1979 Penn Emblem Patches

This set features multi-color, three dimensional embroidered portraits of 100 of baseball's favorites displayed on patches approximately 2 5/8 x 3 1/4". The patches could be ordered by mail for $2.50 each from Penn Emblem Co. of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The patches are unnumbered and checklisted below in alphabetical order.  One interesting note the Pete Rose patch can be found in 3 varieties normal red outline about 97%, blue outline about 3%, and a black only 1 known black has been seen might be more but extremely rare so most likely a proof of some type most likely caused by his move from the reds to phillies.
