Babe Ruth 1931 House of David Home Throwback Babe Ruth Baseball Jersey (Sizes Small - 2XL) WIth #4 From Ebbets Field Flannels
Also known as the Israelite House of David, baseball's bewhiskered travelling team was made up of members of a chaismatic religious sect. They barnstormed the country, taking on all comers, and were famous for their tours with the Kansas City Monarchs. They occasionally invited guest players and Babe Ruth was one of them. Although not a member of the Negro Leagues, we've included the House of David here because of their long association with Negro league baseball.

The House of David was a Michigan religious sect that was famous for their traveling baseball team.
Sporting their trademark whiskers and long hair, they were the nation's most recognizable barnstormers for decades.
They often teamed up with the Kansas City Monarchs for barnstorming tours.
Quite simply, the real thing. Hand-crafted from genuine wool baseball flannel. Each shirt is researched, and carefully re-created using the same materials and production techniques as the original. Lettering on most models is wool felt. Some of the more expensive models (for example our 1938 Baltimore Orioles shirt) feature manual chain-stitch embroidery. The design is directly embroidered into the garment to produce a brilliant effect.
Sleeve patches were another important component of vintage jerseys. They often celebrated local events like World's Fairs, or anniversaries like baseballs official centennial in 1939. During wartime, ballclubs would display patriotic shields, like the Stars & Stripes or Health patch. You will find all of these faithfully re-created here.
Jersey prices include numerals, except where noted (most teams did not wear numbers prior to 1930.) We have chosen a standard number for all of our shirts, which is listed in the text for that model. You may order a different number at no extra charge, but it may slightly delay your order. NOTE: If you would like an alternate number, please write in the comments field of the order form "I would like alternate number 5 (five)(or whatever number you want) for item number EFF-HOL-41C (or whatever the item number is you are ordering)."
Sizes available are Medium (38-40) Large (42-44) XL (46-48) XXL (50-52)
Smalls are available on request (allow six to eight weeks). Please note that many shirts are made to order, and take one to six weeks for delivery. All jerseys are crafted in the USA, using American materials.
