1940'S ST. LOUIS CARDINALS PENNANT. 11"X28". SUPER COLORS. THICK SOFT FELT. NO PINS HOLES. SHARP TIP. A REAL BEAUTY. Near Mint Condition and I've received continuous offers that have topped at $1200....The quality ranking is an 8.5 which is ‘Excellent Condition’ but not quite Mint…. Mint is 9.5 and 10...

I know It would take a ridiculous amount of money for me to sell this. At least 5000. Seem High? But that's what you can do when the item out weighs the money. Once its gone; money will be spent and pennant will be gone for good.
I also found out that not very many of this particular pennant style was created in 1940. There are 2 close variations that were mass produced but both are different from mine. (First pennant far left) First Closely related Pennant was White Background w/ Red birds; differnt style birds and lettering. (picture Knock Off #1). The other was a Red Background with w/White birds a little closer to mine but this one also has a different looking birds and the lettering (picture Knock off #2) Are you confused yet?? I was at first; but when I saw the 3 different styles all lined up I then was able to see the slight differences. Please look for yourself the knock offs are worth 75 to 150 in Good to Excellent Condition. Mine has been appraised at 500 to 750.... However it's always only worth what someone will pay. My higest offer stands at 1200 dollars. The rumor is only 500 were made of this style..

    All 3 above were created in 1940. Mine on far left has been looked at by 3 different auction sites and all 3 agree mine (Pennant first shown) is the rare 1940 limited.
    The following 2 were also made in 1940 but both mass produced and only valued in Excellent Cond at 75 ~ 150 dollars.
    I'm getting it certified at the end of December... Not only 500 made but I have the best that's been seen in a very long time..
