Description

To our knowledge, this particular design has never previously been sold by a major auction house, making it even rarer than the other 1915 Phillies pennants that have sold for as much as $4,000. Indeed, Mike Egner's Vintage Pennant Price Guide II documents just three distinct versions of '15 Phils examples, and we count a mere four times that any have reached the auction block. The offered survivor is 3/4 length, measuring 21-1/2", and its appliquéd batting figure and text ("NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS PHILLIES 1915") are impressively intact. Corners show wear commensurate with age and usage (including minor felt loss), yet the majority of the surface is quite miraculously well-preserved for its delicate medium and vulnerable size.
