Description

In 1943, Dupont heir Robert Carpenter, Jr. took over the unsuccessful Philadelphia Phillies franchise. In attempts to break the clubís losing ways, he asked fans to vote for a new nickname, and a Blue Jay logo with blue and gold colors was adopted. However, Johns Hopkins students vehemently protested the embracement of their own logo, and the Blue Jays were put to rest in 1946. Presented is a collection of (10) items that document this schizophrenic era in Philadelphia baseball history. The highlight of this collection is a rare pennant that portrays the short-lived logo and color change. The piece grades (VG) with moderate creasing on the screen-printed designs, light soiling and a fully formed point. Other items include a Mitchell and Ness replica jersey (like new, size M), green kidís hat (VG-EX), blue and yellow kidís beanie (VG), (2) Phillies/Blue Jays buttons with ribbons (EX-MT and VG-EX), Phillies/Blue Jays pinback, fountain pen and mechanical pencil (EX) and replica patch.
