Among the items Walter Alston brought back from his successful tour of Japan in 1956 is this stunning, colorful, 36 3/4" full color pennant. The oversized felt pennant bears lettering that reads; "Welcome Dodgers 1956 Tokyo" in raised felt along with the Brooklyn “B” laurel encompassed logo. Japanese characters also adorn this rare beauty. Alston clearly favored the pennant as evidenced by its careful storage and remarkable state of preservation. The pennant is in NM-MT condition.
LOA from the Alston family.
