Racing jockeys have the right towear advertisements and logos ontheir uniforms.Why not?Few, if any, sports don't havesome form of commercial adver-tising on their clothing, equip-ment, or strategically placed sig-nage of all sorts.I don't know if bowling was thefirst, but it was an early approverof the idea, going back to the1900s and before. In the boomingdays of bowling during the majorpart of the 20th century, bowlingshirts were akin to walking bill-boards. The earliest advertiserswere beer, cigars, bowling equip-ment, bowling centers, banks,amusement centers, and many anindustrial organization, as well asa good sprinkling of religiousorganizations.But what seemed natural inbowling was viewed with scornand deprecating smiles by toomany outside of the game.That didn't stop the bowlersand their sponsors. When therewere more than 10 million leaguebowlers, almost all had bowlingshirts and the better teams alsohad slacks, and often jackets tomatch. Most of the sponsors werelocal---restaurants and bars, gasstations, barber shops and beautysalons, banks, insurance agencies,all types of stores, and even politi-cians, but many of the top nation-al firms also joined as sponsors.For a comparatively small sum,money for league entry fees andshirts, a sponsor could haveadvertising for 36 weeks and fiveor six bowlers and their familiesboosting a product or service byword of mouth as well.These days bowling shirts inlow average or regular houseleagues are mostly gone---and insome leagues there are morebowlers wearing hats than bowl-ing shirts.There was a number of bowlingapparel companies that gavebonus prizes for bowlers whorolled a 300 game while wearing ashirt, belt, skirt or slacks of a cer-tain firm. The prizes rangedfrom $100 to $1,000, mostly insavings bonds. That wouldn't bea good idea in this time of highscores.Teams went out of their way tocome up with beautiful and oftengarish shirt designs. Embroiderywas an accepted art and could becostly. So at times the writing onthe back cost more than theshirts.The International Bowling Hallof Fame and Museum has a clas-sic collection of shirts spanningalmost a century of male andfemale uniforms of all sorts.When the PBA first started itstour it was anything goes andbowlers could wear any kind of shirt advertising almost anyproduct. On TV only the bowler'sname, very huge, was allowed.The PBA then went to no nameson shirts and a bowler, accordingto his finish, was allowed tochoose from a variety of colors,and those following had to choosedifferent colors.For a time Ernie Schlegel andGoupy Troup were the kings of surprise uniforms, from tuxstyled outfits to those with eachleg adorned with a different color.It all settled down and most willagree that bowlers are dressedneat and colorful these days. Thebig laugh is that almost everysport was critical of bowlingbecause of bowling shirts withnames and now just about everysport has adopted the: same prac-tice.They should have known. Back in the 1890s era the top teamswore stiff starched, long-sleevedshirts and ties when they compet-ed in important matches. Anyonewho went through that can't beall bad.Where are all those millions of shirts now? Few are still beingused some rest in closets andattics, but most were sent toneedy people around the worldwhen for decades clothing drivesconcentrated on them.
