Trio of rare Seattle Pilots metal printing plates dating from the club's one-and-only Major League season in 1969. These plates originate directly from the personal collection of Lewis Matlin, who was the Seattle Pilots director of stadium operations in 1969. Two of the plates (1.25x1.25") feature the Seattle Pilots logo and were used for business cards, letterhead, etc. The third plate (1.75x.75"), which was used for similar type items, plus advertisements and publications, reads "Sick Stadium/For Tickets/PA 5-8500." Each plate shows wear commensurate with its former use and is in Excellent condition. Accompanied by a Lewis Matlin Seattle Mariners business card (NR-MT), which is a scarce collectible in its own right.
