Two Circa 1910 Philadelphia A's Pennants (2)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,880.00
Presented are two different circa 1910 Philadelphia Athletics baseball pennants, each of which is exceptionally attractive and rare, and prominently displays the club’s famous “white elephant” mascot. 1) Blue-felt pennant (25 inches in length) lettered “Connie Mack’s Athletics,” above which is an image of a white elephant and a ringmaster. The pennant is in extremely strong condition, with all of the original paint intact and with no visible crazing. The pennant is extremely bright and clean. A few very tiny “moth” holes, and missing white tassels at the top, are minor faults that have no impact on its otherwise strong Excellent appearance. 2) Blue-felt pennant (23.5 inches in length) featuring an image of a white elephant alongside the team name “Athletics.” The very tip of the pennant has a tiny clip and extremely close inspection reveals a few tiny "moth" holes. All of the original white paint remains intact with no evidence of crazing. Like the other example, the pennant is technically in Very Good to Excellent condition, but it presents as a strong Excellent. Each of these pennants, which date from the height of Connie Mack’s 1910-1914 baseball dynasty, is particularly rare. These are among the most graphic pennant designs of the era. Total: 2 pennants. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,880.00
