The Sunset Hills Historical Society will present the St. Louis Cardinal History of the “Birds on the Bats” on Monday, May 20, at 7 p.m. This is the third in the ‘home stand’ series of programming that will feature local speakers on the history of the St. Louis Cardinals.
The presentation will feature two speakers: Gary Kodner, local author, graphics designer and historian of Cardinals’ uniforms; and Len Panneri, Sunset Hills resident and collector of early St. Louis Cardinals memorabilia.
Kodner’s most recent book, St. Louis Cardinals Uniforms and Logos: An Illustrated History, is a high-quality hardback 120-page coffee-table style book that takes a journey through the evolution of the Cardinals uniforms and logos from 1882. His presentation will include a visual and graphic history of the Cardinals in all its wonderful twists and turns, and will be a great reference for Cardinals fans or anyone who enjoys the subject of baseball team uniforms.
Kodner’s book and presentation is the perfect ‘double-play’ with Panneri’s collection of Cardinals memorabilia, from pennants to pinbacks. Together they will portray the history of STL logo collectibles: jerseys, photographs, autographs, pennants and pinbacks.
All Cardinals fans will want to join us for this visually-fun event in the Sunset Hills City Hall’s chambers, at 3939 South Lindbergh Blvd.
Parking and seating are limited. See you there!
