eBay: 1963 Dodgers Photo Pennant

What's better than a vintage pennant that celebrates the World Championship of your favorite club? How about a pennant that also features a full color photo of the team embedded within it.
Here is a scarce pennant from 1963-1964 that features a full team photo of the 1963 World Championship Dodgers. These do not come up for sale very often and usually sell for a premium when they do. Considering this items great condition I'm surprised it didn't sell for more. It sold yesterday at $138.15.
