We’re a little uncertain as to why the caption on this souvenir pin is pluralized, but the long-time 2nd baseman for the Sox was affectionately known by admirers as the “Mighty Mite.” There are few clues as to the precise vintage of this piece, but we surmise that it first appeared shortly after his winning the 1959 M.V.P. It is by far the rarest pin ever distributed of Nellie Fox with very few copies seen. Measuring the standard 1-1/4”, the pin is characterized by a very light glaze of oxidation in the reverse and a celluloid-surfaced front that’s without a single blemish. White Sox and Mighty Mite Fox enthusiasts would welcome this one as NM.
