Ah,interesting, have never heard about that. I take it you discovered this after the Pride Park thread earlier?

Yeh was surprised so many teams played baseball in those days, I can't imagine it. Villa's best player when they won it also captained the football side and played for England

 

here is the Derby side: they should have those jersey's in their club shop

Apart from the fact that the baseball and football club are/were distinct, then yes they should sell them

Interesting tho that S Bloomer is Steve Bloomer perhaps one of Derby's most famous players and the President and Vice are from the Ley family who gave their name to Derby's stand at the baseball ground.

In fact it seems im incorrect myself.

 

Apart from a tenious link between both county's and the cricket club, the club's are very distinct from each other bar sharing the same name
