Hand-crafted from genuine wool baseball flannel. Each shirt is researched, and carefully re-created using the same materials and production techniques as the original. Lettering on most models is wool felt. Some of the more expensive models (for example our 1938 Baltimore Orioles shirt) feature manual chain-stitch embroidery. The design is directly embroidered into the garment to produce a brilliant effect.Sleeve patches were another important component of vintage jerseys. They often celebrated local events like World’s Fairs, or anniversaries like baseballs official centennial in 1939. During wartime, ballclubs would display patriotic shields, like the Stars & Stripes or Health patch. You will find all of these faithfully re-created here.Jersey NumbersJersey prices include numerals, except where noted (most teams did not wear numbers prior to 1930.) We have chosen a standard number for all of our shirts, which is listed in the text for that model. Please note that many shirts are made to order, and take one to six weeks for delivery. All jerseys are crafted in the USA, using American materials.History of the Minor LeaguesThe story of professional baseball does not begin and end with the Major Leagues. Until the early 1950’s, “big league” ball was limited to sixteen teams playing in only ten cities – all but one east of the Mississippi River. For the rest of North America, in towns as large as Los Angeles and as small as Mineral Wells, Texas, Minor League baseball was the game.In 1901, seven minor leagues banded together to form the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues. This umbrella group became the governing body of professional baseball, setting standards and guiding the Minors’ relationship with the Majors. At its peak in 1949, the NAPBL had 59 member leagues.The most important leagues throughout history have been the International League, based in the East, the American Association in the Midwest, The Pacific Coast League, The Texas League, and the Southern Association. Some of the dozens of other minor leagues have names that read like a travelogue of North America: The Cotton State
