The St. Louis Browns relocated to Baltimore in 1954 and based upon the player names displayed here the pennant appears to date from that inaugural year. Complete with tassels. 29 inches. Ex-Mt. 4) Circa 1950s Baltimore Orioles pennant. Complete with tassels. 28 inches. Ex-Mt. Total: 4 pennants. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
