Our Newest Find:
Uniform from 1920!
This old baseball uniform was donated to our museum recently by Troy Suhr. He had this in his possession for a number of years, and recently found it in a pile of old furniture pieces. After researching, it is clear this was a uniform from Walnut's semi-pro team of the 1920s, Caddock's Colts. The back shows the sponsor for this uniform, Motor Sales Co., which was in existence from 1920-22. When comparing the pin-striped uniform to the 1921 Colts team picture, it is clear this was a Colts uniform!
