Description

Detailed description on our website.

A tale of two competing major professional basketball leagues is told with this lot of (9) full-size pennants. Dating from the late-1960s to early-1970s, these high flying flags show ample display appeal with bold appliques and lettering on bright background fields.

 

Featured are:

 

(4) NBA Team Pennants:

 

Houston Rockets presents handsomely with bold red and black graphics on gold field, but grades as (VG-EX) due erosion of the point and pinholes in field, applique is an amusing image of a player with a rocket on his twirling a basketball, attached with two red tassels

 

Milwaukee Bucks (NM) very sharp green on snow white field, minor discoloring/wear on point, no tassels, applique is a majestic antlered deer

 

New York Knicks (NM) crisp blue and orange colors on white field, no tassels, logo is a classic Knicks logo basketball

 

San Diego Rockets (EX-MT) due to a clipped corner at top left and very minor erosion on the point, otherwise very appealing gold graphics on green field, applique is two players in action, no tassels, accent strip is white

 

(5) ABA Team Pennants:

 

Dallas Chaparrals (EX-MT with typical pinholes at ends, graphics are full white and blue on red field, no tassels, accent stripe is light cream, applique is a bird dribbling a red, white and blue ABA ball of the State of Texas

 

Kentucky Colonels (NM) very attractive with just some minor point wear, no tassels, bold blue and red graphics on bright white field, applique is team initials with ABA ball

 

Los Angeles Stars (NM) with minor rippling near center, two sets of red tassels are attached, graphics are very bold red and blue on white field, applique is city name and an ABA ball

 

San Diego Conquistadors (NM) with moderate toning of white field, graphics/lettering show full original detail, no tassels, applique is a complex image of a dribbling conquistador with map of San Diego on the helmet and an ABA basketball as the collar, this excellent example would score a grade higher if not for field toning

 

Utah Stars (NM-MT) very sharp all around with full original detail, no tassels, field is off-white, applique and lettering overlap with team name orbiting an ABA ball
