This is my collection of N.Y. Giants Polo Grounds Gate Passes. The holder of this would be allowed in to the Polo Grounds for the season. From what I have seen, these were issued from 1913 to 1931 to VIPs, politicians and N.Y. elite. There are made of sterling silver by Lambert Bros. in N.Y. The backs are engraved with the holder's name and a number. My father collected these in the late 80's and passed them on to me after his death. The photo in the picture is a reprint of the Polo Grounds from 1912. My collection includes

1919 - Baseball Diamond
1923 - Baseball with Blue Enamel
1924 - Wooden Gate
1926 - Welcome Hand
1927 - Fan of Bats

My brother has the 1922 White Pennant with Blue Enamel. Maybe someday he will let me add it to my collection. I have a good list of the complete series and photos of each year except 1916, 1918, and 1928. Please let me know if you have any photos of these missing years. Happy to share my list and other photos if you want to see them.

Always on the lookout for more of these and would love to fill in some more of the missing ones but they are expensive. Occasionally, they show up on eBay or other auctions but they usually sell for $600-1,000 each. Some bring more. Hope you enjoy.
