RARE 1940/1950's Silk/Rayon Cubanos Havana Sugar Kings pennant. The Sugar Kings began life in 1946 as the Havana Cubans, founded by Washington Senators scout Joe Cambria. They played in the old Class C (later Class B) Florida International League. The 1947 Cubans were recognized as one of the 100 greatest minor league teams of all time.[1] In 1954, Roberto "Bobby" Maduro bought the team, moved it to the International League, and renamed it the Sugar Kings. Several talented Cuban players and other Latinos who eventually made it to the Major Leagues donned the Sugar Kings uniform, including Luis Arroyo, Pompeyo Davalillo, Tony González, Cookie Rojas, Elio Chacón, Danny Morejón, Preston Gómez, Leo Cárdenas, and Mike Cuellar. The Sugar Kings were affiliated with the Cincinnati Red & Redlegs as well as the Washington Senators. In 1960 they were moved to Jersey City, New Jersey and renamed the Jersey City Jerseys. This pennant is from the Isabel Alvarez Estate, the famous AAGPBL womens baseball pitcher who came from Cuba to the United States. Isabel was one of the players who was depicted and inspired the movie "A League Of Their Own. It is in good condition considering its age with minor discoloring. This pennant measures 17 1/2" long. We also have a felt Cuba Pennant in very good condition from the same estate. It measires 20 1/2" long.
