As my collection is out there for most collectors or 49er fans to see, I've noticed that there are 3 specific types of 49er pennants that would help me to finalize my 49ers pennant collection (at least get it really, really close to being complete).

Here are the 3 outstanding 49er pennants that I'm still looking for.

#1 - 1960's Scripted-San Francisco Pennant
This circa 1960's single bar 49ers helmet pennant is something that I took for granted that I had.  I have so many variants of this pennant, but realized that I don't have the non-variant...the original scripted "San Francisco".  So if someone sees one available for sale, please email me.

#2 - 1981/82Superbowl XVI Champions-San Francisco Pennant
This 1981/82 Superbowl XVI is one that has eluded me for many years.  I actually had an opportunity to purchase one years ago, but chose to wait until later but, unfortunately, I haven't seen one since.  Again, if anyone knows of where I could pick one of these rare beauties up, I'd be extremely thankful for the lead.

#3 - 1953 12 - NFL Teams Pennant
I haven't seen one of these for sale, nor have I passed on one for later purchases, instead I found this rare pennant on a collector's "worth" site.  This is one of those pennants that I would like because it does reference the 49ers and 11 other teams and the cities they're from.

The pennant highlights the Eastern & Western Conference teams as listed below;
Eastern Conference
New York Giants
Washington Redskins
Philadelphia Eagles
Cleveland Browns
Chicago Cardinals
Pittsburgh Steelers

Western Conference
San Francisco 49'ers
Baltimore Colts
Los Angeles Rams
Chicago Bears
Detroit Lions
Green Bay Packers

It was easy to find the date of this pennant by the teams in the league at that time.  Plus, two Chicago teams was easy to place the date for this glorious pennant.

#4 - 1950's 12" Mini - Team Name Pennant
I found pictures of these Very Rare 1950's NFL team name Mini Football Pennants.  These pennant measures 12 inches long, made of light weight felt and feature the group of NFL teams that were part of the league during the 1950's.  So, I can only assume that the 49ers would have had some type of small team name pennant like one of these.

Again, if anyone can send me to any of these four (4) styles of pennants I would be greatly indebted.

Go Niners ! ! !
