An eBay auction recently closed offering an early 1960s complete set of American League mini-pennants. See: https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-MINT-1....m43663.l10137

Perhaps one of you won it?

I'm curious about the manufacturer, as I see these minis individually all the time. The same company also sold a similar set featuring National League teams.

I will post a photo from this listing and a separate one featuring the original card headers. Does anyone recognize the manufacturer? There appears to be a name or logo in the upper left corner of the card header, above the word "Colorful" but neither I nor the seller could make it out.

I didn't win it but here's a better pick. Hanco? Hancock?

Cool little set, Kyle. I didn't win and I'm not sure of the manufacturer. I have a different set of minis in original packaging. I'll check them.

Marc - here's the red pennant I bleached. It came out great. It's older than yours. I think I've seen it in a 1964 merchandise mailer. Which is weird, because my 1962 pennant was ruined...

I wouldn't recommend bleaching that Astros. I experimented with a couple late 60s/early 70's pennants a while back and the results wouldn't be classified as a success.

One of us must be color-blind. I see those graphics as orange (not red). Not sure if that difference matters much, with regard to bleaching. But wanted to point it out, just in case.

Damn good point, Mark!

I may hold off on the Astros.... but I do have a copy of that same Giants pennant that could use some cleaning.

Rob: You are correct! It is HANCO, a pennant maker from New York City apparently, as confirmed by this label from a vintage Seaworld pennant I just came across. (See: https://www.ebay.com/i/142667782228?chn=ps)

Suffice it to say, I had never heard of them before.

I guess the logo is supposed to be a painter's palette, with a smaller pennant draped across it emblazoned with the name "HANCO".

Curious if HANCO ever made any other sports pennants beyond those AL/NL minis, which seem to have been made in the early 1960s...?
