Tailored for industrial league play during the 1940s, this baseball ensemble is comprised of durable fabric inherent to diamond apparel of the era. Includes:
Jersey a gray flannel button-down garment with “ROCHESTER” arched across the chest in blue felt and red-and-blue piping lining the button path and sleeve endings. Within the collar, a “General Athletic Products Co.” label is accompanied by a “Sanforized” tag and an identification tag whose contents have faded. There are four holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventilation.
Pants gray flannel leg wear with four belt loops, a four-button fly and a right-side back pocket. Blue-and-red striped piping lines the outer legs. Within the cotton-lined waistband, a flap tag denotes size “34.”
The items exhibit heavy wear with separation on the “E” and “S” felt characters on the jersey and fraying about the jersey’s piping. Additionally, the pant leg openings show an expected loss of elasticity.
