Prison Pennants


With USA incarceration rates at an all-time high, surely there's a market for these nowadays?

From the 1950 catalog.

You know some collector out there is paying big bucks for these.

I remember a scene from the old "Police Squad!" series where one of the characters wore a college letter man's jacket: on the front was embroidered "Penn State" and on the back was embroidered "State Penn."

"Police Squad!" was one of the most intelligent television programs ever made. One had to pay attention to keep up with the program. I can't imagine why it was cancelled after 13 episodes...
