You Could Get Red Sox Replica Gear In 1919

My friend Pete over at Hauls of Shame web site has a very interesting article about how Red Sox gear was available to the buying public as early as 1919, and it even has Babe Ruth featured in a Boston Globe ad, shortly before his infamous sale to You Know Where.

And coincidentally, today is the 91st anniversary of Ruth leaving Boston for Other Parts, although the deal was actually finished the previous December 26th.
