    Description

    Circa 1915 Boston Red Sox World Champions Large Pennant. Magnificently rare pennant has scarcely appeared in the hobby since the famed Barry Halper auction of 1999 saw its Lot 497 realize $4,312. While the decades of suffering that have ensued since the production of this large (35" long) and important relic have since come to a close, clearly the vast appeal of this Babe Ruth-era beauty remains as strong as ever. The oversized red felt body of the pennant shows an expected degree of wear in the form of tack holes and a scattering of other small defects, with mild cracking and toning of the screen printing. As the catalog imagery should rightfully attest however, the overall visual power of the piece is hardly diminished by such concerns. Three of the four original tassels, so often missing in the rare instances of pennants from this era, are present here, along with a portion of the fourth. A truly special "pre-Curse" artifact.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
