1953 Milwaukee Braves Pin

I saw this awesome Braves pin from their first year in Milwaukee, thought it would be cool to share it.

The pin is from the Braves first season in Milwaukee, 1953.

The Braves, now in Atlanta, played in Milwaukee through 1965 before moving south to the Georgia capital.

The Braves won consecutive National League Pennants in 1958 & 1959, beating the Yankees in the '57 Series, then losing the '58 Series to the Bronx Bombers.

Before moving to Milwaukee the Braves played in Boston, sharing the city with the Red Sox.

In 1914 the "Miracle Braves" won the first World Series in franchise history.

The Braves won the N.L. Flag by 10 games over perennial Senior Circuit powerhouse New York GiantS.
