Heralded as the "Yankees of the Minors," the Atlanta Crackers dominated the Southern Association from 1902 to 1961—mostly without any major-league affiliation, until joining the farm systems of the Boston/Milwaukee Braves (1950-59) and L.A. Dodgers (1960-61). Famed alums include Luke Appling, Eddie Mathews, Bob Montag (Cracker record 113 career HRs), Ernie Harwell, Tim McCarver and football Hall of Famer Charley Trippi. According to our consignor, this Atlanta Crackers uniform originated from an estate sale of player Syd Smith's personal effects. The 4-button jersey features an exceptionally well-preserved "A" sleeve patch, a Spalding logo label in the collar, and a bevy of heavy repairs across the upper back. There is scattered mild soiling on the jersey front and some darker spotting on the reverse. The 4-button pants also have a Spalding logo label in the waistband, along with medium staining/soiling and a handful of small repairs. Accompanied by photocopies of 1910 Crackers team photos showing all players except Syd Smith wearing the matching "A" sleeve patch. Smith's "A" is inexplicably in a different font and does not have the distinctive black diamond offered here.
