The 1957 Cardinals restored the familiar Birds on the Bat to their jerseys. These birds resemble the design from ’51-’55, but were rendered smaller, and have slightly different details in the face, eyes, and wings. In 1957 and 1958, the Cardinals continued to be a “blue team” on the road, wearing the same blue undersleeves and blue socks from the 1956 road kit. But in 1959 their road socks and sleeves were back to red.

The picture of Sportsman’s Park shown above was from either April 15, or April 17, 1958 based on the scoreboard and out of town games.
Nice! I have it labeled as Sportsman Park, i should probably change it to Busch Stadium because Gussie renovated and renamed it when he bought the team in 1953
