Description

    1929 New York Giants Silver Season Pass Issued to Col. Jacob Ruppert. Beginning as an office boy at Jacob Ruppert's brewery in 1911, Fred Linder became the manifestation of the American Dream as his hard work over the decades saw him climb the ranks of both of the Colonel's main business enterprises. Beer and baseball served Linder very well, as he reached top executive positions in both Ruppert's brewery and the front office of the New York Yankees, where he served as the team treasurer. His affiliation with the latter spawned the fabulous collection of press pins/silver passes offered in this Sunday Internet Sports auction, and recount a lifetime of baseball memories from the most glorious days the Bronx has ever seen.

    A winking clown directs "Col. Jacob Ruppert and Party" toward the Polo Grounds grandstands on the face of this silver pass issued for just that purpose. This highly collectible keepsake was issued to the newly elected Hall of Famer, whose name is engraved on verso along with serial number "10." Maker's mark, "Lambert Bros, NY, Sterling," is at bottom verso. EX-MT condition exhibited throughout.
