1947 Jackie Robinson Brooklyn Dodgers Pennant - Extraordinary Rarity!

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $1,320

The very best of all Jackie Robinson pennants! This multicolor souvenir pennant features Jackie Robinson in a batting pose with the caption "Jackie Robinson 1st Baseman" across his chest. To the right of the illustration, the pennant reads "Brooklyn Dodgers" in white block lettering. This is widely recognized as the most desirable of all Robinson pennants, not just because of its exceptionally appealing design and rarity, but also because it can be dated to 1947 as that is the only year Robinson played first base for the Dodgers. This is an extremely significant Jackie Robinson display piece dating from his historic first year in the Major Leagues. It is also only the third example we have ever seen in forty years! This is one of the best of all vintage Jackie Robinson display pieces of any type. It is one of the best baseball pennants from any era, and would be a worthy addition and highlight in even the most advanced world-class collection. The pennant (28.25 inches in length) displays light-to-moderate crazing to the paint, a number of tiny age spots, and is missing the top set of tassels. Technically in Very Good condition, but Excellent in its overall appearance, with bright, bold colors and virtually no fading to the blue felt.
