Circa 1910 Chicago Cubs Oversized Pennant

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $16,800

Exceedingly rare oversized Cubs pennant dating from the early 1900s. This is the ONLY example of this extraordinary oversized Cubs pennant we have ever handled and we cannot recall having seen another example at auction. The attractive design features a large illustration of a bear cub holding a bat, above and below which is lettered, respectively, "National" and "League B. B. C." The city affiliation, reading "Chicago," is displayed in fancy script lettering to the right. One of several truly great early pennants in this auction, all from the same advanced collection, each among the best pennants that we have ever offered. Ideal for display! The brown-felt pennant (34 inches), which is complete with tassels, displays a few tiny holes and only minimal crazing to the painted graphics. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $16,800
