Thanks guys. Not sure why it’s so rare, my guess is that it was make my a local company or something. The style and font of the scroll is not something I recognize.

The pennant did have about a dozen rusty staples in it, to “fix” the crooked threading in the back, but I took them out and it looks much better.

So to each of you ... do you have a pennant that, despite not being anywhere near your oldest or most valuable, is simply your favorite? Whether it is for its appearance or back story ... let’s hear and see!

So hard to pick one favorite...

I suppose it's this for me. The first pennant I ever bought...somewhere around 1995...and the one that started the obsession. I've never seen another one.

But if I had to pick a favorite college pennant...

image host

Favorite non-NFL...

image host

Favorite "Modern"...

image host

Favorite Baseball...

image host

And then these three "favorites"...That I've been chasing for years but have never caught. The Rams and Falcons have slipped past me more times than I can count and for excruciatingly reasonable prices. I am pennant repellent to these three. The Go GO Gabriel, I've never even seen a clean picture of.

image hostimage host

One thing I've noticed over the years...I'm drawn to pennants with the color orange in them...Bengals, Browns, Orioles, Princeton, Bucs...especially orange and black. They just appeal to me. If they have a cat graphic even better (apparently). Not sure why this is...maybe because I graduated from Middletown High School and we were the Tigers. You can guess our color scheme. I really don't think about my high school days much...but it's a theory.

Beautiful pennants Rob...

Did not know that the Go-Go Gabriel even existed. Will keep an eye out at the National for all three of those. A longshot, I know...

As for my favorite pennant.... I've tried, but cannot pick just one. I think it changes every day. I guess (regardless of rarity, value and age) it would be the Reds Stadium Pennant with Mr. Red flying on a bat above Crosley Field. The detail is amazing, the subject matter is magical, and it pictures Crosley Field (where I attended my first-ever game with my Dad).

Plus the stadium pennants hold a special place in my heart, as they're the very first ones I can remember as a kid.

Default Santa Clara

For me, it was my connection to Santa Clara University that got my pennant collection started. And it is still the heart of my collection (although it is now pretty rare for me to find one I don't have). The Division I football program was long gone by the time I attended SCU, but I'd see the Orange Bowl trophy (and two Sugar Bowl trophies) when I attended SCU basketabll games (watching Kurt Rambis and others) as a kid.

I also like that a) most of these pennants are very rare, and b) the competition for them is not as tough as it is for some of the other reams I collect (e.g., Giants, 49ers, Astros, Oilers).

Finally, I know I've said it here before, but the 49ers would never have existed without Santa Clara University (Owners Tony Morabito and Al Ruffo, Coach Buck Shaw, Team colors from SCU). And I was a big 49ers fan as a kid. So collecting Santa Clara items is sort of like collecting pre-professional 49ers stuff.

I wonder who made it? The scroll doesn't exactly match the typical look of a Trench scroll, which is more wavy, like that Tigers one a few posts upward.

No tassels, either. And the colors are quite vibrant....

I'd guess WGN; but the script doesn't quite look like their work.

Nice pennant either way.

Great replies and awesome pics! Thanks to all. And yes, Mark, those stadium pennants are fabulous, hopefully someday we will learn why the Phillies never had one (nor Senators for that matter). Mets had one but from a different maker. I think every other team had one from Trench.

I can see why Fballguy Rob loves those pennants he has and lusts after the ones he's chasing. I especially like the Rams, the 1940 Tigers and the Falcons (just because it's so different).

The first game I ever attended was at also Crosley Field with MY Dad. I remember a freeway out past the outfield. The Giants put an absolute beat down on the Reds. I believe it was 1963...I once found the box score on Retrosheet. That day was the beginning of my long and often painful love of the Giants.

My favorites? Not super thrilling but I'd never seen the picture pennant before or since I got it. I believe it might be a prototype. The SF with the Giant is a carryover from NY. I also have the NY version in green, with tassels. Forgive me Kyle, but I forget the maker attributed to the "little guy in middle; ball at the tip." I just now noticed my SF version has a silky, not felt, spine.

In fact I am not unconvinced this is the exact same pennant that worked it’s way back to me, I seem to recall similar flaws. (I wouldn’t bet on it though.) Seller described it as poor condition but it’s not bad at all, in fact there’s no fading nor missing paint, badly needed some ironing, some original defects in threading but in this case the fair/decent condition takes a backseat to its awesomeness. It is now my favorite pennant!
Saw this and had a snipe set, but I was buying for resale. That is a very rare pennant and I agree the condition was solid. Nice pick up especially for the price.

Chris...
That's a great one! Add it to the list of something they would never make today (in this tightly controlled environment of corporate-approved logos).

Marc...
Beautiful Santa Clara Pennants. Looks like a true labor of love that took many years to compile!

Great pennants everyone. Really enjoy seeing these. Thanks Greg for kicking off the idea and to everyone else for participating. Hope we get a few more responses.

Marc...I can't imagine how long it's taken to find those Santa Clara football pennants. I don't think I've ever seen even one of them. You either have great connections or are incredibly patient! Absolutely amazing.

Mark S...I love your frame job on the Redlegs pennant. I assume you did it yourself? I know we've discussed previously, but what do you use to adhere the pennant to the backing?

Thanks, guys. It's been about 20 years of eBay searching for Santa Clara items. Having insomnia helps.

I very much enjoy this forum and seeing all of the cool pennants we collect. I enjoy both the super-rare and super-random/funky stuff. And I like seeing people add items to their specialized collections. I don't think any of us can collect it all, right?

That framed Reds pennant is not even mine. I was hoping I had saved a photo of mine, but couldn't find one. Then I went to Google Images, and still couldn't find one. So had to search a bit more, just to find an image of the pennant I was describing. Finally this one turned up, and somebody did indeed do a nice job framing it.

I have over 100 different Tiger pennants but these have to be my favorites. I especially love the ones with players names on them.

I like the player name pennants too. I recently picked up this orange on white version of the 1962 Giants NL Champs pennant (along with a few other things). I know that my picture isn't great (no sunlight in my pennant room), but it's nice and clean for a white pennant.

One of my favorite name pennants is the Giants 1965 phantom NL champs pennant. It is one of the few items connecting Warren Spahn with the Giants. It also lists Masanori Murakami (first MLB player from Japan) and Willie "McCovery". In total, six Hall of Famers. I don't have a picture of mine handy, so stole the attached one from the internet.

Congrats of winning that white Giants Pennant. You outbid me, among others...

Great score... I love that color combo with the black spine. Can't recall seeing many of those white ones (if any). And to find a white one that clean is approaching "needle in a haystack" territory. Great stuff!

Mark, I love those Reds stadium pennants, too. This one is my favorite for showing Redlegs, also it seems that white pennants of this material (felt, not cloth) were rare back in the early 60s, I only recall seeing the Phillies in white with the same trademark. For some reason the stadium graphic is all gray and hard to see detail, not sure if it was colored differently and faded.

Great Tigers pennant collection! The Tigers have, by far, the nicest assortment of pennants. Not just in terms of graphics but they also by far have the most dated pennants. My guess is that there exists a Tigers pennant with the year displayed anywhere from 1935-1952. ...

That's a beauty Greg...

Love it, and I believe it was made that way. I only have the full color version of that pennant, which I love almost as much as the one I posted. Yours is obviously far rarer.

Not sure why white pennants of that era are so scarce but over the years, I must've passed on hundreds of them, because you just can't find them in "clean" condition. Maybe that's why the makers avoided white felt for the most part???
