    Also, I asked my uncle about it but his memory did not recall an uncut "B" but as we know, memories fade. He claims to have an original cap the he purchased at Gerry Cosby's in NYC in 1953. He and my Father went to the store to purchase caps, he bought the Dodger cap and my Father, who had Dodger caps already, purchased a St. Louis Cardinal's cap since he absolutely adored Stan "The Man" Musial. he also had a three fingered Stan Musial glove that he wore during his own ball playing days.

    As a side note to that, I don't know if anyone here would remember an old Brooklyn sandlot team called the Mustangs, but my Father and his brothers played for the Mustangs throughout the 1940's and early 1950's. From what my Dad told me, there were many italian social clubs back in the old neighborhood of the north side of Brooklyn, one of which was the Mustangs. They had a baseball team and played other clubs in various leagues during the period. How I wish I had that glove!

      Do you think it is the same as my own Roman Pro that I submitted here? It looks very very close if not exactly like it.

      Lou: Like I said, I bought it many years ago thru the mail from Roman Pro. 1970's.................was GREAT for about 20 years, then it got really dirty and purplish..........I should have done what you did (buy a FEW), but who knew???? I thought I would always be able to purchase a great replica Brooklyn cap whenever I wanted more........boy was I wrong!

        I like this one, but it was from BEFORE the scripted "Dodgers" on the front of the home jerseys......

          I also like this cap, but it too was from BEFORE the team had "Dodgers" scripted across the jersey.

            ...you're a regular riot!!!

            That looks very similar to my own old Sonnett shown here:


            Is yours a Musial?

              pete,

              Those two caps you posted, how close to the originals in terms of logos and colors?

              i have seen these offered but I always passed on the buying opportunity. These, I guess were from the uniforms prior to 1936?

                It's a four-finger Musial. I own a few old gloves. One from the '30's. I collect (to WEAR) old caps, uniforms, etc. (jackets, too). Here's an old-time Dodger jacket (with leather sleeves).........

                  How close these caps are to the originals is anybody's guess (all the old pictures are black and white). Here's 2 more from waaaay back.....

                      Sweet jacket - very nice. I'd be proud to walk around with that!

                      I have seen pictures of originals that had tan or light brown sleeves - not sure why they used brown - had nothing to do with the team colors.

                      Nice jacket, pete. Wear it with pride, my Friend.

                          Nice caps, too. My only white Dodgers cap is that Roman Pro purchased at the same time as the blue ones form the same vendor at that flea mkt.

                              Here's a shot of Shotgun Shuba with my wife Linda. She's wearing a rhinestoned Brooklyn satin jacket and George is wearing a very old-time cap.

                                yes, that green one - what were they thinking?

                                Still a nice collection of our Dodgers history. Nice to see that there are others like me who still care and think about this team.

                                Can I even say "our" Dodgers history as I was not even born prior to the theft of the team???? Yet and still, I have so much of an oral history in my brain and my heart, it as if I lived the agony and the ecstacy along with him (my Dad).
