George’s Favorites? Ya(n)da, Ya(n)da, Ya(n)da

WRHS 021

By Vince Grzegorek

While my esteemed boss used up all the Uni Watch frequent flier miles on trips to St. Louis, Toronto, and his vacation, I was left in charge of the blog and with the task of foraging for stories only as far as my trusty Dodge Stratus would carry me. That didn’t turn out to be a bad thing, though, since I ended up hot on the trail of some archived uniforms nearby at the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland.

A quick backstory: While browsing through the searchable collection of the WRHS, I came across nine uniforms from around 1920 that weren’t on display. There were no pictures, just a short description of the color and text on each one. My interest piqued, I got in touch with Scott Longert, Associate Curator for Sports History, and asked if I could come down and have a look. He was gracious enough to say yes and spend some time with me last Friday. (All photos courtesy of the Western Reserve Historical Society, of course.)

I wasn’t sure what I was going to find when I got down there. These jerseys were close to 90 years-old and were from amateur sports leagues, so it was possible that I would walk in to discover torn and tattered pieces of fabric, or faded remnants of what had once been great uniforms. All I had were the brief descriptions and the fact that the pieces were made by the Favorite Knitting Mills, a company that produced a ton of uniforms during the period and sponsored many more amateur teams, including the Favorite-Knits, a powerhouse of early-1920s football.

My worries were soon assuaged as Scott unveiled the collection donated by George and Ann Yanda in 1999. The jerseys, which belonged to George’s father, also named George, were in outstanding condition and provided a brief survey of early semi-pro and amateur attire for both basketball and football.

In almost every case, the team was either playing for or sponsored by a local Cleveland company. There was the “Fry Marvel” jersey, which had a nice little twist with inverted coloring on the letters and background on the front; the “Meter Lab” jersey, which looked almost as sharp as any sweater you would buy in the mall these days; the “Victory Auto Service” jersey, which almost screamed “Badass”; , the “Illuminating” jersey, the most boring example of the bunch; the “ChaLmps” jersey, which had a gorgeous design; the “Circles” jersey, which was the only one to have a last name on the back (as you can see in the lead photo); and the “Suchan Alleys” jersey, which had a beautiful-looking font on the front and back.

The prize was to be found, however, with two inconspicuous but beautiful football jerseys that had just a simple “I” on the front. After chatting with George Yanda about his father’s career, I found out that George Sr. played for the Cleveland Indians football team, which played in both the early NFL and the American Association of Professional Football. So these jerseys were probably worn sometime around 1922 or later when the Indians merged with the Canton Bulldogs to become the Cleveland Bulldogs.

As I chatted with George about his father’s playing days, times of little pay and a lot of travel, times detailed in books like Pro Football’s Rag Days, it was amazing to know I had seen the uniforms sitting right in front of me, and it was even more amazing to see how incredibly well-preserved they were. Stored in a basement for decades, and then stored at the Historical Society for the last 8 years, the jerseys can now see the light of day, and we can get a full-color glimpse into those Rag Days.

Tangential Bonus Material: Unfortunately, the jerseys I viewed are not on public display, but the WRHS still has plenty of amazing things, including the restored Chief Wahoo from the top of old Municipal Stadium (with beautiful striped stirrups just for Paul). Also, Scott tells me that there will be a major Cleveland Indians exhibition next summer that will collect photos, uniforms, and artifacts from the team’s extensive and storied history. Stay tuned for details. And finally, the Western Reserve Historical Society has a baseball speaker series running in August that will include talks by Cleveland’s VP of Public Relations, Bob Dibiasio, and former sportswriter, Burt Graeff.

