Gorgeous original vintage felt pennant from the 1915 Boston Red Sox season, honoring their success as American League champions. The oversized pennant measures 35″ long and 14.5″ tall, and features am image of a batter with "Red Sox" on his uniform on a red felt background, with white text: "American League Champions, 1915." The team name, "Red Sox," is displayed in bold red lettering on a white background, flanked by two sets of crossed red stockings. Complete with its rare tassels along the left edge. In very good to fine condition, with light soiling and minor wear to some of the text.
Led by Babe Ruth in his first full big league season, the 1915 Boston Red Sox topped the American League standings and went on to win the World Series. Given that this pennant honors them as AL champs, rather than World Series winners, it is likely that it was produced as a souvenir to be sold before or during the World Series itself. A classic, eye-catching vintage felt pennant featuring great graphics. From the collection of Stephen Adamson.
