Before the Chicago White Sox decided to give shorts a try in the hot Chicago summer, the Hollywood Stars of the PCL had already tinkered with the idea nearly three decades earlier! In 1950 the PCL allowed the radical uniform change for a day and it was a flop, but this rare photograph offers photographic proof of the gimmick that took place 71 years ago. A fantastic image in great shape, this is the only known vintage example of this photograph we have ever seen!
