In 1952, the Cardinals kept the same jerseys, but dropped the National League sleeve patch. The team also switched back to a two-tone cap.

The team’s jackets in 1952 featured Sluggerbird. This would be the first time that Sluggerbird made an appearance on an official team garment.

In 1953 August Busch of the Anheuser Busch Brewery bought the Cardinals when Fred Saigh was convicted of tax evasion. Gussie and Anheuser Busch would own the team for over 40 years.
