    Circa 1948 Satchel Paige Souvenir Pennant. One of the most sought after pennants of the post-war era is presented here for your collecting pleasure, a scarce relic originally purchased at Cleveland Stadium around the time of the Cleveland Indians' 1948 World Championship season. It pictures the forty-one year old rookie pitching star from the Kansas City Monarchs, and stands among the first post-integration ballpark souvenirs ever produced to picture a player of African-American descent. The paint is lightly cracked in places but still displays very well, and the felt is free of the tack hole damage which characterizes the overwhelming majority of period pennants. Even the original tassels are here, likewise unpunctured. Some soiling at the white spine is the main condition issue, and this could quite possibly be minimized by a careful cleaning. Length 28".

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