Hi, thanks for taking a moment to read this post.
I have a vintage mini bat, which has been in my family since my father could remember (he was born in 1938) and it shows Fightin Cardinals. If I can submit a picture to this post I will (no success)
The main thing I am wondering is when were the Cardinals known as the “Fightin’ Cardinals”?
I have learned that the Cardinal Bird was officially moved to the bat in the Cardinal logo in 1922. I learned the Cardinals started playing at Sportsmans Park in 1920. I have also learned that the place they played at since the late 1800’s was also known as Sportsmans Park. I know the Cards were called the Perfectos for one year in 1899 - or 1900 (depending on what you read & where).
Any help would be appreciated, sincerely.
Since I cannot upload a picture - I will direct your attention to another online baseball community where I posted a picture.
