I knew you'd finally come around, Rob. Let your inner Dodger fan out. You're among friends here....

I think we discussed this red Coliseum pennant earlier. The batter, in particular, we identified as being associated with Trench's pennants from that era. But, while I still believe Trench made this pennant, the rest of the artwork doesn't match the many, many other stadium pennants Trench made in the 1950s and 60s.

This Coliseum, in particular, is mostly empty. 92,000 empty seats, that is. Most of Trench's stadium pennants, including a subsequent version depicting the Coliseum with a Willard Mullin bum standing over the field, depict full stadiums--illustrated by a random pattern of multi-colored circles representing spectators. Not here.

The only other Trench pennant like this that comes to mind is the San Francisco Giants pennant showing the very same Trench batter standing over an illustration of Seals Stadium. That one, we agreed, looked like it was by Trench; but, again, the ballpark was drawn empty.

(I know you own it, so I'll let you post it in your response.)

I wonder if maybe the normal Trench artist was on vacation in April of 1958, when I suspect both were made?

Here is the Seals Stadium pennant and a later version? from Candlestick. Both empty. Must have been night games.

I do like the colors on the Dodgers pennant.

By the way, did anyone notice that this thread now has more than 2,500 replies? I think that it is now the most replied to thread on the board.

It is definitely a Trench Pennant. I used to own a string of National League Mini Pennants, which featured all of the NL teams' pennants sewn to a long black spine. I'm sure most of you have seen these at some point in time...

Anyway, this same Dodgers version (in mini) was included along with the more familiar Trench Mascots like Mr. Red, the Batting Cardinal, the screaming Brave and the Pirate. I wish I still had it to show here, but am 100% certain that it is Trench.

Great pennant, Rob (I love "off-color" versions like this!)

Hey bocca, did you know there's also a "fat font" version? Just like the d**gers pennant, they have a crudely drawn "diamond."

Someday I'll find that fat one! I wonder if that one was first? The original.

Here is the subsequent version of the Coliseum/stadium pennant by Trench. As you can see, this artwork looks more like the others from that era. The stadium is very detailed; in color; and, full of spectators. The angle of the stadium is also a bit different from the red version discussed earlier.

This bum character was originally created by Willard Mullin. Trench used him on their Ebbets Field/stadium pennant too, made several years earlier. I believe Trench also used a Mullin drawn mascot on several NY/SF Giants pennants from the 1950s. So, apparently this mystery artist had a thing for Mr. Mullin's work.

There's a third version that uses the same batter seen on the red Coliseum pennant above--but, with the updated rendition of the Coliseum shown below. I believe they miniaturized this variant and sold it as part of an NL pennant string, as mentioned above.

Default 1905 Football Pillow Covers

No doubt you have seen the same football player on circa 1910 college football pennants. These are two (2) different 1905 pillow covers by same artist. Courtesy photos: Mayseum, Daly City, California.

This one just arrived. My baseball player kid really likes these Colt 45s pennants with guns shooting baseballs.

Nice pick up...Your first pic and second pick are in vastly different realms of value.
