Description

    Enormous 1914 Boston Braves World Champions Pennant--Finest Known Example. The intimate details of this incredible piece have been lost to history, such questions as manufacturer and original purpose (did it fly at the stadium?), but three things are for certain--it's huge, it's original to 1914, and it's as rare as rare can be. Stretching the tape measure to an unbelievable fifty-five inches from stem to stern, this mammoth felt pennant represents not only the largest we've seen from this era, but the best we've seen from the Miracle Braves, a last place team that won four out of every five games for the second half of the 1914 season to win the pennant and the Series in the greatest turnaround in Major League Baseball history. Bold block lettered text spells out the terms of glory, reading, "Boston, Worlds Champions 1914." A batting figure appears at left. We were shocked that another surfaced after handling a considerably inferior example in October of 2005 that was identical but for the reversal of the red and white coloration. But the considerable damage to that first specimen is entirely absent here, with a few scattered pinpricks of moth holes to the body and minimal water staining at top left edge the extent of the condition issues. We advise interested bidders to view our enlargeable imagery on our website to understand just how gorgeous this piece really is.
