Mike,

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.

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.

I really love pennants. Just wish they were easier to ship and display.
