The first uniforms for the new 1901 Boston Americans were picked out by manager

Jimmy collins.Nothing unusual just white home and grey road.They had regulation

turn down collars with lacing part way down the front.The trousers had built in

padding fro sliding protection.The caps were so called "Chicago" style,a pillbox with

2 stripes around the crown.A feature that may have surprised the uninformed Red Sox

fan is that all trim including the stockings were not red but blue.Both home and road had

"Boston" arched in block capital letters.This was standard in most unis at this time but for

Boston this is especially noteworthy because the form of the "Boston"letters is

virtually identical to todays road unis and represents the oldest surviving major league

uniform.With older pictures its hard to identitify the difference between the Boston Americans

to the Boston Nationals.To resolve this problem the Americans changed thier front

jersey trim to old english"B" and "A".Since most teams nicknames were not official

except for the Philadelphia Athletics,"Americans"was the accepted name used

to distinguish this team from the Boston Nationals.Unofficial names used by newspapers

were Somersets,Pilgrims and Puritans.The old english letters were another common

standard and the only current survivor of this early century fashion is the "D"on the

Detroit Tigers

1903 was a very important milestone for the American league fro credibility of being

a "Major League" as Boston challenged the mighty Pittsburghs(led by Honus Wagner)

To a best of 9 so called "world championship"and Boston won 5 games to 3.

1908 the Boston Americans officially became known as the "Red Stockings" or "Red Sox"

They followed the "White Sox" to shorten the stockings to sox which most

likely to save space on newspaper accounts for games.The 1908 jerseys were unique

because on the center of the chest was a slanted red stocking symbol with the name "Boston"

in white capital letters.This unusual graphic made no mistake on who the team was

and was the first pictorial reference to a team nickname on a "Jersey".Detroit was the

first to have a graphic which was a "Red Tiger" on thier caps in 1901.

The following files represent the 1902.1908,1974 and 1976 Red Sox.the files are the cl1.cl2.home and alth iff's
