Hey guys, I know it's Canadian, but I'm curious if anyone is familiar with this particular pennant. I'm wondering if it's a CFL Eskimos pennant (the modern club has existed since 1949), or possible an earlier example, as Wiki states that two early football clubs in the city used the "Eskimos" moniker, one from 1895-1923, the other from 1929-39. The use of the term "Eskimo" instead of "Eskimos" along with the leather-style looking helmet and somewhat melon shaped ball makes me think it could be from the second club to use the name...
Or is it just a 1950s CFL example?

What do you think?

.... Sorry the image turned out so poor..

This appears to be a mini pennant, not that it matters but you sometime see some different colors and styles on minis. I would say due to color and font on pennant this is a classic 50's maybe up to early 60's.

Brent,
Just so you know, I have little knowledge on Canadian football league other than running across some of the Grey Cup pennants over the years. You may want to do more research to see if you can link it to the late part of the 30's team. I just think it is more likely 50's. Good luck.

Default Seals pennant thoughts

So, I bought this Seals pennant on ebay suspecting that it was probably some kind of modern reproduction. The seller had it listed about a month ago, pulled it, but then listed it again. I thought it was intriguing enough to buy, given the price. I paid about what I would expect for a repro and was the only bidder. But, I can't find any other examples of it. If it was a repo (e.g., sold at SF Giants games or something like that) it should be more common. I'm no PCL expert, but do keep an semi-regular eye on Seals items.

I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this pennant, has a thought about it, or has seen it before. It is soft felt, with no tags. The Seals graphic is raised a bit above the felt and "soft" to the touch.

Definite Reproduction... albeit a nice looking one.

Great contemporary display piece!

Yeah... repo was my thought as well. I wonder where it came from? Seems like there would be more floating around.

I've attached a photo of a similar one that is posted online. I wonder if that one is real or a repro as well.

This all made me realize that I don't really know much about new pennants, as I haven't purchased one (other than maybe this one) in years.
