1957 Oregon State Rose Bowl Pennant

This 1957 OSU Rose Bowl pennant is a slight variation from this earlier pennant I posted.  Besides being orange with black writing (the earlier version was black with orange writing), there are a couple other small differences.  First, the picture showing the beaver and the Oregon State text do appear to be the same on both pennants.  However, the picture and writing on the left side of the pennant, showing the roses and the stadium, are slightly different.  Notice the bottom the black pennant, below the stadium, has two roses, while this pennant shows three roses.  Both have one rose above the stadium, but the leaves are slightly different.  And the stadium is a little smaller in this orange version than in the black version.  Also, above the stadium, the “Rose Bowl” writing on the black pennant is in cursive, while on the orange version it’s traditional letters.  Lastly, the orange pennant also has four different colors printed on it while the black one just has two. I still believe these are both from the 1957 Rose Bowl game, but maybe they were just printed at different locations, or the orange one was a little more money!?
