The only MLB team to still wear a chain stitched jersey.
Easily my favorite MLB logo. I have a 40s-style Cards hat with the birds and the bat from the late, lamented Cooperstown Ballcap Co. and it’s one of my favorite garments. The chain stitching here is absolutely lovely.
Here’s a classic baseball cap I’d like to wear. Fidel Castro pitches an exhibition game for “Los Barbudos,” in 1959, shortly after he came to power. The team was named after the nickname of his Cuban revolutionary group, meaning “the bearded ones.” Fidel was never much of a ballplayer, but he’s always been a lover of baseball.
