1914 Boston Braves Bandanna
Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $1,508.00
Extremely rare 1914 Boston Braves bandanna features a team photograph and portraits of five stars. The 1914 "Miracle Braves" earned their nickname when they staged one of the greatest midseason comebacks in baseball history, moving from last to first place between July 18th and August 25th. They went on to win the pennant and sweep Connie Mack's powerful Athletics in the World Series. This decorative blue-toned bandana, issued in 1914 as a souvenir to celebrate this legendary team, features the image of a large Indian head in the center, above which are portraits of Braves standouts Lefty Tyler, Rabbit Maranville, Johnny Evers, Joe Connolly, and Dick Rudolph, and below which is a photo of the Braves in a classic team pose. There are a couple of small, light stains (to the right of Maranville and on Tyler's shirt) and a small bite in the upper corner. These flaws are very minor and the bandana is otherwise in Excellent condition. Dimensions: 17.75 x 18.75 inches. Beautifully matted and framed to total dimensions of 23 x 23.5 inches. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $1,508.00
