The Cleveland Spiders of the national league in the 1890's were one of the casualties

when the league was reduced to 8 teams aftre the 1899 season.Cleveland then joined

Ban Johnsons american league and was back as a major league for the 1901 season.

Blue was thier uniform trim color and thus were called the "Blues" for the first 5 or 6 seasons.

As normal they wore standard unis with the city name across the front.

In 1905 blues superstar Nap Lajoie was selected to manage the team and a new home

uniform for that season included an unusual form of the letter "C".It was an ornamental

script style on the left front of the shirt.By 1907 thre name blues was beginning

to tire the fans so they became to be known as the "Napoleans" or"Naps" in honor

of thier leader.In 1909 it was to be Lajoie's last season and the nickname still stayed

until 1915 when they officially became known as the "Indians".!916 a new nickname and

new uniform was made and they added players numbers on the left sleeve.

This idea lasted for one season and so was shelved for another 13 years until the Yankees

expiermented with this idea.Another historical event took place the spring of

1916 when greatc tris speaker was purchased to become the new home town

hero.His worth was proved as he became player manager in 1919 and leading

the indians to thier first world series in 1920.As result of shortstop ray chapmans death

during that pennant winning season they wore black armbands on thier left sleeve.

The celebration of thier world series win carried over into the 1921 season as they wore

the words "Worlds Champions" on the front of thier home and road unis.It was not

a popular idea with Mgr Speaker or the players.Speakers leadership was not enough

to win any more pennants and so in 1927 he moved onto Philadelphia to finish his career.

Inspired by the Tigers(Tiger Head) uniform in 1927 Cleveland followed the idea for the 1928

season by having a full bonneted Indian on the front of thier jersey.It was the first

visual acknowledgment of the teams nickname and represented the clubs participation

in a baseball wide trend for more colorful uniforms.For the 1929 season the indian head

was moved to the left sleeve as a block "C" was placed on the left breast.This uni lasted

up to the 1933 season when the home uni was restyled with interesting color features.

The button panel was made with solid red and thin navy blue edging and a new

"wishbone style" "C" in red and blue and the stocking were navy blue.

The solid red was dropped on the button panel in 1936 but the indian head patch continued.

Ex pitching great Walter Johnson managed some respectable teams during this run

and future great Bob Fellers debut was in these unis.

1938 the indian was removed and red stripes were added the the stockings but the wishbone C

remained as the dominate design thru the WWII period.

Thru the years the unis went trhu a few changes but in 1947 a new animated

toothy grinned indian patch was created and put on the left sleeve and was nicknamed

"WAHOO" and he lasted for 5 seasons.Those next few years new owner Bill Veeck

drew many people into the stands with promotional gimmicks and a steady improving

ball club.1948 Cleveland drew over 2 million people and the team rewarded them with a world series victory.

1951 introduced new manager al lopez and a few more uni changes.A new version of Wahoo was

created on the sleeve as well as inside the C on the cap.Another big season in 54

as the indians won 110 games and bob feller finished out his career in 1956 and

al lopez also had his final year.

For the next couple decades cleveland went thru many uni changes and wahoo

also went thru many changes,from pinstripes,to zippered to vest type but no

uniform was more colorful than the 1975 season as they introduced 3 uni versions.

A home ,away and an alternate.Many teams in the late 70s went to the bizzarre

color schemes and double knitted uniforms just like the Astros,A's,Pirates and the Indians were no different.

Wasnt til 1986 when Cleveland went back to the more conventional uniforms

these are from the 1905,1928,1933,1975 home and away,1989 Indians.The files are home,alt a ,alt h,bph,cl1 and cl2
