Bismarck Churchills 1935 Road Jersey
History: The Churchills were an independent barnstorming club from Bismarck, North Dakota. Long before Jackie Robinson broke the Major League color barrier in 1947, the Churchills featured an integrated roster with black stars such as Ted “Double-Duty” Radcliffe, Hall of Famer Hilton Smith, and the legendary Satchel Paige. With Paige anchoring the pitching rotation in 1935, the Churchills won that year’s National Baseball Conference semi-pro baseball tournament in Wichita, Kansas.
