Entering the 1914 season, the Boston Braves had no fantasies of a World Series Championship. Heck, they were just hoping to end the season with more wins than losses, something they hadn't seen since 1902 when they were called the Beaneaters. It wasn't looking very promising as the 1914 squad started the year 3-16 and found themselves 15 games back on July 4th. But then these perennial losers went on a winning streak unmatched in major league history, posting a 68-19 record for the rest of the season, taking the National League pennant by 10.5 games, and sweeping Connie Mack's Philadelphia A's in the World Series. Yup, these 1914 "Miracle" Braves were such an odd sensation in their hometown that they caught the attention of Nuff Ced McGreevey and the Royal Rooters, an army of fanatical fans that would dance, play music and harass fans of the opposing team at Red Sox games, but turned their attention to the Braves when they were on their way to a title. The featured 2 1/4" pin is a rare relic from that magical season, touting the "Boston Braves Champions 1914" on the pin with a ribbon that reads "Royal Rooters 1914" and an ornate gold top. While the ribbon s eroded almost all the way through, making it very delicate, it should be noted that this is one of the rarest pin back in the baseball genre as one of just 3 known to have survived. A tremendous piece that aptly commemorates a true "miracle" team!
