    1946 Steve Roser Game Worn Boston Braves Satin Uniform - Rare Style. Baseball uniforms have transformed through the years. Flannels eventually gave way to knits which morphed into Dri-Fit material. One of the concepts which fell by the wayside were the satin uniforms worn in the 1940's. The Boston Braves, Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals added quite a bit of personality to their attire when they opted to wear silk uniforms which was intended to make it easier to see players under the lights. The players complained that the jerseys were uncomfortable and the idea never gained much traction. This satin jersey was worn by situational pitcher Steve Roser during a night contest in 1946. "Braves" is applied across the front with a little chenille sprinkled in. The reverse numbers are in single-color red with black anchor stitching. Three tags are found in the collar: "Roser" (chainstitched to a white swatch), "Horace Partridge" manufacturer's tag and a white flag tag with "50" written (size?) in black ink. A red stain appears below the tomahawk. The fashion-filled listing also includes a pair of white silk pants with red accentuating the waist and sides. The waistline includes a "Horace Partridge" label and "size 36" indicator. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
