That's quite a month Mark!

Love those Tigers pennants. Don't think I've seen either before. Was the Jackie Robinson a BIN or auction? Don't remember seeing it until after it was sold.

Thanks for pumping the lifeblood back into this thread.

Great pick-ups Mark. The orange Tiger pennant is one that I've never seen before either. I once owned that New York Yanks football pennant. The movie FBI Story with Jimmy Stewart has a scene of a football game at the stadium, the pennant can be seen in the background of the concourse.

Great pickups, Mark and Rob!

I agree with Mark on the “lost” pennant. I think I have 2500+ ebay transactions. The vast majority were sent USPS. Not a single one has been lost.

This would be my first lost one as well if I remember correctly...Though your post jogged my memory of another incident. About 5 years ago...The first time I attempted to buy the New York Yanks football pennant Mark posted...I received a poster tube in the mail with one of the end caps missing and nothing inside. I was always suspect of the seller on that one. I won it in an eBay auction for a pretty low winning bid...around $100. He didn't seem too surprised or upset that it was lost and refunded my money no questions asked.

Those are some great pennants.

Mark,
That Jackie is in incredible condition as is the 58 Giants. Very tough.

Rob,
You have picked up some very rare football pennants. People tend to take for granted items like these because they look cool, but those are very rare and the condition is fantastic.

I’ve been meaning to send you some photos for your site, but haven’t had the time. Kids are keeping me too busy with summer sports.

Thanks Jason! No rush. Would love to add your pictures any time.

I've had hot and cold streaks lately...but the hot streaks have been super hot. I reached out to the seller of the Texans pennant to ask questions about it and she mentioned she had the Rams pennant that wasn't listed yet as well. Being a Rams fan I immediately asked if she could send me a picture and low and behold...it was one of the few Ram pennants I didn't own.

Another new addition...

I keep saying I have to cool it and stop spending money....but then another must have appears and is too rare to pass up.

Rob.... very smart to jump on them when the opportunity arises. You can always re-make the money, but cannot recreate these vintage beauties. As Jason said, these Football Pennants are super-rare, and most are tougher than Baseball by far.

So you've gotta strike while the iron is hot, because the dry spells can drag on for weeks (if not months). But of course you already know this

As for that Jackie Pennant, I was pretty fortunate to spot it shortly after it was listed. It had a starting bid that was $500 below the Buy It Now price. I didn't want to take the chance of bidding in the traditional manner, so decided to exercise the Buy It Now. A no-brainer... they just don't turn up any more, especially in that condition.

That's what I tell my wife...I'm not spending money, I'm putting it a non-traditional savings account.

Great pick up on that Robinson!
