The Chicago Cubs own the longest streak of futility in World Series history, having won their last championship in 1908. Since that title, even National League pennants have been few and far between, with the last one coming in 1945. Sixteen years prior to that, the North Siders faced the Philadelphia Athletics in a fruitless, five-game series, and fans at Wrigley Field purchased felt pennants such as this rarity that we have not seen until now. It measures 22.5" x 8" and reads: "SOUVENIR OF CUBS WORLD SERIES CHICAGO 1929." A very small piece is missing from the very tip of the pennant; otherwise it's in VG condition with a Bloom Brothers tag on the back.
