The 1920 Cardinals returned to wearing ST. LOUIS across the chest. An alternate jersey is shown, nearly identical to that of the the 1917 jersey. We see this uniform shown in 1921 Spring Training photos. Teams typically wore previous season’s uniforms for Spring Training before getting their new uniforms on Opening Day. Often times old major league uniforms were passed down to minor league players in camp. While we can clearly see this SL patch uniform in photos, we do not know how it was used, or if it used at all in the regular season. Photos from this season are scarce.
