In 1934 the only change made to the uniform appears to be different socks with a minor alteration to the striping. In ’33 the stripes were blue red blue, in this season based on photographic record, they appear to be red blue red.

The 1934 Cardinals also gained league recognition as the Gas House Gang, with the media criticizing their unkept appearance. One newspaper in New York said of the Gas House Gang, “They don’t look like a major league ball club or as major league ball clubs are supposed to look in this era of the well-dressed athletes. Their uniforms are stained and dirty and patched and ill-fitting. They don’t shave before a game and most of them chew tobacco. They spit out the sides of their mouths and then wipe the backs of their hands across their shirt fronts. They are not afraid of anybody.” – New York Sun, 1934.

These types of newspaper accounts lead us to believe the team didn’t change uniforms in 1935.

We noticed this jacket emblem in 1934 being almost identical to the previous jackets worn, but with the bird having a few more lines and details stitching into the the wing pattern.

This 34-35 jacket bird seems odd to us, because of the wavy wing pattern. We believe this might have been created for a Hollywood movie.
