Looks like cloth to me, by inspection of the blue strip and the deeper blue from underneath where the tack was. That’s fading (very slight) indicative of cloth pennants. Nice one!

There must be a dozen versions of ‘54 Indians, but this one is my favorite. It might be my favorite of all “modern” (not oversized) pennants. ...

Yeah...The spine is definitely 60s.

To me, it’s a total bleach candidate. My blue on white ‘61 All Star Game and ‘62 World Series both came out fantastic. That said....your pennant; your call.

Yeah not sure exactly what it was from maybe a souvenir of some type but thought it would be an interesting share!

My favorite as well... probably the #1 item on my want-list. That pennant represents the "perfect storm" for desirability...

Incredibly cool and detailed graphics
Commemoration of AL Champs
Dated 1954
Scroll of Names (on buckskin, no less!)
Politically Incorrect (something that would never be made today)
Insanely Rare

I would even rank it ahead of many Oversized Teens Pennants in terms of its rarity and coolness factor. But unfortunately, I think it will forever be a void in my collection. So will have to live vicariously through Greg's posts, continuing to believe it's a real pennant!

Default Cool Red Sox Oversized Pennant

Was anybody else watching this one?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Vintag....m43663.l10137

I must've looked at it 40 times, and could not conclude its origin or the era from which it was made. But based on close-up shots of the felt and especially the style of embroidery, I feel this is a more modern "fantasy type" piece.

It's very well done, but just a bit too polished to be from the teens, IMO. It might be from this company, as the embroidery is also pretty slick, and the length is also slightly oversized (at 32"). See link below...

https://fangear.epicsports.com/prod/...CABEgKiT_D_BwE


At $449, it sold for a nice price, but even that aspect is perplexing...

Went way too high for a reproduction/fantasy pennant
Went way too low for an original Oversized Red Sox Pennant

Eager to hear others' thoughts, as it appears the overall market was a bit unsure of this one as well.

My vote would be modern reproduction (if not homemade) and someone just spent about $420 too much.

Agree 100%. There were only two really serious bidders. I think it could well be a homemade one off. Winning Streak makes nice pennants, but not that nice.

I think it is modern as well. It has some of the same characteristics as the SF Seals Pennant I had that turned out to be not very old. It has the same cut to the tassels, the same sort of layering of material, and there does not appear to be a way to insert a stick (i.e., it appears that stitching closes off the potential opening at the top and bottom). If I recall, we got info from another member that the Seals Pennant was made by a company called Cooperstown... or something like that.
