Philadelphia Buejays Custom Fitted Cap

After lumber baron William B. Cox purchased the team in 1943, the Phillies began a rapid rise to prominence in the National League, as the team rose out of the standings cellar for the first time in five years. The fans responded with an increase in attendance, but it soon became clear that not all was right in Cox' front office. Eventually, it was revealed by Cox that he had been betting on the Phillies and he was banned from baseball. The new owner, Bob Carpenter, Jr., scion of the Delaware DuPont family, tried to polish the team's image by unofficially changing its name to the "Bluejays"; however, the new moniker did not take, and it was quietly dropped by 1949.
