Matty,
What is the history on those pennants? I don't really collect any of the smaller or premium pennants, but I do have the white 1936 Yankees pennant that I believe is part of that set. I know it is very difficult, but don't know the exact history. Just wondering. Thanks, Jason

If I recall correctly it was a send in premium, but they seem much more difficult to find than that. Just wondering if you have any additional history other than what might be somewhat common knowledge. Here is my Yankees version.

Default Millers pennant

Erik,
I don't post much of my collection, but you did mention the Millers hockey pennant. I have never seen another, nor have I seen a Saints version (pre WHA) like this.

Default 1936 premium pennants

The red ball sales company existed only from 1936 to 1938 During that period they produced an enormous number of small bf3 pennants. One set that they produced contained 16 pennants corresponding to the 16 major league teams. Below is an original 1936 salesman's sample displaying the 16 small pennants. with a promotion to buy a large pennant of the same style. For some reason, the only pennant that varies in color is the 1936 pennant shown above. There are several of these pennants that are extremely rare. Others are a little more common. Also shown below is a envelope with the same offer for the large pennants. Finally I have also included one of the gum wrappers.

Those pennants are great, and I appreciate getting more info about their origin, but I'd like them even more if all of them were in the appropriate colors for each team. Not sure if others feel the same way, but I much prefer pennants to be in a team's primary or secondary colors.

Question regarding the large premiums in your case. I see two large Charlie Grimm pennants in green, and another Cubs in pink. Is it also a Grimm or someone else? Can't make out the name.

Default pennant

Here is a little better picture. It is Grimm. It is an eight inch pennant, and is almost a perfect match for the smaller type 9 bf3 of Grimm. Probably larger because he was the mgr. of the cubs in 37 as Dykes was the manager of the White Sox. I presume they were made as part of the type 9 set.
