Trio of small felt pennants, each measuring approximately 2 1/2" x 4 1/2", their origin often attributed to Red Ball Sales of Chicago and Grandpa Brands Co of Cincinnati, two gum companies.  Issued around 1936-38, the pennants come in a variety of colors with a variety of players represented, the checklist not complete and consistently growing as new examples are discovered.  The "set" has some definite keys, however, among them Yankee greats Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio.  All three are represented here, each colorful and clean, in EX condition.  Three very desirable examples - arguably the most desirable of all the pennants identified as BF3.
