1922 is the holy grail year for Cardinals artifacts because it was the first time in history the team wore the Birds on the Bat. There are currently no known artifacts or physical jersey samples from 1922. While we have some great photography from 1922, we want more, and we want more detailed photography. We have done our best in drawing all the birds and logo from 1922, but we’re never satisfied until we can see the most detailed sample.
The three samples we are looking for are 1, the primary Birds on the Bat uniform. 2, the alternate uniform that says Cardinals with a single bird on the sleeve. And 3, the pillbox style cap with the STL emblem.
Is there a 1922 jersey out there?
Is there any super detailed photographs of the 1922 jersey?
