Ebbets Field Flannels

Now working out of Pioneer Square, I’ve taken an interest in exploring more of the quiet parts of the neighborhood beyond 1st Avenue and on one of the side streets just north of the stadiums I found the store for Ebbets Field Flannels – the maker of historical reproduction sports jerseys, hats, and jackets.

I stopped by last week to check it out and I was impressed by the quality of what it sells as well as the background story behind each piece (the employees are very knowledgeable, and I’m sure it helps to be a sports nerd here). Despite an unassuming storefront and a location that would be easy to miss unless you walked right by it, a small but steady stream of customers were coming in and out during my visit, including many fathers out with their sons.

Some shots from the store – a selection of its famous wool flannel baseball jerseys:

Our National Game

Also now on exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum is a small baseball themed collection under the title of Our National Game. Pieces from Douglas Tilden, Normal Rockwell, and Jacob Lawrence are included, along with a selection of rare photography and print memorabilia. The exhibit itself is fairly small, but is worth looking at if you’ve stopped by for Beauty & Bounty (it will be located on the opposite side of level 3 in the Knight/Lawrence Gallery).
