“Pin-Up” of the Week: 1994 Williamsport Sun Gazette Little League World Series Champions Pin

Starting in 2004, the Williamsport Sun-Gazette began to issue Little League pins.  Between 2004 and 2015 they have made about (54) or (55) different pins in all.  A few years ago they began to issue handy guides to their pins.  They usually issue a new guide around the time of the Little League World Series.  Inside each guide you’ll find highly detailed descriptions about every pin they’ve made.  At around (50) pages long, its an excellent resource.

We live in an age where nothing isn’t faked or made up.  Little League pins aren’t immune to any of that.  Take a look at this pin for instance.  It looks like a simple little Williamsport Sun-Gazette pin celebrating Venezuela winning the 1994 Little League World Series.  The problem is that the Williamsport Sun-Gazette never made this pin.  Its a knockoff made to look like they did.  I’m not 100% sure when it was made.  A good guess would be 1994, which would make it ten years older than any authentic Sun-Gazette pin.
