Original Mitchell & Ness - 1920's logo Ball Club Jersey - It came out of a old clothing locker at an estate sale in Pennsylvania. Im hoping someone can help with the acronym. P S C G & E Co. ( X X Coal, Gas & Electric Co.?) - Im totally guessing but I read where town power plant had ball clubs. Any help is appreciated.

I traded for this = 7 named 50's & early 60's cards... about 400 value... this is unique I can rebuy all those cards on ebay.. at least that's how I looked at it.

A phone call by the person who I bought it from to Mitchell and Ness was what dated the label. Someone who seems legit,,, but ya know...

This will be arriving on Friday and Ill be able to get better up close photos if needed. Thanks again.

How about "Philadelphia Suburban-Counties Gas & Electric Co." (from a paper dated 9-3-1927)

Scroll down almost all the way to the bottom, or just search the page for "SDBURBAN" as the OCR incorrectly identified the text.

Thank you for the replies. You are on to it Lance F. I need to do further research but in the first five minutes I could find other items about PSCG&E Co., "Philadelphia Suburban-Counties Gas & Electric Co.", in the 1927-1930 era. Much appreciate that dig I will update I owe you a cold frosty beverage someday.. :cool:

Always glad to lend a helping hand when I should be doing something else ;) Good luck with your continued search for info, and if you should run across any photos, I would love to see them!

Back in the day, Mitchell and Ness provided uniforms for most sports teams in the Philadelphia, Tri-county area. They even provided jerseys for some of the Professional teams -although the Phillies weren't one of them.
