Cool Find in Cooperstown

Recommended Posts

My father and I took an impromptu day trip up to Cooperstown today because, you know, why not (there are benefits to living in the City), and noticed something very cool as a uniform buff (my father was unimpressed): The first ever (according to the Hall) baseball uniform, worn by the Baraboo (Wisconsin) Base Ball Club. I figured this would be appreciated here, and that it wouldn't really fit in MLB Changes 2017.

It's a standard old style jersey, complete with a bib bearing a pale-ish blue old English B (I'm not the best photographer, plus glass in the way). The cap is plain blue, with a white band of what I believe was leather across the lower crown.

 

Just thought it was an interesting piece of uniform history to share with y'all. Are the first uniforms in other sports known? Would love to see.

 

As a bonus, some uniforms that don't get a lot of coverage here: the All American Girls Professional Baseball League.

These are pretty awesome.  I know as uniform geeks the idea of using a bib is definitely frowned upon, see BYU football in the 90's.
