The early years of Phillies baseball have included some very simple, but great jerseys. From 1900 to 1920, the jersey front included a big serif font “P” on the front chest. On a white or gray top, they came in a variety of colors from blue, black, and red. The 1906 and 1908 uniforms had a serif “P”.

The 1900 road uniform had a red “PHILA.” across the front.

The 1911 home uniform was a blank front, while the 1909 tops were blank but had a “P” on the sleeve. The next season, 1910, the home white had an old English “P”.

A slightly smaller “P” was seen on the 1923 and 1924 uniforms. It was in a circle for the 1921 and 1922 seasons.

The old English “P” was on the uniforms from 1925 on. It was featured as both a chest logo and on the sleeve.

“Phillies” in a red cursive script was on the 1933 road jerseys.

A variety of hats were worn during the era, most of the hats worn after 1910 with a “P” on the front.
