A Billy Williams Souvenir From 2000

I picked up a Billy Williams souvenir that the Cubs gave away on July 9, 2000.

The Cubs media guide lists two "Commemorative Lapel Pins" giveaways.  The first was on July 7 (a Sammy Sosa pin) and the second was mine, on July 9.

The pin is a kinda replica of the Billy Williams flag that flies on the right field foul pole at Wrigley Field.  I say kinda because they've got the number font wrong.


I was the only bidder so I got this for the opening bid of 99¢.  I'm not a pin collector, but this was a deal I couldn't pass up.

The pin is also reminiscent of another Billy Williams souvenir I picked up.  More about that tomorrow.


  1. Neat pin, especially at the price. I am not a big pin collector either, but I do pick them up if I see something neat at a reasonable price.

  2. I love pins. Each time I go to a Yankee game I try to pick up a pin for my collection.
