Brown: 19th-century baseball uniform database updates

From SABR member Craig Brown at Threads of our Game on February 2, 2016:

If you are already dreaming about pitchers and catchers reporting and want to see something other than football, then please take a look.

1887 Detroit
Detroit researcher Joe Gonsowski recently unearthed a written account of what could be the Detroit blue uniform as shown in the beautiful Scrapps cut-outs from that period. Click the link and scroll down to see all the info.

1887 Philadelphia
A much photographed team. It seems a few team members were beginning to break the established uniform codes by wearing their top button open at the collar, and by cutting-off their sleeves (radical!).

1887 Brooklyn
Pinstripes and dot patterns—this Brooklyn team led the league in style. Plus see a rare view of the back of an 1887 uniform.
