Thanks Kyle. I hadnt realized Spalding distributed Repro Co. pennants.

Here is a banner of mine, c.1920, measuring about 60.

Last night was Hunt's Annual Super Bowl Eve football auction. Not too much in there that excited me, but it's always interesting to see what things sell for. Some Baltimore Colts pennants went for ridiculous amounts...Such as this one, which could've been had for $95 on eBay (in better condition too, just to pour a little more salt in).

People always seem to overpay to the auction houses.

Equally if not more absurd...

https://huntauctions.com/live/imagev...=307&lot_qual=


And I "get" this one because of the rarity and that game's immense importance. But it still sold for a price that must've made the consignor giddy with joy...

A couple of recent arrivals.

The 1936 Giants mini-pennant is about 9" long without the tassels. It came together with the pin. Anyone have any insights about it?

The pin is almost certainly 1951 or 1954. For some reason, they are very common.although not with the giant ball!

Thanks Rob, but I'm pretty sure the pin is from 1936. The difference is noted by the style of the 'S' in GIANTS.

Paul Muchinsky details this in his book

I'm keen to hear thoughts on the mini pennant. I'm guessing there's no way to know the manufacturer.

Clevelandpennant


I posted the question over at VFC but I was advised to ask over here so here goes...

I purchased this pennant a few months ago. I do not know if its baseball, football, college, high school. It may not even be a sports pennant. I purchased it because I liked it.

Can anyone enlighten me what year (i know its pretty early) and what the approximate value is?

The pennant is oversized, approx 33". The felt is soft and thick and the letters seem sewn in because they are raised. It is definitely high quality.

Any help would be appreciated.

I had forgotten about that distinction. I have the same as yours, also with the big tin ball. Yours is 1.25", correct? I also have the 1951/54 pin in both 1.25" and 1.75."

As far as the pennant manufacturer, I can't help you.

Yep, mine is 1.25". Any ideas how to display / store the pin with the ball charm? That ball charm is cool but at 1.5" it doesn't fit into the normal display cases for pins.

Default ca. 1910 Phila. A's pennant?

Anybody here win this bad boy last month? Beautiful pennant, never seen it before. Seller described it as being from 1929-30, but I wouldn't rule out 1910, 1911 or 1913.

8.75" x 24". No maker's mark.

Default 55 Trench Brooklyn

I'm sure many of you have seen the 55 Brooklyn World Champions Trench knockoff. Consulting with some members on here, they look like they have some value. Any thoughts?

Ive always felt that these were made some years ago by someone who passed them off as authentic. Dont know for sure. They have been re-circulated by reputable auction houses, too. The 1955s BKLN and NYY scrolls were both cloth, this is felt or felt-like with subtle differences in the graphics, and for some reason the spine is sewn shut.

Figured Id share these color variants of an Eagles pennant The green version of this pennant is pretty common, the red is very scarce and I believe Ive seen only one other aside from the one I own. Then a couple of months ago I added this blue variant - its the only one Ive seen.

Nice...I just audited my Eagles pennants yesterday. I only have this one in green and have only ever seen it in green.

Great Eagles pennants.

I didn't win this but I hadn't seen this version of the 1951 ASG Pennant before. Is it a new find or just pretty rare?

Very rare and one of at least FIVE All Star Game pennants from 1951, all five clearly from the same company (WGN). I own two of them pictured here, the one you show is the same design as the 1950 WGN from Comiskey.

The bottom two are other 1951s I don’t own but found pics online.

Side note: three of the five 1951s have ‘Reynolds’ and ‘Cain’ on the AL scroll. I guess Cain is supposed to be Ferris Fain. Bob Cain was not on the AL roster. Not sure who Reynolds is, if it’s Allie he wasn’t on the roster either.

I've had all five, but have since sold 3 of them. The 4th and 5th ones above are especially scarce.

Thanks Greg/Mark.

For future reference if I see one of these again, what price range do you put these in (assuming the pennant is clean with the tip intact and no holes)?

I would speculate $450-600.

Agree.... perhaps in the higher end of that range, given the fact it might be your only crack at it.
