Description



Prior to the 1960s expansion era, New York City was the center of the baseball world. The Giants won 17 pennants and 5 World Series through the 1950s, and the Yankees won 24 pennants and an incredible 18 World Series during the same period. The Dodgers kept pace fairly well with 13 pennants, but managed only 1 World Series victory, which came in 1955. Celebrate Brooklyn's singular championship, with this c.1947-1955 Dodgers National League Champions pennant lot of (2), with:


Tough 3/4-size red pennant with "Them Bums" legend and Ebbets Filed game scene applique (GD-VG) with moderate wear including several small moth holes/pin holes. The applique has fortunately managed to remain free of holes, while two of the letters have taken small hits. The red field color is fairly bold, and overall this seldom seen example emits abundant period appeal. While several versions of 1940s-1950s Dodgers pennants sport "Dem Bums" or just "Bums" legends, the offered pennant with "Them Bums" spelled out appears to be a unique variation. 


Full-size green pennant with "Bum" clown applique and a team scroll listing the guys responsible for the Brooklyn Dodgers crowning moment (FR-GD) due to moderate soiling and erosion of the date "1955" near the point. The other graphics present decently and are worthy of display.
