Early 1960’s Beaver Pin with Plastic Figurine

This vintage Oregon State pinback is one of my favorites because it is the only one I have seen with a small plastic figurine of a football player that was hand painted. By looking at the uniform and helmet of the little figure with the two bars across the facemask, I would date this to the early 1960’s. This came out of a collection of similar pins from other colleges, but I’m not sure who made them or why!
