The first known pennants appeared at ballparks at the turn of the century, and from 1905-1910 the first pennants bearing team or city names were produced. The first World Series pennant for the Boston Braves appeared in 1914. In the 1970's the traditional felt pennants were replaced by Synthetics which were added to the fabric, making a stronger, thinner, and less expensive pennant.
