This is the Philadelphia Stars Negro League logo t-shirt. The Philadelphia Stars were founded in 1933, played in the Negro National League from 1934 to 1948, and the Negro American League from 1949 to 1952. The Philadelphia Stars played in Philadelphia's West Parkside neighborhood, at the Pennsylvania Railroad YMCA Athletic Field at Belmont and Parkside Avenues. On Monday nights, they would often play at Shibe Park.
Led by lefthanded twirler Slim Jones, the team won the 1934 Negro National League championship. Their home games at that time were played on Passon Field, which today is the home field for West Philly High School.
Beautiful item and I was happy to support the Anderson Monarchs.
So so vivid and vital, just like the Philly Stars! Kicks...!
I love this store and I especially love the fact that this store does promote Philly’s Negro League team The Philadelphia Stars. I have most of the Tee’s on this site a couple of different Philly Stars shirts. :) Great quality. Every time I wear a Shibe shirt it’s “where did you get that?”
I love the shirt and the store. Philly nostalgia at reasonable prices.
