On October 13, 1960, the Pittsburgh Pirates completed one of the most unlikely upsets in World Series history. It was a classic tense Game 7 marked by heroics, lead changes and a stunning home run from "Maz." After six games the heavily favored New York Yankees had compiled impressive Fall Classic numbers: .340 team batting average 78 hits and 46 runs to the Pirates 17. Yet the opportunistic Pirates had the series even at three wins apiece. In Game 7, the Pirates stormed to an early 4-0 lead but waves of scoring from both clubs had the game knotted at nine in the bottom of the ninth. Then 24-year-old Bill Mazeroski known more for his glove than his bat approached the plate and launched the first World Series-ending home run in Major League history setting off a delirious celebration that reverberated from Forbes Field across Pittsburgh and through the annals of all-time sports achievements.

Offered here is a stunning 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates World Series Tie Clip. The tie clip features a depiction of a pirate in the center atop a smaller baseball. Written around the center on a baseball-diamond shaped white surface is “1960” and “World Champions.” On the bottom of the tie clip reads “Pirates” with a black background. “Jostens” is stamped on the rear side of the clip denoting the manufacturer. The tie clip is in good condition with a fully functional clip.
