No point in me starting a collection of these now.

Will never compare to the bad ass stuff you have. Lol.

Amazing man! Thanks for sharing!

Coach...most are pre WWII, but a few from the 40s . The oversized framed piece is oversized 16"x34" and is from the teens. It is NOT too late for you to begin collecting these. While they are tough to find, they aren't impossible (other than my oversized which is the only known example in the hobby).

Cheers,
Mike

Here is a pennant guide I contributed to. It is well executed and a tremendous reference for both baseball and football pennants.

I have a TON of Tigers pennants as well if you would like to see those. The Tigers, Cubs, Athletics, Yankees, Cardinals, and Pirates created the greatest variety, highest quality, and best executed memorabilia (pennants, pinbacks, figurals, etc) of all the major league teams primarily pre 1960.

A dear friend of mine whom I will try to get to join here, has what is widely considered the best pennant collection on earth. His figural collection is among the best as well. Is there a place here to post links to collectors websites? I have a few I guarantee you will want to see for both the images and education.

Wow! 7-day waiting period gets waived and you waste no time sharing ... thanks.

PS: Thanks for the next to last Cubs pennant, brought a smile to my face -- for all of the wrong, juvenile reasons.

Lol PO, the two cubs getting it on "bear style". Yeah, my mind is in the toilet too.

Great pennants though. I have a small stack. Not sure if they are worth anything though. The 59 Whitesox pennant might be worth something. And I have a few Dodger playoff pennants from the late 70s.

For $350, I could probably buy video of real bears or people in bear suits ... and I wouldn't have to worry about my kids putting their sticky little hands all over it.

There are Six different White Sox pennants from 1959. They range from $75-$200. Which do you have?

Super sick!

Where do you buy these from? Local dealers? Ebay? etc?

You coming in town for the Cubs Convention? Would love to talk collecting with ya!

Hi Coach,

I get many of them via trades, a ton from ebay, some from national dealers across the country and very very few from local sources. I have a broad base of collecting contacts that I buy, sell, and trade through. The best way to find them is to let others know you are looking for them, willing to trade, and able to pay for the right pieces. The greatest resource and most fulfilling element of this hobby are the relationships I have built with other collectors. The knowledge gained is amazing. The scope of some of the collections I have seen is startling.

I'm not going to the Cubs convention. I focus on pre 1950 memorabilia and that isn't the focus of that event. I attend the National Sports Memorabilia Convention each year, including this past summer in Chicago. That is a GREAT place to build relationships.

Coach...I love to talk collecting, so if you would like to chat some time, shoot me an email with your phone# and I'll give you a call some time.

Cheers,
Mike

Probably the best advice I can give each of you is to begin looking out for others and ask them to do the same for you. Some of my best pieces have come from friends who give me a contact they made or a link to a piece they have found that they think I may like. I give up auctions and sources frequently for buddies who love or need certain pieces more than I do. We send each other links to auctions stating "I thought you might want this". We always give the finder first shot at the piece. For example if the piece is of interest to both of us, I will reach out and say "I'm going hard after this piece unless you really want it. What are you thinking?" Or we will ask how high the other is willing to go so we don't bid each other up. If a steller piece is on ebay more than one of us will have seen it and this saves us money. You would be surprised how many emails I have gotten from guys saying "I found a person who has a killer pennant/ trophy/ pinback/ etc. that you might want". I always give them credit for the find then will work to find something for them.

It's a lot of fun to wheel and deal like this and it really expands your reach.

Regarding the Huge Cubs pennant I bought today...I lucked into via an online antique dealer discussion. It really was a needle in a haystack moment, but I'll take it.
