Picked up a couple of new pennants.
Other than a tiny bit of the tip missing this SF Giants pennant is in really good condition. Cool graphics too.


Ordinarily I wouldn't buy a pennant with damage like this but on a rare pennant like this I can live with it. Its a shame to because if it were not for the holes above the scroll and the piece missing from the tip it would be a true, mint condition, gem. No tac holes, tassels are there, color hasn't faded a bit, and still has the "new" feel to it that I imagine it had in '54.

c1915 Omaha Rourkes posing with Billy Sunday...I have only begun to research this one, but I think 1915 is a good date as Sunday came to Omaha and spent 4 months "cleaning up the town"...I also found a picture of the 1916 Omaha team and the uniforms were exactly like this.

It's been a good october.

Picked this up at an estate auction today -Mid 1880s I'd guess judging from the gloves and the bat. Note the fingerless glove on the fella in the left front row.

It's Iowa so if anyone has a Nebraska photo they'd like to trade this one is available.

Love that Nebraska Indians PC, Dan.

(Was everyone on the team called "Chief"?)

Probably more than a few of them over their careers.

Thanks Clint, and David, yes I would. One of those would be the Holy Grail of all Holy Grails to me.

Congrats, Marty... Those were two of my favorite lots from H & S.

I am curious as to how people display the Silks. That Matty is gorgeous, but I would not know how to best show it off... are you going to frame it?
