Found these in some of my father's old stuff. Not a big baseball fan, so I'm not too sure about whether or not to hang on to them. The Cubs pennant intrigues me the most, a little research showed that it was sold around 1910-1915, however, I don't know if there were any reproductions produced after that, so I'm trying to figure out if it's authentic. Measurements on it are 14"x34", and it looks to be in decent shape. If anyone can shed any light on these it would be greatly appreciated.

    The lack of a "MLB" is a sign that the Cub pennant MAY be old.

    There will be differences in the material on the Cubs pennant as well. I would suspect that there are reproductions out there, but I am not certain what to look for.

    Based on it being with the newer pennants and not knowing your father (collector/ huge Cubs fan, etc...) , it may be a repro.

    But to be sure, I'd take it to a sports memorabilia dealer and get an opinion on it as early baseball items are very valuable.

    Your other pennants have some collector value as well.

    Thanks Scott. My father was neither a baseball collector nor a fan, just a garage sale junkie who kept everything. I'll definitely look up a dealer (if I can find one around here) and have them take a look.
    Thanks for the insight.

    The Cubs pennant is pretty old IMO from the 20s or 30s.
