Good morning! The day before Thanksgiving is usually a mix of hectic (people traveling) and casual (people knocking off work early), so I thought I’d keep things light with a look at some cool vintage uniforms I recently spotted on eBay and Etsy. Let’s start with this 1920s baseball uniform with the Michigan Bell Telephone logo! Not sure if Bell sponsored the team or if it was a factory/company team. Either way, what a beaut — love that dark-grey pinstriped look, love the half-sleeves, and of course love that chest insignia. Chef’s kiss!
Here’s another uniform with the Bell logo, this time for a women’s basketball team:
Next up, check out this magnificent 1930s basketball uniform for Bliss & Laughlin Steel’s company team:
I love the snugly nested lettering and numbering on this South Carolina hoops uni, along with the two-tone combo:
Here’s a gorgeous 1940s vest baseball jersey for Cazenovia College, with some serious vertical arching across the chest:
I don’t know if this next one was sponsored by the local prison, or if it was a team comprised of prison employees, or maybe even a team of inmates, but it’s a doozy regardless:
Oh man, look at this old Knights of Columbus basketball jersey with the KofC logo on the chest:
This 1950s basketball jersey for the 7th & Willow Hotel has what’s got to be the most severe vertically extended typography I’ve ever seen on a uniform:
Last but definitely not least, check out this amazing “Halfback in Training” toddler’s uniform, in Uni Watch colors:
Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did. Fun stuff, and a nice way to ease into the holiday weekend.
