Mascot Monday: Poe Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens 1998 - Present
This Monday's Mascot is Poe the Raven official mascot for the NFL's Baltimore Ravens. Gee I wonder who he could possibly be named for? Honestly I planned on having this mascot last week actually since the Ravens were in the Playoffs. When I didn't do a Mascot Monday last Monday I thought about this one and then thought I'd better wait to see how B'More does against the Patriots before posting so I don't say anything that would look awkward after a loss. Do a search on "Ray Lewis retirement countdown billboard" and you will see what I mean. Now the Ravens represent the AFC in Super Bowl 47. Anyway on to this week's mascot and card.

Poe in typical mascot bird fashion was hatched in 1998. Actually he is the third of three Raven Mascots where were "hatched" back then. His Brothers Edgar and Allan were also mascots for the team but were retired in 2008. Anyway here is Poe's Team issued post card (which I got from that big stack of mascot stuff). It is post card sized 4.25" x 5.5" I don't know the year of issue for it.

I am always on the lookout for Mascot cards. I also accept Mascot Postcards and team issued promo cards/photos of mascots.
