The photos and uniform here are from 1916 or 1920. The Giants wore a pinstriped jersey with a Blackletter/Old English letter on the sleeve. The letter is a G for Giants.
These uniforms and logos are best approximations based on a scarce number of photographs. Years, colors, logos, and uniform styles have been approximated. We welcome any additional photography and newspaper accounts that will help bring the authentic St. Louis Negro League baseball uniforms back to life.

Which one is Oscar Charleston?
i’m not certain if Oscar Charleston is in this photograph or not. Comparing a headshot of Oscar Charleston with the other men in this photo, it doesn’t appear that any of these men are him, but admittedly I’m not the greatest at ID’ing faces. Charleston played for the Giants for only one season in 1921. If this photo is from 1916 or 1920, then Charleston is not in this photo. If he is here, then it would put a definitive date of 1921 on the photo.
