Since the turn of the century out of all the major leaguefranchise there have only been

10 teams that have kept thier team in the same city.St Louis has not only represented

the national league since 1892 but has always been known as the Cardinals.Although

the original nickname had to do with its colors rather than any association with birds.

No matter they were still always been the cardinals and red has always been the primary color.

The uniform was typical in its day,baggy with a wide belt,full length sleeves,fold down collar

and laced up jersey with the name St Louis on block letters.The cap was usually white with thin

red line around the crown or sometimes a solid red cap with white STL monogram.

The uniform design remained unchanged for the first decadeexcept for the laces

being switched to buttons.

Since team nicknames were more invetions by media than official names by the teams these nicknames

were slow to appearon uniforms.St Louis became the 4th team aftre the Cubs,Reds

and Pirates to include thier nickname on the home uniform in 1918.

In 1922 the most unique combination of team name and team symbol made its appearance.

The first version of 2 redbirds perched on a sloping bat,which passes thru a large C

of cardinals won immidiate approval by cards fans.Also in 1922 alternate uniforms

wereworn on weekends and special days which included some bizzare sox patterns,

and even a bird on the sleeve.In 1923 they expiermented with using numbers on the sleeves.

The Cards upset the Yankees in the world series in 1926 and so in 1927 they

put world champions on the front of thier jerseys.The Giants had done this in 1906

as did the Indians in 1921.

The files included are the home away bph and the cl1.The unis are from

1927,1944,1956 and the 1977
