During the 1934 World Series Tigers fans were given the opportunity to purchase one of the most unique souvenirs ever produced: a silver-colored cane that also housed an orange silk pennant that could be waved in support of the home nine. Manufactured by J. A. B. Madden of Detroit, the wooden cane head is attached to a thin metal rod that can be lifted up to reveal the colorful pennant. The design of the pennant (22.5 inches) features a leaping tiger and is lettered "1934 American League Champs." To the left of the design is a listing of the club's starting lineup, including Hall of Famers Mickey Cochrane, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, and Goose Goslin. The cane, which measures 36 inches in length normally and 51 inches when fully extended, displays light tarnishing and a few minor dents. The pennant remains in Excellent to Mint condition. This is the first example of this unusual souvenir we have ever offered and we have seen only a few others over the years. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
