Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Any new treasures? This is my new favorite pennant (from my collection at least). The milky portion of the image is from schmutz on the lens...darn kids.<br /><br />[IMG]<img src="">[/IMG]

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>That's a nice one Mike...and one I don't think I've seen before. How many different prewar Tigers pennants does that make for you now?<br /><br />I've had quite a good run here lately, but nothing has shown up in the mailbox yet. All I have are the ebay photos.....<br /><br /><img src=""><br /><br />Antelope park was the home to the Western League team from Lincoln pre 1947<br /><img src=""><br /><br />This is one I've been waiting patiently for after getting sniped out on the last one.<br /><img src=""><br /><br />This is only the second poster/handbill I've ever seen for the NI and it is by far the latest. I have found no literature at all on the NI team from the 1930s.<br /><img src=""><br />

Posted By: <b>Rob Dewolf</b><p>There aren't a lot of things that I would say I'm an "authority" on, but I've seen a heck of a lot of different Cleveland Indians pennants over the years. I'd never seen this one before this week, so I was thrilled to pick it up on eBay. Not a great photo; it's the one that was in the listing.<br /><br /><img src="">

Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>That makes 4 maybe 5 Dan. Not sure of the date of a couple. They have early characteristics, but who knows for sure unless you see a photo of one that is dated. I am LOVING pennants right now and the Tigers seem to have had a wider variety than most teams. I would say Cleveland is up there options available as well. Does anyone know a collector who is an "authority" on pennants? D. Bushing seems to know almost every niche of memorabilia and has written short articles in MEERS about pennants. I would give my right arm to see the personal collections of some of the premier pennant collectors. <br /><br />I almost went after that pin Dan. However, I thought (knew)you would appreciate it more than I.<br /><br />Rob, I don't recall seeing that piece before. Are you an Indians pennant collector only? Most of my pennant efforts of late have been Tigers and an occasional Yankees but I also have NY Giants, Cards, W Sox, and a few others. Only one Indian, but it's a common 60s piece.

Posted By: <b>Rob Dewolf</b><p>Mike,<br /><br />I collect all types of pre-1960 Cleveland Indians memorabilia, but I have a particular fondness for -- in no particular order -- pennants, pencil clips, opening-day ticket stubs and figural display pieces.<br /><br />I rarely pick up pennants anymore because I don't often come across one I don't have, plus there's the space issue of displaying them. I've got 4 1/2 walls of my basement dedicated to Indians pennants, and I don't want to devote any more space to them. When I first started to collect pennants, I would pursure all the color variations for each different style. I quickly came to the conclusion that that wasn't practical, unless I wanted to store a lot of pennants in boxes, which I thought defeats the purpose of collecting in the first place. As it is, the only ones on display are the unusual ones and styles that reflect All-Star Games, World Series or other special events.<br /><br />I really love pennants. Just wish they were easier to ship and display.

Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Rob, how does a fella go about seeing a few photos of your basement walls. I would greatly appreciate a peak at your pennant collection.
