Exceedingly rare oversized Philadelphia Phillies pennant dating from the club's 1915 pennant-winning season. This is the only example of this pennant we have ever seen, which is notable for the fact that all of the lettering is in the form of appliquéd felt, as opposed to paint. The blue-and-white felt pennant features the year ("1915") on the left and the team name ("Phillies") lettered to the right. This is one of several truly great early pennants in this auction, all from the same advanced collection, and each among the best pennants that we have ever offered. Ideal for display! The pennant (35 inches), which is complete with tassels, displays only light fading and a few minor creases. Excellent condition overall. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
