Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>I went to the National with this as my number one priority. Alas, there were none to be found. I did however, acquire this one last week from the original owner. As you can see, I'm on a pennant kick. <br /><br /><br /><img src="http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q304/mjkm90/IMG_0323.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Thanks fellas. It's an ebay pick up. It's actually not a big pennant 8x24 not including the tassles. Ive seen it a few times in major auctions and once or twice over the years on ebay. I just love the pennant on it and the names. Something special about Gehrig and Dimaggio on the same piece...class.

Posted By: <b>Shawn Chambers</b><p>Mike,<br /><br />That pennant is beautiful!! Man, be great to see that everyday. Gehrig is my favorite player of all time and it is cool to see his name juxtaposed with Dimaggio...what a beauty!<br /><br />Congrats on a great pickup.<br /><br />Shawn

Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Shawn. You should consider this pinback of Gehrig.<br /><br /><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/1937-LOU-GEHRIG-N-Y-YANKEES-PIN-BUTTON-WITH-PENNANT_W0QQitemZ200142325808QQihZ010QQcategoryZ50 128QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/1937-LOU-GEHRIG-N-Y-YANKEES-PIN-BUTTON-WITH-PENNANT_W0QQitemZ200142325808QQihZ010QQcategoryZ50 128QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem</a>

Posted By: <b>Shawn Chambers</b><p>Oh my brain considered it...but my wallet threatened my life!! Unfortunately, there is no way I could ever afford it, but it, too, is a great looking pennant.

Posted By: <b>Joe K.</b><p><br />Fantastic pennant Mike! Congrats on the pick up.<br /><br />I just got back from vacation. The family and I were in Disney World for a week. My two girls (Emily 9 and Sara 5) loved it. I loved it too! We left last Saturday and just got back this evening - so I am doing a lot of catch up on email and ebay. I didn't bring my laptop so I went a whole week with no email and no ebay - ouch!!<br />

Posted By: <b>Mark Steinberg</b><p>Mike: <br /><br />Congrats on this great pennant. This has always been one of my favorites. They also made a nearly identical one, which simply proclaims the Yankees as "Winners!" (with no names). You definitely got the better of the two, but the other one has a real charm about it as well. I have both (framed), and as I recall, there is a cloth tag sewn to the back of both. <br /><br />Have you seen Hunt Auctions' current Lot #171a... the 1936 Yankees Champs Pennant? Its another nice one, but I am not sure it really depicts Ruth (and their estimate is awfully high).

Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>I did see that pennant, and don't believe it to be Ruth. I also agree the estimate is quite high. The Champions pennant is interesting, but when I've seen it at with dealers the price has been rediculous. There was a nice Yankee pennant on ebay a couple weeks ago that Dave Bushing won that I wish I had gone higher on. Oh well. Any Cubs pennants in your collection Mark?

Posted By: <b>Chris Counts</b><p>That's a real beauty ... I couldn't help but notice that Red Ruffing and Tommy Henrich are missing, while journeymen/bit players like Roy Johnson and Pat Malone are included on it ...
