It’s been a rough few months for Red Sox championship items.

After the team’s 2018 AL East championship banner fell off a vehicle in Somerville and was recovered by two men, and a World Series trophy was damaged by a beer can during the victory parade, reports Sunday say a section of a banner outside Fenway depicting the 2018 World Series flag was stolen.

Red Sox spokeswoman Zineb Curran confirmed to the Globe the piece of the wrap with the 2018 flag covering a chain link fence on Ipswich Street was stolen at approximately 8 a.m. and an Everett man was responsible for the theft. The theft was immediately reported to Boston Police, Curran wrote in an email to the Globe.


The banner was later recovered in Everett, according to Everett Police Officer Michael Russell.

“We are thankful to both Boston Police and Everett Police for their assistance in this matter,” Curran said in an email to the Globe.
