Lincoln High School Baseball 1911

And now for a case study in baseball fashions.
One of my favorite blogs, Uni Watch
studies the fine art of
the uniform very closely. This 1911 image from Seattle’s Lincoln High School
can tell us a bit about early baseball wear in the area. First note the stylishly popped light collar along with the sleeve and pant piping setting off the rest of the dark colored uni.
The “Skull Style” cap is also in keeping with this scheme.
One boy’s collar is darker and lacks flare while the jolly fellow on
the left has a slightly different cap style. The matching dark stockings are there but the stirrups seem to be missing. All in all, a classic baseball uniform.
Richie Sexson, if you’re reading this, don’t be afraid to show some stocking
. Click on the image for a larger view. Oh, and who is that boy in the stands
? Team manager perhaps?
