Dressed to the Nines: A History of the Baseball Uniform - This is a really well done site that's part of the Hall of Fame exhibit. It has a comprehensive database of all uniforms worn in major league play. Also some great anecdotes about Stargell stars, pillbox hats, and even a list of every armband worn by a team during a season and what it memorialized. Lots of good stuff here. via The Sports Frog

The database is based on Marc Okkonen's 1991 book Baseball Uniforms of the 20th Century, which is being published online as a a history of baseball unis at Baseball Almanac, including team-by-team histories. The book inspired a Harvard professor to do some statistical analysis, which revealed that uniform changes are less common now than they used to be. And who knew there was a Society for Sports Uniforms Research?
