Ebbets Field Flannels this week unveiled a couple of new hat and t-shirt designs related to NBP teams. There's a 1940 Tokyo Giants hat, a 1966 Sankei Atoms hat and a 1963 Taiyo Whales t-shirt. I thought this week I'd show someone wearing the logo that's on the Whales t-shirt - Haruyasu Nakajima from the 2006 BBM Nostalgic Baseball set (#058):
Does anyone know what the symbol on the sleeve of the Whales t-shirt is? I had wondered if it somehow indicated something about Kawasaki because they stopped having the symbol on the uniform when they moved to Yokohama in 1978, but it was on pre-1955 uniforms as well and I don't think the Whales were in Kawasaki prior to 1955.
