I was wondering if anyone knows about old K-State related memorabilia, specifically pennants? I picked this up years ago at an antique mall in Illinois assuming it is a Kansas State Agricultural College pennant but I never really found out for sure. I plan on emailing the alumni association to see what they know but I figure right now they are pretty busy getting packages etc ready for the bowl game so I will wait a bit. I thought you guys might like to see it and possibly strike up a conversation in hopes that someone might know a little about it.
I did some research online but that never really produced any results. According to the KSU website, KSAC became Kansas State College of Agriculture and Applied Science (KSC) [09 Mar 1931] so it's at least 1931 or earlier. The pennant seems to be in pretty good shape for being that old; I bet it could tell some stories. It seems to be well made, like many things back in the old days, everything is stitched on. The Wildcat is leather and stitched on there was well. Its made by the Chicago Pennant Company, but that's all I know. I have seen other pennants online of different universities and sports teams made by Chicago Pennant Company but I have not been able to find much more information on them, or even seen any other K.S.A.C. related items.
Just thought I would share and see if anyone had any information. Thanksi3.photobucket.com
