The red “Reds” wishbone “C” logo became the staple of this era. Done with either a black outline or no outline, it was a great look.

The logo was on both home and away jerseys. The home whites was a plain white jersey for a few seasons but for the most part was a pinstripe jersey.

The road gray uniforms were pinstripes for most of the era. In 1930, the jersey went to plain gray with a thin red trim on the placket. In 1931, the “Cincinnati” script returned to the road’s front. Those jerseys had a red spoonhead.

White with red pinstripes, red stripe at the base of the bill and the red “C” was the initial cap worn. They even wore a solid white version of this lid. Then a navy version was added. The white hat with a red brim was added later in the era.
