Description



To locals, they were the R.I. Reds—just like Rhode Island's official state bird. To the rest of the Canadian American Hockey League (CAHL), they were the Providence Reds. Either way, the Reds debuted in 1926 and won their first Fontaine Cup championship in 1929/30, led by forward Johnny Gagnon, goaltender Mickey Murray and defenseman Art Lesieur. Two more CanAm titles came in 1931/32 and 1933/34, before the league folded in 1936, at which point the Reds joined the AHL and boasted the "Kraut Line" of Milt Schmidt, Wood Dumart and Bobby Bauer. Based on its style, we believe this 33"-long pennant hails from that key 1930s era in Reds history. Impressively well-preserved EX-MT condition with bold tomato-red appliqués on a pitch-black background—no fading whatsoever. Tassels intact.
