Default Curious about this one...

I don't do much with baseball pennants but I was curious about this White Sox pennant. I see it typically listed as 1940's but I'm guessing it's more likely from the 1950's. The base runner on it is black which i'd guess would be extremely rare to see on a pennant from the 40's...and even probably from the 50's.

It's not listed in Egner's book...but this pennant has sold very cheaply on Ebay recently. Some sales in the $20's. I paid $41 this one...Just thought it was cool. Surprised though that it's not selling for more. Is it just that common?

I like that pennant, too. I believe the whole "Go Go" thing pertained to the 1959 White Sox. So, not super super old but I agree the black player is out of the ordinary (I think).

I think it is supposed to (loosely) represent Minnie Minoso.

There is another rarer version that actually says "Go-Go Minoso".

That said, it's an undervalued pennant in my opinion. Very attractive design and with nice ties to the '59 Go-Go Sox. It is rather common, so I guess the only way to explain the low price is to surmise that everyone who wants this pennant has access to one.

Default Looking for opinions

I am interested in opinions on a Detroit pennant. It definitely appears to be an older pennant. It is 36" long and does not include the tassel length. The text type is consistent with dates pre-1920. I believe this thread also contains a pic of a 1917 New York pennant with the same woven ribbon which is the only similar example I have seen. I am reinserting that pic here. I am interested in thoughts on the age, whether it may just be a "city" pennant or if more examples of the woven ribbon are known. Any help appreciated.

Unless you have specific provenance or a photo of a fan holding one of these in the stands, I don't believe you can conclude these are sports-related. They look like City souvenir pennants, perhaps distributed at a commencement, parade or celebration of some sort.

That said, the gothic font and colors of the Detroit pennant are a better match to the Tigers than the New York Pennant is to the Giants. The Giants didn't wear black/orange until 1933, and that particular "NY" logo does not match any that the Giants ever used.

Since neither pennant has the Team Name, I don't think you can comfortably attribute either one to baseball. Still an attractive piece.

Nice score Rob...

That's my favorite Broncos Helmet by far...

Did you get that on ebay (as part of the multi-piece lot?) I think there was also a Pin and a Plaque in the grouping?

Great pickup either way,
Mark

Yeah....I've been watching that lot for weeks. I just wanted the pennant. Every time the listing ended, I'd shoot the guy a message trying to entice him to sell just the pennant. We finally agreed to a fair price on the lot. I'm hoping to get a good portion of my money back by selling the other two pieces. The helmet plaque is pretty cool...but I'm a pennant guy.
