The Phillies held a naming contest in the 1943 off-season and of the 5,000 entries, seven contestants suggested Blue Jays. Only a handful of the Phillies pennant examples documented in Mike Egner's Vintage Pennant Price Guide even mention the short-lived Blue Jay moniker. This 28-1/2"-long survivor boasts fully intact appliqued graphics with minimal cracking. There is thumbtack wear in the spin corners and a partial tip.
