This is an original vintage Washington Senators pennant, from the 1960s-1970s. The felt pennant has a vibrant red field, white script that reads "Washington Senators", and a printed Senators emblem. The emblem shows a Senators baseball player pitching a ball with the iconic Capitol dome as his backdrop. “The Senators” is printed above him in decorative arching script. The hoist end has a white felt border with navy attachment ties.
The Washington Senators baseball team was one of the American League's eight charter franchises. The club was founded in Washington, D.C. in 1901. For a time, from 1911 to 1933, the Senators were one of the more successful franchises in Major League Baseball. The team's rosters included Baseball Hall of Fame members Goose Goslin, Sam Rice, Joe Cronin, Bucky Harris, Heinie Manush, and one of the greatest players and pitchers of all time, Walter Johnson.
Pennant is in good condition. Full size pennant. The point and edges are sharp and the felt is stiff. Logo and lettering bright and show no serious signs of flaking or discoloration.
The pennant is archivally presented floating on dark fabric mat in a custom-built black and gold wooden frame.