Uni Watch News Ticker: That mysterious guy Paul has sent along a couple more contributions: First, my Ohio State Buckeyes beat Michigan again in this rating of college football uniforms; and second, the Long Beach Armada had planned a Michael Vick jersey bonfire, but had to cancel. Now, you can exchange a Michael Vick jersey for a free ticket on Animal Awareness Day, and then use the jersey as a pooper scooper or wee-wee pad… Curtis Granderson respects uniform history (thanks to Bill, no last names, please)… How often do you see an athlete advertise for another sport? Well, Ben Curtis just might be the most blatant example ever. “Go NFL!” (a teal deal thanks to Alexander Collazo)…Roger Faso passed on a great photo gallery of a game played to historically accurate uniform standards (except for the shoes)… A nice piece on Manny’s barber and the “LMontro 99” wristbands sent along by Chris Flinn… The new 125th anniversary logo for the International League looks very spiffy, and very Scott Turner-esque (solid assist by Doug Brei)… An article on South Africa’s new Rugby World Cup jerseys can be found here (hard-hitting thanks to Josh Rubin)… Majestic will become the official outfitter of Minor League Baseball starting at the beginning of the 2008 season according to Matt Hoffman… A Uni Watch shout out to Ryan Finley, who gave a nice shout out to Uni Watch in this azstarnet.com blog entry about Arizona’s uniforms (thanks to Chris Pastore)… Matthew Linder alerted me to this Ebay listing for a Cleveland Lumberjacks jersey that he called “amazing”. I can think of a few other descriptions as well.

    Ok, I have a question guys. My wife bought me a batting practice jersey from this year’s MLB All-Star game. I love the National logo on the front of them. Anyways, I am a big fan of the Rockies, so she got me a Matt Holliday jersey, but when I got it yesterday, I got a National League jersey with Holliday and a number 5 on the back, but a Toronto Blue Jays patch on the sleeve!!! I am guessing they got this confuse with Roy Halladay, but shouldn’t they have known that Toronto was in the American League? What should I do? Keep it or ask for a new one to correct the error. I kinda torn because I want the Rockies logo on it, but I also like the mess up. Kinda cracks me up. Any comments are welcomed and yes, I know, the BP jerseys are not very popular here, so please be nice to me! HAHA!

    Also, the list of college football uniforms is a joke. The all white Texas is one of the most boring and bland uniforms of all time and they were a white mesh top still. Horrible unis. Also, FSU number one and Florida two? He must live somewhere in the Sunshine State because just for the fact that UF wore the orange sleeves one time should drop them. At least he mentioned them. Also, no mention of Oklahoma, which is a very classic look or any other simialr unis.

    The guy deducted points from Penn State for not having a logo on its helmet and lack of a third jersey. He also gave additional points for douchebag merrit stickers, and was only prevented from ranking Lousiville in the top ten by their lack of football tradition.

    Here’s what he said about Notre Dame;

    They’ve had the same jerseys forever.

    No, they have not, They wore Green in the 70’s, Jerry Faust had them in Royal and Yellow (with names on the back no less), then Lou Holtz put them back in Navy Blue in wait for it, 1986. Hardly forever.

    However, in the past decade they have made some changes that have helped to improve the jerseys over time.

    More bull shit. Addidas put them in those stupid gold side pannels on them for a season or two, but other than that, pretty much the same since 1986.

    A new green alternate jersey.

    A statement too preposterous to ridicule

    He included Georgia Tech and Kansas (neither has bad uniforms) at the expense of UCLA, Oklahoma, and Nebraska and claimed that tradition was an important part of his methodology.

    Let us never speak of this again.

    Having worked in a jersey-customizing place, if we made a mistake with anything stitched on, we’d replace the entire jersey. Once it has been sewn, you can tell if the sewn-on piece is removed.

    And you had to send back the jersey with the error to get a new one. ;o)

    but this outfit was a business. his vick kennels enterprise and his bad newz kennels enterprise (which strictly bred presa canario, pit bull and rot weiler dogs) shows that there was a concerted intent to at least raise and breed dogs which are historically the dogs used in these fights.

    Also, I agree about Louiville. They should not be on the list. The all black are terrible in my opinion. I am a firm believer as well that the pant and jersey should not be the same color either. I think this is the worst look ever for a football uniform. The only exception would be white, but you have to have the stripes on the pants to give it a little color.

    Custom stirrups for my high school team would be sweet. We have home/away blue and white socks, but stirrups would rock.

    The guy deducted points from Penn State for not having a logo on its helmet and lack of a third jersey. He also gave additional points for douchebag merrit stickers, and was only prevented from ranking Lousiville in the top ten by their lack of football tradition.

    Here’s what he said about Notre Dame;

    They’ve had the same jerseys forever.

