Description

While flags and the Nation’s Capital have long been synonymous, these (17) vintage felt pennants pay homage to the city’s time-honored sports franchises. The colorful gonfalons present well with crack-free appliqué designs. With statuses denoted as listed in Mike Egner’s 2013 Vintage Pennant Price Guide II, highlights include: Washington Redskins: 1940s full-size (Very Rare); Washington Senators: 1930s 3/4-size (Very Rare) with original yellow tassels. Gorgeous! More on our website.

Additional highlights include:

1950s Washington Senators: a full-size green pennant with crack-free white appliqué and a white spine. This lists as “Somewhat Rare” and has a small tear in the upper left corner.

(2) 1950s Washington Senators: identical designs include: a full-size red pennant with white appliqué at roughly 95% complete (bright yellow spine and tassels completely intact); and a full-size blue pennant with white appliqué at approximately 90% complete (white spine and partially worn/frayed tassels). This version lists as “Somewhat Rare.”

(3) 1950s Washington Senators: full-size blue pennants (identical version); each with crack-free white appliqué and red spine. Presents beautifully and lists as “Somewhat Rare.”

1950s Washington Senators: 34-size blue felt pennant with crack-free white appliqué, white spine and white tassels. The body presents quite nicely, though the tassels are worn. The full-size version lists as “Rare” and this one likely carries the same status.

1960s Washington Senators: full-size blue pennant with crack-free white appliqué, white spine and white tassels. Listed as “Somewhat Rare,” this one has endured minimal fading, pilling and is missing its lower tassels.

1970s Washington Redskins: a maroon mini-pennant with gold-colored appliqué.
