Description

If there's any remaining debate about the offensive racist imagery of Cleveland's erstwhile mascot, then this postwar relic should put it to rest once and for all. Chief Wahoo (or "Big Chief Erie," as he was marketed by the Rempel company to avoid licensing issues) is literally holding a scalped lock of hair. What more can we say? GD condition with a few small tears on reverse at the upper back (glue repaired), right knee and waist. There are also several small facial blemishes. The rare feather is firmly attached with wire.
