In 1951 the team refreshed their entire look. New solid blue caps with a modified STL emblem. New slimmer piping on the front of the shirt without the piping that connected the shoulder to the sleeve. Red undershirts at home. Blue undershirts on the road. A new Birds on the Bat logo across the chest.

This is the first Birds on the Bat logo to feature a yellow/gold bat. The Cardinals also wore a sleeve patch this season, commemorating 75 years of the National League.
