Limited Edition Jersey Exclusively Available at The SPORT Gallery
The classic look of a jersey meets the unparalleled comfort of your softest tee in this new limited edition item.
In 1956 big-time baseball arrived in Vancouver. That's not to say the game wasn't being played here prior – there's a few great local stories to be told, like the rise of the Japanese-Canadian Asahi ball club, or Babe Ruth playing at old Athletic Park. But before 1956 baseball in Vancouver was all semi-pro. The Mounties, part of the Pacific Coast League, were a step above. The PCL brass were actually intent on becoming a "major league" and challenging Major League Baseball itself. That was until the Dodgers and Giants franchises moved west from New York to California, absorbing the market the PCL had previously controlled. The left coast league didn't die, instead transforming into a feeder minor league affiliated with MLB. The PCL – and therefore the Mounties – became AAA ball in 1958 and stayed that way until 1969.
This jersey features the 1956 Vancouver Mounties logo fully embroidered on the left chest and the "VANCOUVER" wordmark fully embroidered on the back in an arch. Ivory sleeve piping is also fully embroidered.
