Sadly, I have no idea what became of my pennant. Two like it sold recently on eBay, both for much more than I can justify paying. What lost piece of memorabilia from your past do you wish you still had? Maybe you can do a post of your own.

Lost But Not Forgotten
I had a pennant just like this one hanging above my bed as a kid. In my memory it was celebrating the Hawks Stanley Cup win in 1961. Coming across this one on eBay just the other day I realize my error. In the 1966-67 NHL season the Black Hawks out paced the the rest of the five teams with 94 points. The second place Canadiens finished 17 points back. Unfortunately, and is often the case, regular season superiority did not translate into a championship as the Hawks lost to the eventual champs the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Semi-Finals four games to two.
