Vintage Toronto Flannel Uniform Attributed to Alex Stewart
Out of stock
Town teams sprouted up in the 1900s and gave rural areas a sense of pride. Workers played baseball on the weekends for their employers. Countless ballplayers found work because of their skill on the diamond. This complete Toronto flannel uniform was worn by Alex Stewart Sr. between 1910-11. “TORONTO” and the team’s emblem are sewn directly to the jersey in black felt material. Spalding manufacturer’s labels and a swatch identifying these as Stewart’s are sewn in the collar and waistline of the pants. Stewart was a mason who played for the Masonic Lodge team in the Ohio region. A vintage team photo will accompany this offering. The pants have soiling marks. We don’t advise our readers to wear this heavy-duty flannel jersey, unless you want to lose some weight.
