Best Answer

The pennant is another term for winning your league championship, either ALCS or NLCS. This comes from back when the MLB had fewer teams, 8-16 teams total. They would only have a championship series instead of having so many rounds in the playoffs like today. When you win the American League Championship Series or National League Championship Series.

How do you clean a old baseball pennant?

Restoration to any collectible should be left to the expert that has experience with that type of work. Depending on how bad it is it might be better off left alone, or if it is just a little dusty you might carefully take a dust buster to it. Be careful around the printing as to not cause any cracking, work in one direction, and be sure to secure the pennant from being sucked up. I have heard of collectors taking pennants to the dry cleaner but I would still be cautious on using a dry cleaner that I could trust, and talk to. Use a dry cleaner that doesn't send the work out, and explain the fact that it is a collectible. Anything that you do yourself start with a small area that might not be as noticeable, and proceeded with caution with the knowledge that you could be destroying it. Sometimes people will trim down a pennant to rid it of the frying or other flaws like a flat tip (point) Caused by being pinned up and ripped off. Doctored pennants, a term used to describe a pennant that has been altered to cover up a flaw, is a practice that is frowned upon among the collecting community, and could sell for less than a pennant with the flaws it was meant to cover up.
