Another Beauty from Ebbets FIeld - 1953 Green Bay Bluejays Jersey

Jerry Cohen and his team at Ebbets Field Flannels have produced a new home run - a reproduction of the 1953 Green Bay Bluejays jersey. As regular readers know, the Bluejays still hold an important place in our club's history.

We've seen an exemplar of the jersey this is based on. Ebbets Field did a pretty good job with this one.

The Bluejays in turn modeled their jerseys after those worn by the Brewers in the early 1940s. It was common at the time for major leagues to recycle old jerseys by sending them down through the farm system. I presume that they Brews did that as well, outfitting their old flannels with a new chest logo:

Best yet, it's on sale now for $129.00.

While you're perusing their collection of Milwaukee Brewers history, you might also take a look at this Toledo Sox jersey from 1953.

When the Braves moved from Boston to Milwaukee, our Brewers found themselves without a home, and moved to the recently-vacated Ohio city.

Two great minor league jerseys, each with a tie to the Brews. And if you order something from Ebbets Field, tell them sent you - maybe we can convince them to add another Milwaukee jersey to their line.
