    Description

    1924 Kansas Jayhawks Championship Pin. The oldest team in the history of collegiate basketball, the Kansas Jayhawks began in 1898 and have amassed a record of 2,101-812 over the years. This offered piece is but a sampling of their success from early on in their history. From the 1924 season, the pin celebrates the 15-1 record and Missouri Valley conference championship that came with it. The pin is attached to a blue 1x1.25" ribbon, at the end of which is a basketball slightly smaller than 0.75" in diameter. On the basketball in purple ink is inscribed "MO Valley Champions - Won 15 Lost 1 - Percent .938 - 1924." On the back of the basketball is etched "H. Heckert - C." Pin mechanism works fine, ribbon shows some fraying near the bottom and the basketball charm is a pleasing EX/MT or better. Measures just over two inches from top to bottom. A superb example of vintage memorabilia from one of the most popular teams in college basketball history.
