Default Hoping for help on some jerseys!

I follow an individual on a different form of social media and one of their posts caught my attention. The individual in question found 2 jerseys while "picking."

I reached out to the person and asked if they cared to send me some images in hopes to help shed any light on them.

My knowledge on uniforms is very limited so I am asking for help from anyone with knowledge who might be able to help place a time frame and/or value to these uniforms.

Uniform 1 in question is both jersey and pants with Black Sox across the jersey front and a # on the reverse. My first thought is that it could be semi early (possibly 20s or 30s).

Uniform 2 in question is just a jersey and seems to be a Venezuelan jersey (possibly from the 80s)...

I will post a few images here, but have more detailed ones I can send via email.

Thanks
Travis

Found this picture of Ozzie Guillen and Luis Salazar wearing what look to be the same jerseys. No date but I'd guess mid/late 80s.

There was a Negro League team Baltimore Black Sox, I wasnt able to find a pic of them wearing that style jersey. If you could style match it, you'd really have something special.

Possibly......?

Drain Black Sox

The Drain Black Sox (1952-1961) were winners of the 1958 National Baseball Congress World Series. They were the first West Coast team to win the title until the Aloha Knights took the title in 2004. The Sox were inducted into the Oregon State Sport Hall of Fame in 2000.

Definitely some similarities to this more recent style of jersey. I am thinking that the Drain Black Sox is the answer, but it's an earlier jersey than this picture circa 1960.

You might already know that the Tiburones de La Guaira are a Venezuelan professional team. That uniform may have been from 1995, because I see where it carries a black #14 on its shoulder, and that year Tiburones/Sharks player and former MLBer Gus Polidor was murdered. He wore #14, which was eventually retired. The player who wore #13 that season was Miguel Castellanos.


All from Google-- my knowledge of Venezuelan baseball is basically zero.

Wow thanks for that help! Great job. Owner will be very appreciative.


Btw both of these jerseys were found at a goodwill outlet store where items are bought by the pound.
