Unable to find an identity in Boston, the Redskins had originated as the “Braves” and endured sub-par seasons at both Braves Field and Fenway Park. Everything changed in 1937, however, as the club moved to the Nation’s Capital and promptly captured an NFL title. As rare as a feat of that nature, this original late-1930s pennant is perhaps the only survivor you’ll ever behold. Displayed in a showroom quality frame of 26-1/4 x 15-1/4”, this maroon felt banner features “WASHINGTON RED SKINS” in yellow appliqué. The separation of “Red” and “Skins” dates the relic to pre-1940. The felt is well preserved considering its vintage, with expected wrinkles and minor fraying at the far right point. The yellow spine and tassels remain secure and there is very minimal cracking about the otherwise full appliqué components. An absolute D.C. treasure!
