Below are catalog scans of what was available in baseball jerseys for the 1962, 1990-1994 and 1999 seasons.


Base Price: 7.95 (Sizes 4-16)
Notes: A look at the infancy of the baseball jersey market. Looks like most of the stuff was made for kids with the exception of hats...


Base Price: $79.95 (Size 36, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48)
Size 52 & 56: $99.95
Mariners, Cardinals, Braves, Blue Jays: $99.95 (Size 52 & 56: $119.95)
Batting Jerseys: $59.95 (Size 52 & 56: $69.95)

Notes: Funny how things change. Today size 52 and 56 is a pretty standard size that usually doesn't require extra $$$. Also, for some reason the Yankees home jersey is not available for purchase, only road.


Base Price: $89.95 (Size 36, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48)

Size XXL: $59.95
Braves, Mets road, and Tigers road $59.95, (Size XXL $69.96)

Notes: The Boston road jersey, loses the plaket trim, and gains it on the sleeves. The Mets and Pirates move away from pullovers and the White Sox and Padres received redesigns. 1991 marks the change of batting jersey manufacturers, from Rawlings to Majestic. Also, in 1990 you would buy your jersey in numbered sizes (36, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 52, 56), while in 1991, Majestic did it in the S, M, L, XL, and XXL sizes.

Phillies, Expos, Cardinals, Braves, Blue Jays: $109.95 (Size 52: $129.95)
Batting Jerseys: $49.95

Notes: Here is the beginning of the Russell Athletic exclusive contract. 1992 saw the addition of a White Sox black jersey, O's orange jersey, and Reds red jersey. The REALLY big news is you could finally buy a home Yankees jersey. Look at those sale prices:1991 Rawlings jerseys for $59.95 and 1991 Majestics at $29.95!

Notes: Late in 1992 the new expansion teams were made available in time for Christmas. Both expansion teams introduced alternate jerseys right off the bat, Colorado in black, and Florida with sleeveless.

Angels, Braves, Phillies, Marlins, Rockies, Tigers, Expos: $59.99 (Size $69.99)
Notes: Cincinnati no longer has a red Reds jersey with their redesign. The Angels and Mariners also received an update.


Base Price: $114.99 (Size 36, 40, 44, 48, 52)
Sleeveless Jerseys: $94.99
Batting Jerseys: Lightweight-$49.99, Heavyweight-$74.99
Button-Down Batting Jerseys: $114.99
Notes: In 1994, the batting jerseys underwent quite a change. Early on in 1994 you could buy a lightweight Majestic or a heavyweight Russell. As 1994 goes on Russell changes things up, check out that fourth pic. Russell raises the price to $114.99 for ten teams called "button down teams". The extra cost for sizes 52 and bigger have disappeared. Alternate jerseys are beginning to make their splash on the scene, ten teams have alternate jerseys available for purchase. By the way, the undershirt worn underneath the vest jerseys were available at $24.99 apiece ($29.99 additional for XXL).


Base Price: $139 (Size 40, 44, 48, 52)
Batting Jerseys: $65
Notes: Unfortunately I have a bit of a gap between 1995-1998, so fast forward to 1999 where there are now a total of 11 alternates available. Interesting that you can't get a name put on a Yankees or a White Sox jersey. The batting jerseys scan have a cool little key showing which teams wore plaket front, button front, and v-neck.


Base Price: $109.95 (Size 36, 40, 44)
Size 48: $119.95
Size 52: $134.95
Notes: Two little bonuses-NCAA and AAA jerseys. They were made by Wilson and eight teams were available for AAA and NCAA teams. Prices for either the NCAA or AAA authentic sure wasn't cheap, these are late 1992 prices printed on the pictures.
