USMC Baseball Jersey


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Have an opportunity to pickup this USMC Baseball jersey. Identified as Pre-WWII. Can anyone confirm the era?

 

Only tag is the one shown below - Coane. Found another on eBay also made by Coane, identified as 40's-50's, however is all white.

 

I also haven't seen any others in red; just white and grey.

 

Thanks in advance!

Saw this one as well.Im guessing later as the word knit is in the lable.

 

The one I have from a vet who played on the Marine team in 1943 is grey wool with red lettering and trim.

 

This looks 60s era to me.

Thanks, gentlemen!

 

Doyler, I assume you're referring to the one being offered on eBay? If so, this is not the same jersey.

The one I posted is being offered locally. With that said, their asking price is $75, which I assume is on the high side for a post WWII jersey without provenance?

Dont recall where I saw it but its the same lable and was advertised as early or pre WW2 which it isnt.
