For Uniform Geeks Only (Ourselves Included)

Last week a couple of people from the office took the train to Baltimore to attend the National Sports Collectors Convention.  We saw some amazing memorabilia, specifically some one of a kind game worn apparel.  We'll share some of our favorites with you over the next couple of days.

First up is a fantastic piece of Cardinals memorabilia.  If you're a regular reader of our blog / facebook page, or are a loyal Cardinals fan, you probably know about the Cardinals and their one year wonder jersey.  If not, you can read about it here.

The quick synopsis is that in 1956 the Cardinals abandoned the birds on the bat logo and went with a Cardinals script.

So we were walking the show last week with a collector who we work with and he introduced us to another collector who pulled this out of his bag.

Not only is it a game worn 1956 Cardinals, it's "The Man's" game worn 1956 Cardinals jersey.

And, to make it even better, it's autographed.

Pretty cool, don't you think? We were thrilled to be able to see such a piece of baseball history.

We'll post some more stuff soon.

By the way, next year the show is in Chicago in August.  If you're a jersey or collectible fan you should definitely look into attending.  It's worth the trip.

Nice! However I'm not a fan of player autographs on the outside of the jersey. I prefer to see the artifact maintained in an original state.

I was at the convention as well...you may have seen me in the 1985 MJ All Star Game M&N on Saturday.

It was a great show - I plan on attending next year in Chicago.  Lots of history there.
