1939 marks the beginning of the era of zippered baseball jerseys for the Cardinals. For the next 16 years, with the exception of the ’44 World Series and ’45 regular season, the uniform would feature a zippered shirt instead of a button down shirt.
The uniform piping in 1939 was similar in weight and placement to the 1938 piping. On the left sleeve was a patch that read “baseball Centennial.”
