Description

    1940's "Welcome St. Louis Browns" Huge Banner. Sadly for the current residents of Baltimore, the relocated Browns franchise now known as the Orioles has adopted the theme of hopelessness that kept its predecessor in the American League basement for the overwhelming majority of its existence. But the Browns were lovable losers and enjoy a fervent collecting base today, almost six decades since leaving St. Louis solely to Cardinal rule. Our belief is that this banner awaited the club at one of their spring training destinations, or perhaps for Opening Day festivities at their home ballpark. The massive canvas banner measures ten feet in width and thirty-nine inches in height, with all lettering and decorations very professionally applied in brown and orange tackle twill. Condition is marvelous, quite a departure from what one typically encounters in banners of comparable size and age. A visually arresting piece for the collector with wall space to spare.
