1961-69 Crane's Pins
The Crane's Potato Chip Pins were distributed by Crane's throughout the 1960's. The pins have very colorful fronts comprised of team names and logos, and are stamped on the back with the logo of Crane's Potato Chips in Decatur, Illinois. The year these pins were issued can be determined by looking on the backs in some cases.
These pins have become more popular in recent years, partly due to the fact that they include past teams such as the Washington Nationals and the Houston Colt .45s.
