1949 Brooklyn Dodgers team photo showing satin uniforms

A little while back I wrote to my friend Paul at Uni Watch and mentioned that I was surprised I've never seen a team photo showing the teams that experimented with wearing satin uniforms back in the 1940s. 

That changed last week when I came across this auction on ebay. It shows the 1949 Brooklyn Dodgers wearing their satin uniforms. I found it really interesting that even the ball boy one the front row was issued a set of satins.
