Any new treasures? This is my new favorite pennant (from my collection at least). The milky portion of the image is from schmutz on the lens...darn kids.

That's a nice one Mike...and one I don't think I've seen before. How many different prewar Tigers pennants does that make for you now?

I've had quite a good run here lately, but nothing has shown up in the mailbox yet. All I have are the ebay photos.....



Antelope park was the home to the Western League team from Lincoln pre 1947


This is one I've been waiting patiently for after getting sniped out on the last one.


This is only the second poster/handbill I've ever seen for the NI and it is by far the latest. I have found no literature at all on the NI team from the 1930s.

There aren't a lot of things that I would say I'm an "authority" on, but I've seen a heck of a lot of different Cleveland Indians pennants over the years. I'd never seen this one before this week, so I was thrilled to pick it up on eBay. Not a great photo; it's the one that was in the listing.

That makes 4 maybe 5 Dan. Not sure of the date of a couple. They have early characteristics, but who knows for sure unless you see a photo of one that is dated. I am LOVING pennants right now and the Tigers seem to have had a wider variety than most teams. I would say Cleveland is up there options available as well. Does anyone know a collector who is an "authority" on pennants? D. Bushing seems to know almost every niche of memorabilia and has written short articles in MEERS about pennants. I would give my right arm to see the personal collections of some of the premier pennant collectors.

I almost went after that pin Dan. However, I thought (knew)you would appreciate it more than I.

Rob, I don't recall seeing that piece before. Are you an Indians pennant collector only? Most of my pennant efforts of late have been Tigers and an occasional Yankees but I also have NY Giants, Cards, W Sox, and a few others. Only one Indian, but it's a common 60s piece.

Mike,

I collect all types of pre-1960 Cleveland Indians memorabilia, but I have a particular fondness for -- in no particular order -- pennants, pencil clips, opening-day ticket stubs and figural display pieces.

I rarely pick up pennants anymore because I don't often come across one I don't have, plus there's the space issue of displaying them. I've got 4 1/2 walls of my basement dedicated to Indians pennants, and I don't want to devote any more space to them. When I first started to collect pennants, I would pursure all the color variations for each different style. I quickly came to the conclusion that that wasn't practical, unless I wanted to store a lot of pennants in boxes, which I thought defeats the purpose of collecting in the first place. As it is, the only ones on display are the unusual ones and styles that reflect All-Star Games, World Series or other special events.

I really love pennants. Just wish they were easier to ship and display.

Rob, how does a fella go about seeing a few photos of your basement walls. I would greatly appreciate a peak at your pennant collection.
