Description

    Circa 1913 Frank Chance New York Yankees Pennant. One third of the famous "Tinkers to Evers to Chance" trio that last brought World Championship glory to the Chicago Cubs, Chance took the reins of the New York American League squad in 1913, the season the team officially adopted the Yankees moniker. This gorgeous celebrates the "Peerless Leader," likely purchased by a fan at the team's new Polo Grounds home. One must search intently to find any signs of aging after a century of life, and all we've been able to find is a missing quarter-inch of the sharp tip of the pennant. The printing is superior to most pennants a third its age, and there aren't even tack holes in the tassels. An extraordinarily high-grade specimen measuring twenty-five inches (25") excluding tassels. Framed to 15x34.5".
