    Doesn't look like it was 1934, the band looks too thick.:

    The Mourning Band continues to be meaningful as long as the team remains lost.

    It's tough for sure knowing exactly when that armband pictured above was worn. It could be any one of the events mentioned. Question is: How exactly do we find out?

    I know that the Giants way back in 1909 donned the symbolic accessory (armbands) following the suicide of League President Harry Pulliam. Maybe it's from way back then?

    NYG Mourning Armband Event Info Needed

    Hello, Can anyone help me ID events that Mourning Armbands were used? I have what I believe is an unusual one that has the letters NYG. I have seen the solid black bands but was hoping to ID the event or events mine may have been used for so I can properly date it. Thanks!
