1916 BF2 Ferguson Bakery Large Photo Prize Pennant and Small Felt Pennant (2)

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $4,930.00

The 1916 BF2 Ferguson Bakery pennants are one of the most unusual, interesting, and displayable issues of the era. These pennants (each 5.5 inches tall) were issued as a premiums with Ferguson Bakery products and are designed with a photograph of a given star affixed to a felt pennant with the player's name and team identified below. Far less well known are a related series of gigantic BF2 pennants, which are designed exactly in the same manner as the small BF2s, but are an incredible twenty-three inches in height! These large pennants were available as special premiums, with one pennant available in exchange for fifty coupons from five-cent loaves of bread. These are extremely rare. Only five different players have ever been checklisted to date. Presented is a very rarely offered gigantic BF2 display pennant featuring Bill Donovan of the Highlanders. The large pennant is accompanied by a sample of a small BF2 of Clyde Milan, which is ideal for comparison of scale and for display. It may be a long time before we see another giant BF2. We have seen only five or six examples during the past thirty-five years. The large pennant of Donovan is in Very Good condition. The small pennant of Milan is in Excellent condition. Total 2 pennants. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $4,930.00
