    1916 BF2 Ferguson Bakery Pennants Collection (19 Different) With Mack, and Johnson. The Ferguson Bakery Felt Pennants is a series of 97 different known subjects on 6" tall pieces of pennant shaped felt decorated with the players name, team and small 1-1/4 x 1-3/4" B&W photo. Believed to have been circulated around 1916, the felts were inserted as a premium into bags of Ferguson's Bakery Co. loaves of bread. Today, they are scarce and as one wanders down the isles of the largest hobby conventions only a precious few dealers will carry a "BF2" and the chances are very high they will not be as nice as these. This is a collection of 19 different pennants that, along with the Joe Jackson seen elsewhere in this this auction, comprise a newly discovered group that have remained in exemplary condition with well-defined corners and the all too critical tip. Includes: Gainer/Tan, Gedeon/, Hendrix/Mustard, Miller Huggins/Grey, Walter Johnson/Grey, Jones/Mustard, Judge/Lt. Grey, Kauff/Lt. Grey, Killefer/Lt. Grey, Lavander/Dk. Blue, Leonard/Violet, Lewis/Lt. Blue, Lobert/Lavender, Ludurus/White, Connie Mack/White, Magee/White, Mamaux/Dk. Grey, Rabbit Maranville/Lt. Blue, Wingo/Olive. Colors are bold with no signs of fading, images are sharp and largely untouched. Each presents at the "excellent-mint" to "near-mint" range. NOTE: All are 100% real and unaltered. Four were sent to SGC for presentation purposes. SGC does not give number grades to this series. That is the sole reason for the "Authentic" rating.
