1940s/1950s New York Yankees Pennant Collection (4)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $406.00
Pennants were often among the most decorative and popular of all team souvenirs sold at stadium concession stands during the early to mid 1900s. Offered are four very unusual and scarce examples, dating from the 1940s/1950s, issued by the New York Yankees. All four pennants are in a fine state of preservation given their age and fragile nature, each displaying very little cracking to the painted lettering and images. 1) 27.5-inch long blue felt pennant featuring the team name and a generic illustration of a batter and catcher. While the figures are generic, the number "3" on the back of the left handed batter was certainly intended to represent the team's greatest player: Babe Ruth. Tack holes, otherwise Ex. 2) 29-inch long green felt pennant featuring the team name and generic baseball figure set against the club's "top hat" logo. Tack holes, otherwise Ex. 3) 29.5-inch long blue felt pennant featuring the team name and a depiction of Yankee Stadium and Uncle Sam. Ex-Mt. 4) 28-inch long red felt pennant featuring the team name and a depiction of Uncle Sam. Tack holes, otherwise Vg-Ex with a tiny bite at tip. Total: four pennants. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $406.00
