History: This is the earliest example of a satin athletic jacket we have seen. The '37 Phils finished 7th, however Dolph Camilli and Chuck Klein had strong seasons at the plate, hitting .339 and .325 respectively. Camilli also smacked 27 homers. This was the Phillies' last full year at the old Baker Bowl. They would move to Shibe Park in 1938.