    No, they have not, They wore Green in the 70’s, Jerry Faust had them in Royal and Yellow (with names on the back no less), then Lou Holtz put them back in Navy Blue in wait for it, 1986. Hardly forever.

    However, in the past decade they have made some changes that have helped to improve the jerseys over time.

    More bull shit. Addidas put them in those stupid gold side pannels on them for a season or two, but other than that, pretty much the same since 1986.

    A new green alternate jersey.

    A statement too preposterous to ridicule

    He included Georgia Tech and Kansas (neither has bad uniforms) at the expense of UCLA, Oklahoma, and Nebraska and claimed that tradition was an important part of his methodology.

    Let us never speak of this again.[/quote]

    I must correct a few little things in your mention as a die hard notre dame fan. There were also some other subtle changes over the years, especially when the school swithed from Champion to Adidas. Notre dame during the davie era (lest we forget) had the interlocking ND on the side of their shoulders. When Weis came on bored he changed it to numbers and also added the little shamrock on the collar. But I agree with you, the article is a bit well, crap

    Ok, I have a question guys. My wife bought me a batting practice jersey from this year’s MLB All-Star game. I love the National logo on the front of them. Anyways, I am a big fan of the Rockies, so she got me a Matt Holliday jersey, but when I got it yesterday, I got a National League jersey with Holliday and a number 5 on the back, but a Toronto Blue Jays patch on the sleeve!!! I am guessing they got this confuse with Roy Halladay, but shouldn’t they have known that Toronto was in the American League? What should I do? Keep it or ask for a new one to correct the error. I kinda torn because I want the Rockies logo on it, but I also like the mess up. Kinda cracks me up. Any comments are welcomed and yes, I know, the BP jerseys are not very popular here, so please be nice to me! HAHA!

    On the subject of logo mix-ups, I once went into a Lids looking for a Pirates hat, and found one similar to this that had the Pirates style “P” on the front, but the back read “Phillies”. I didn’t buy it but I pointed it out to an employee and he took it off the shelf. That would have been the perfect gift for a fan of crappy Pennsylvania baseball.

    YES. Especially being a Dodger fan. But I’ve come to terms with the fact he will break it. I’m just hoping it will be after August 19, when I visit Fenway Park for the first time.

    The Islanders one is not bad, but they messed up on the patch. It should be 4 stripes to represent their 4 cups. I don’t really like the placement of the patch either.

    Sorry, forgot the link.[/quote]

    The Rangers’ new sweaters have been unveiled.

    No changes, except for adding the NFL shield behind the laces.

    Just to show that NHL teams could resist the RBK EDGE styling, if they wanted to.

    [quote comment=”124541″]I dont get all of the hate for Florida State’s unis. What is there not to like about them? The helmet is unique and classic. The colors go very well together. The only thing I can think of that some people might not like is the collar, which has been that way for as long as I can remember, and I cant think of any other schools that do it.[/quote]

    As a Seminole fan, as pleased as I am with the ranking, I have a couple nit-picks:

    1) I’ve never liked the collar. I much prefer the Pre-1994 jersey.
    2) Tradition. Yes, the past 30 years have been very very good to the Seminoles. However ,I can remember when they were 1-10 in 1974 and almost disbanded the program. Compared to most programs, “tradition” is something deeper to me, so I’m glad that Army and Navy were included.

    Click on the picture below though and you can see those are the new sweaters by the template. the lettering seems a bit condensed to fit on the one portion of the sweater, but it’s the same design and I can live with that.

    I’ve alwas thought those white Rangers sweaters were one of the best in all of sports. I don’t know if that because my college team wore the same thing, but with our school name down the front, if if it’s because they’re that darn nice.

    As an Islanders fan I can still appreciate the Rangesr’s sweaters. It’s nice to see that not all teams are using this as an excuse to makeover their image.

    That being said… I can’t get over the curved hemline. Why can’t they just square it off considering it is no longer going to be tucked in.

    As a Ranger fan, I would like to say I’m dissapointed. The Rangers finally had a good excuse to change their jerseys and didn’t do it. They’ve had pretty much the same jersey for like 80 years. It’s time for a change already.

    Supposedly that is another Cleveland Indians jersey. The Indians appeared and merged and disappeared a couple of different times in the early 1920s, so it’s very possible that this is why the two jerseys with the “I” look completely different.

