Rare 1992 "A League Of Their Own" Kenosha Comets Screen-Worn Complete Uniform
Rare complete Kenosha Comets baseball uniform worn in the 1992 production of "A League Of Their Own", the huge box-office hit depicting the glory days of the All-American Girl Professional Baseball League, (AAGPBL), through the eyes and memories of former AAGPBL star Dottie Hinson (Gena Davis) on the occasion of her induction at Cooperstown. In addition to setting new box-office records for sports-related films, the film is noteworthy on a number of production levels, particularly its dedication to recreating the aesthetic and ambience of the era, and attention given to critical details such as ballparks, background cast, equipment and... team uniforms...
... such as this well-researched and crafted ensemble worn by a wartime Kenosha Comets team member. It's true in every detail to the actual Comets uniforms worn in the era, including heavy khaki green dress, kelly green satin shorts, wool stirrups and green canvas belt. Jersey/dress features three-button bib top with exact reproduction Comets logo shield and patriotic "AAGPBL" patch sewn-on left sleeve, and number "28" sewn-on reverse in green single-tackle twill. The garments not only show use created for production value, but also because games were actually staged and played by all the actresses, each of whom were required to have had baseball experience and perform as ballplayers. Point is, this uniform was not just window-dressing, it shows actual game use.
Due to the popularity of the film and demand for continued use as practical wardrobe and related exhibitions, very little of the film's wardrobe was released or made available to collectors, and outstanding examples such as this are far and few between. This superb uniform is big on the "wow factor" and will make a big addition to any serious collection, and a DVD of the film will provide unlimited photo-matches and options for impressive display.
A letter of authenticity from noted collector and sports-related film specialist Jon Kanuit will accompany.
