gumball machine. For me the machine was at Brandon's Grocery. This was located on the south side of Fergus Falls, Minnesota. The year would have been 1956. I was 11 years old. I remember that I would get money from my mother and use it to buy the gumballs and the yellow basepath pins would also come out of the machine. At one time I had about thirty of these that I had stored in my dresser for about forty years. I have since sold many of these through eBay. But, my interest still remains high as they bring back such good childhood memories.

This is a 32 pin set and the pins are 7/8" in diameter. According to the "Complete Guide to Baseball Memorabilia" by Mark K. Larson, there are two players who have their names misspelled. These players are Ted Kluszewski and Eddie Mathews.

I have made the following generic checklist. I used a Mac and the program was Graphic Converter. If you want to use it just click on it and drag it to your desktop. Then you can open it in Graphic Converter and add your information. If you want to see mine you can click here.

NOTE: There is a VERY NEAT checklist for 1956 Yellow Basepath Pins at Open Checklist.com.

And, even more information is available at Keyman Collectibles website.

Also, if you would want me to add your checklist to this website, just complete the table, name it and email it to me using the link below.

NOTE - I'm sure there are ways to do this better. If you want work one up and send it to me. Thanks, Jim R.