    I’m with Teebz on dislike for the Kings jerseys. Perhaps if they got rid of the “los Angeles” floating at the bottom and added in a stripe (or even left it blank!), they’d be decent. I REALLY hate words on a jersey (save a few exceptions – Dallas, Washington). Same reason I despise the rumored new Lightning logo.

    I have to move the Caps up in that list just behind the Rangers, though. I like them. Honestly, I would’ve preferred the red jersey with red pants. I think that’d have been a sleeker look (keep the blue pants for the white jersey though).

    Teebz – Where did you see the Canes jersey? I must’ve missed that one…

    You’re welcome, and I agree on the Rangers’ lettering. It doesn’t run shoulder-to-hip any longer, making it look odd.

    NY Rangers

    Carolina’s jersey was shown by EA Sports in NHL 08 as they had to get Eric Staal in uniform for the cover.

    In response to all the comments regarding that chump’s football uni rankings:
    Okay, so the guy did his own rankings. Fine. Sure, they suck and he doesn’t like the same things as us, but really who cares. That’s why he’s on that website and we’re on this one.

    What really got me was that he completely contradicted himself a couple times, and got things completely wrong some other times. For example, he penalizes Penn State because their jerseys are too boring, according to him. Later, he credits Navy and Notre Dame even though the only difference (discernable by him) is the gold as opposed to the white. So unless he hates the color white, he just completely contradicted himself. You can find loads of stuff like that in there.

    Also, he doesn’t know how to spell common English words. That made me mad.

    It also seems like he just went through a Top 25 ranking and picked which ones he liked best. Finally, I thought it was funny when he started talking about the accent of navy blue in Georgia Tech’s jerseys. I must have missed all that navy blue.

    Sure, the kid sucks at what he does, and probably didn’t do any research at all, but consider it a little confidence-booster for the rest of us, who actually know what the hell we’re talking about.

    No. “Dallas” is nicely integrated into the ST*RS logo, similar to how “Washington” slides right into the CAPITALS wordmark. The “Los Angeles” simply looks randomly placed. Almost as awkwardly as NASHVILLE on the white Predators jerseys. Stripes would have been better here. I really hope that was sarcasm on your part.

    I think you may be a bit harsh with your comments here. At times the focus may stray away from sports uniforms, but whenever there is any leaks of any sports league jerseys, this site provides all the late breaking news.

    As for the one liner of the Sharks new logo, what else do you want him to say that hasn’t already been said when the first leak of the logo came out. It is hard to discuss much about the logo without the rest of the uniform.

    The airline uniforms article was great. Aside from the fact that it wasn’t sports related, it featured many of the elements we use to discuss and debate over sports uniforms including style, design, functionality and overall look. Not every single thing mentioned in this blog is sports related, it happens, probably because most of the people who read and participate here do other things beside think about sports uniforms. Enjoy the diversity of topics covered and it there is something you aren’t interested in, just skip over it. If you see something isn’t covered, you are more than welcome and give your opinion. Some days the comments are more interesting that the article. It just takes Paul to get the ball rolling.

    In my opinion this site is great, Paul does a great job and so do all the people, including Vince, who contribute to the site.

    yeah, the Los Angeles is very awkwardly placed. I just bought a 2002 LA kings 3rd jersey, and it’s just a bother on all counts.

    If a city name is part of a logo ( Dallas, Washington, Anaheim, Edmonton, Minnesota 3rd, Toronto, Tampa Bay, winnipeg 1 and 2, islanders fisherman, cleveland barons) or it IS the logo ( Rangers, Avalanche 3rd, Anaheim, old pittsburgh 1 and 2, california golden seals), it’s really not a problem…seriously, it’s not, it’s part of the identification of the team.

    if it’s tacked on, it’s really not necessary…if there’s an example where this is great, tell me, because i sure can’t think of any. examples where it is bad: Los Angeles, Nashville, old blue Capitals, 80s Blues, Atlanta (though i hate the one-sleeve more), old buffalo, bruins poohbear shoulders

    i think that’s every example back to the original six…before that is rather irrelevant. if i forgot one, say so.

    in short:
    logo related: great
    not with the logo, just on the jersey: bad
