Hello to all the fans of Hopalong Cassidy! Offered for sale is one of the rarer Hopalong Cassidy Pinback Buttons from the 1950's. During the 1950's, Hopalong Cassidy gave banks across the United States permission to give boys and girls and grown-ups the chance to own a special Saving Rodeo Pin-Back Button if they were able to save $10.00, $25.00, $50.00 or $500.00. The pins had various illustrations on the front and came in different colors.
What makes this button much harder to find is that it was for little girls who were able to save the $10.00 and were then rewarded with this "Pink" Hopalong Cassidy's Bronc Buster Saving Rodeo Pin-Back Button. During the 1950's, Hopalong Cassidy had a huge following of women of all ages. At 50 years old, he was quite debonair and a real looker making boyfriends and husbands quite jealous.
The pin measures 1 7/16" in diameter. On the button it reads across the top, "Hopalong Cassidy's", then across the bottom, "Saving Rodeo". In the middle of the pin in black it reads, "Bronc Buster". Along the edge it reads, "Copyright 1950 William Boyd".
**Condition: Very good condition. The front of the pin is clean, bright and very shiny. No rust on front or back of pin. The back of the pin is very clean and shiny with very light wear along the outer rim of the back of the button(the silver rim). Please see photos for a good look at the condition of this pin.
If you collect Hoppy memorabilia, this rare Hoppy Pinback would certainly make a nice addition to your collection. A very special gift or birthday present for a mom or grandmother who was a big fan of Hopalong Cassidy during the 1950's and this simple pin may bring back great childhood memories.
