Food-Issue Friday: 1910 Morton's Pennant Winner Bread Tigers

   Considered one of the rarest advertising pin sets of its era, the 1910 Mortons Pennant Winner Bread Tiger's Pin set was manufactured by Whitehead & Hoag of Newark, NJ, and was issued to celebrate the Tiger's third straight American League Pennant. Measuring 1.25 inches in diameter and feature vibrant colors, the set includes Hall of Famers Ty Cobb and Sam Crawford.

  I have no idea why the usually manacing-looking Ty Cobb is smiling in the photo on his pin, but I have a good idea about Verlander. Last night, the reigning AL MVP and Cy Young winner led his team to its second straight ALCS. Well, he has been linked to Kate Upton. That would put a smile on his face.

  1. That Cobb advertising pin is sweet!

    Verlander is a beast! After watching him take down my favorite team like they were minor leaguers, I might just start collecting the guy.
