MLB, you need to bring back these jerseys

In this space, it's no secret that we are fond of, shall we say, baseball-related "accoutrements of glory." So it should come as no surprise that I am hereby sounding the clarion call for MLB to disinter and put back into active use something quite like this ...

That's Bill Wambsganss of the 1921 Cleveland Indians, and he's wearing a jersey commemorating the team's 1920 championship. The Indians of that vintage weren't the first team to wear such threads, but this is perhaps the exemplar of the genre.

These are, I would submit, the depth and breadth of fashion excellence, and I request -- nay, demand -- that baseball bring back the "World's Champions" jerseys. I don't mean the gold-trimmed, one-off unis that teams these days wear when they receive their championship rings. Rather, I mean jerseys that, like the one above, say nothing but "World's Champions." They are to be worn until some other team is "World's Champion."

No one can think of any reason that this shouldn't happen.
