Mint 1930s-40s Store Model “Flannel” Baseball Uniform
Out of stock
An intriguing baseball uniform that has never served a single day of field duty. It’s a so-called "flannel" comprised of the jersey and matching pants – all of which was actually fashioned in cotton. The manufacturer’s tagging (which appears in the jersey’s collar and below the elasticized waistline in the pants) cites the General Athletic Products Co. of Greenville, Ohio. Sized "M", this uniform (without a jersey number) was likely a store model intended for a youngster. For that matter, there’s yet affixed the maker’s cardboard identity and retail pricing in the collar. Clearly, the uniform has never been worn, and the only qualification to note in respect to the condition is some very minor age fading that appears broadly in the fabric. Naturally all the buttons are Mint and original (four on the jersey, and three in the pants – impressively pre-dating the "zip-up fly"). Equally appealing are the broad belt loops – again pre-dating the more modern style that appeared in the ’50s. And finally, the piping (which accentuates the pants, sleeves, and jersey button path) is pristine and, of course, perfectly applied and coordinated.
