Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Any new treasures? This is my new favorite pennant (from my collection at least). The milky portion of the image is from schmutz on the lens...darn kids.<br /><br /><img src="http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q304/mjkm90/IMG_0215.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>That's a nice one Mike...and one I don't think I've seen before. How many different prewar Tigers pennants does that make for you now?<br /><br />I've had quite a good run here lately, but nothing has shown up in the mailbox yet. All I have are the ebay photos.....<br /><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/net54-4.jpg"><br /><br />Antelope park was the home to the Western League team from Lincoln pre 1947<br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/net54-3.jpg"><br /><br />This is one I've been waiting patiently for after getting sniped out on the last one.<br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/net54-2.jpg"><br /><br />This is only the second poster/handbill I've ever seen for the NI and it is by far the latest. I have found no literature at all on the NI team from the 1930s.<br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/net54-1.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Rob Dewolf</b><p>There aren't a lot of things that I would say I'm an "authority" on, but I've seen a heck of a lot of different Cleveland Indians pennants over the years. I'd never seen this one before this week, so I was thrilled to pick it up on eBay. Not a great photo; it's the one that was in the listing.<br /><br /><img src="http://i24.ebayimg.com/02/i/000/a7/6b/9d2b_1.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>That makes 4 maybe 5 Dan. Not sure of the date of a couple. They have early characteristics, but who knows for sure unless you see a photo of one that is dated. I am LOVING pennants right now and the Tigers seem to have had a wider variety than most teams. I would say Cleveland is up there options available as well. Does anyone know a collector who is an "authority" on pennants? D. Bushing seems to know almost every niche of memorabilia and has written short articles in MEERS about pennants. I would give my right arm to see the personal collections of some of the premier pennant collectors. <br /><br />I almost went after that pin Dan. However, I thought (knew)you would appreciate it more than I.<br /><br />Rob, I don't recall seeing that piece before. Are you an Indians pennant collector only? Most of my pennant efforts of late have been Tigers and an occasional Yankees but I also have NY Giants, Cards, W Sox, and a few others. Only one Indian, but it's a common 60s piece.

Posted By: <b>Rob Dewolf</b><p>Mike,<br /><br />I collect all types of pre-1960 Cleveland Indians memorabilia, but I have a particular fondness for -- in no particular order -- pennants, pencil clips, opening-day ticket stubs and figural display pieces.<br /><br />I rarely pick up pennants anymore because I don't often come across one I don't have, plus there's the space issue of displaying them. I've got 4 1/2 walls of my basement dedicated to Indians pennants, and I don't want to devote any more space to them. When I first started to collect pennants, I would pursure all the color variations for each different style. I quickly came to the conclusion that that wasn't practical, unless I wanted to store a lot of pennants in boxes, which I thought defeats the purpose of collecting in the first place. As it is, the only ones on display are the unusual ones and styles that reflect All-Star Games, World Series or other special events.<br /><br />I really love pennants. Just wish they were easier to ship and display.

Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Rob, how does a fella go about seeing a few photos of your basement walls. I would greatly appreciate a peak at your pennant collection.

Posted By: <b>Aaron M.</b><p>I just received what may be the single highlight of my collection (and a piece that I've been looking for since I first saw it on the Incurable Collector segment on Bill Mastro way back in 2001) from the recent Sotheby's auction. I'm having a custom shelf built to display it. <br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1184118714.JPG"> <br /><br /><br />I also just picked up a long sought-after original Mickey Mantle Hartland tag on E-Bay to add to my Mantle Hartland statue. <br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1184118896.JPG"> <br /><br /><br />And lastly, I picked up this terrific 1914 Braves pin on E-Bay (going to get it framed this weekend hopefully). <br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1184118977.JPG"> <br /><br /><br />A very busy month for me!

Posted By: <b>jim</b><p>Hi Clint,I had never seen it before either. It was in an REA (or Mastro) auction last year buried in along with 100 or so other premiums. I knew there was a large premium of WaJo without his shirt and the byline talking about his expensive arm, but I never knew about this one. SO I had to pay dearly to get this premium. But it was worth it. Some of the other large premiums have a numbering system (1 - 7) on the left hand side. I just picked up Matty, Wagner and one other like this. Interesting, the Matty is completely different pose from the other large type Matty I have, while the Wagner is the same pose (but different first name listed) as the non-numbered Wagner. When i get some time, I should post the non-numbered and numbered large type premiums. The Federal League large type premiums are also extremely hard to find. Great stuff though!

Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Aaron, I have admired that trophy for years. It's changed hands a couple times as you noted. It is stunning.<br /><br />Thanks for posting.

Posted By: <b>Clint</b><p>Jim, would love to see some more of those premiums if you get a chance. That White Sox one is pretty nice as well.

Posted By: <b>Greg Theberge</b><p>Great Pinback of the Royal Rooters Aaron.<br /><br />I had looked at that one. Fortunately for my wallet (there's only fleas in there after the last REA anyway), it's from 1914 and for the Braves and not the Sox.<br /><br />Greg<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Jeremy W.</b><p>But I am attempting to post my first scan & had a question. Does anyone know if this Joe Jackson mini decal bat had the black tape on the handle when it was new? Thanks in advance for any help/info you can lend. Jeremy<br /><br /> P.S. I love that Gibson photo...very nice.<img src="http://s206.photobucket.com/albums/bb115/jpcwscans/th_JoeJacksonMiniDecalBat.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>I didn't know you could make a scan that small. <img src="/images/wink.gif" height=14 width=14> As for your question I don't believe I've ever seen a mini decal bat with tape on it.

Posted By: <b>Jeremy W.</b><p>I didn't know it could be done either. I'm struggling with this posting scans thing. Back to the drawing board!

Posted By: <b>Clint</b><p>I've seen a few mini bats with tape on them. They have all been Joe Jackson bats. There was a cork grip mini bat of Babe Ruth sold a few months ago also.

Posted By: <b>Jeremy W.</b><p>That leads me to believe that the bat did, in fact, come with the tape on the handle when it was made. I was thinking that I saw a Jackson bat auctioned by Lelands some time ago that had the tape.
