Ladies and gentlemen, your 1947 Milwaukee Brewers.
The reverse bears a photographer's stamp from "Sports Review", located at 1008 North 6th Street in Milwaukee. That address is across the street from Milwaukee Area Technical College, where my grandmother taught for decades, in a block that was swallowed up in the 1980s by the Bradley Center construction.
If those Brewer uniforms look somewhat familiar, they should. They represent a half-way point in the evolution of the Brewers' uniforms from the Bill Veeck era to the Boston Braves-inspired uniforms they would wear during their final seasons in Milwaukee.
Let's take a closer look, focusing on the Brewers' "tomato-faced" manager Nick Cullop front and center:
Opening Day opponents, the Minneapolis Millers, still wore the older style:
The "Brewers" script is essentially the same as it had been since 1942, although the color was darkened slightly to a midnight navy. The blue soutache was replaced with the Braves' signature navy/red/navy piping. The caps are navy with red brim and block "M".
Those caps would be the first thing to change, replaced with a white block "M" to match the parent club's "B". The script wordmark would be next, and by 1952, the Brewers' last year of existence, the uniforms' evolution was complete.
