1940s-1950s U.S. Capitol Design (3)
More than any other franchise in pro sports history, the Senators are integrally linked to patriotism and love of country. Case in point: These three felt pennants transcend the National Pastime to encompass a veritable National Treasure in the form of our beloved U.S. Capitol Building with its iconic rotunda. Ideal for baseball collectors and political collectors alike! Includes: Green-and-Yellow - yellow appliqués, "Washington Senators," 28-1/4"-long and 10-3/4" at the spine, 4 pinholes at the spine and one near the tip. There is very light discoloration or staining throughout. EX appearance; Blue-and-Yellow - off-white appliqués, "Washington Senators," 29-1/2"-long and 11-3/4" at the spine, tassels as made with one missing at bottom and other very loose. There are a few vertical fold lines from previous storage. About EX; Red-and-Navy - navy appliqués, "Senators," 29-1/2"-long and 11-3/4" at the spine, tassels as made, 1 pinhole at the top of spine, 1 at the tip and 1 at the center of the pennant. Overall EX/MT.
Late 1950s Mascot Batter Design (3)
Three variations on a theme, this matching felt pennant trio features alternative color schemes and fonts for an identical design of "WASHINGTON" on the right and a slugging Senators mascot on the left. Includes: Red-and-Blue - white appliqués, 27"-long, 8-1/2" at the spine, tassels as made, two pinholes on spine and one at the tip; Green-and-Yellow - off-white appliqués, 26-1/2"-long, 8-3/4" at the spine, tassels (two have been detached), no pinholes, some minor fading or staining throughout; White-and-Red - red appliqués, 30"-long, 11-3/4" at the spine, tassels have been detached, two pinholes near the spine, five pinholes near the tip and a few spots of staining throughout. Pennants are EX in appearance.
Late 1950s Mascot Pitcher Design (3)
When reviled owner Calvin Griffith abandoned the team nickname Nationals (or Nats) in favor of Senators, he introduced the mascot politician seen here on this pennant trio. Each felt pennant reads "Washington Senators" in off-white appliqués, features the Senator image on the left and retains tassels off the spine as made. Includes: blue-and-white (EX, bottom tassels almost detached, 7 pinholes in spine, 1 near tip), red-and-yellow (blue tassels, no pinholes), navy-and-yellow (29-1/4"-long, no pinholes). The pieces measure 28"-long and 11-14" at the spine unless noted). Items are EX to EX/MT in appearance with light wear.
1950s-1960s Pitcher/Capitol Design (5)
Leave it to our consignor, Nats nut Kent Feddeman, to never have settled for just one pennant exemplar when he instead could set his sights on acquiring every known color variation! Here, the familiar franchise figure of an in-motion pitcher against a U.S. Capitol backdrop appears uniformly on the left, along with "Washington" or "Washington Senators" on the right. Pennants measure about 29-1/2" in length and 11-3/4" at the spine unless noted, and feature white or off-white appliqués. Includes: blue-and-white (26"-long, 8-3/4" at the spine, 4 pinholes on the spine and two at the tip, VG/EX); red-and-white with color logo (NM appearance); grey-and-white with color in logo (3 pinholes at the spine and 5 pinholes near the tip, VG/EX); blue-and-red with red in logo (2 pinholes at top of spine, EX/MT); teal-and-yellow with color in logo (tassels as made, NM appearance).
