I typically have no problem with pennants shipped rolled. When shipped flat, some sellers may be inclined to tape them down. Yikes! Still, these are innocent flubs usually made by sellers that don’t know any better, there unfortunately are sellers that do know better and are guilty of much shadier, deliberate conduct. Shipping is usually a lesser concern. But yes it is good to reach out in advance to discuss shipping details. Most understand and are willing to adjust.

They sell "pressing cloths" for just this purpose. They're cheap, last forever and do a great job. I've been using the same one for probably 7 years. The last thing you'd want to do it is put the iron directly on the pennant. But most novice pennant collectors already know this.

New reading material arrived today.

Didnít see a Blue Jays or Expos section. Is that due to them being Canadian?

I donít know this for a fact, but I would guess it is because they donít have any pennants that arenít crap.

A full size Montreal Royals pennant - Iíve never seen one but surely one exists - would be an easy four figures and probably worthy of the cover!

There are a few Expos pennants that can fetch a price higher than quite a few of those listed in the book. This white (Ad Flag?) one is probably $35-40 and the 1969 ASCO about the same. Cloth version is very tough. The 6 foot version pictured is super rare and really well made. Grommets!

The author does include Oakland A’s (1968-) and Brewers (1970-) but no Padres or Royals.

Come to think of it Ö I remember seeing somewhere a 3/4 size cloth Expos with the Trench left handed batter graphic Ö and no MLB trademark. Most certainly a knock-off. But still pretty wild. Anyone have it or a pic? I canít find it.

To my eye, everything about that ^^^^ is butt ugly.

The disproportionate ball, the excess space between said ball and the lettering, etc. It might fetch a decent price but itís ugly.

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Dropping a quick post to share some pickups over the last 6 months. I canít say I have a ton of soccer pennants, but it it was unique enough to snag it.

Last week, someone asked to see better pictures of the three pennants that I picked up a few weeks ago. Here they are.

Once I get done moving, I will iron them and clean them up a bit to be more presentable.

Nice haul Erik. Regarding the soccer pennant...To me, if I haven't seen something before, it's probably a good idea to buy it...regardless of genre. Great get.
