Hamilton Cardinals – On the Road in 1946

In 1946, the city of Hamilton had a professional baseball team, known as the Hamilton Cardinals, playing in the Pennsylvania-Ontario-New York league. To transport the team to the various other cities in the league, a bus was acquired and painted with the team’s colors and logo.

The Superior Engravers Company was hired to photograph the bus and two of those commissioned images appear below.
