For sale here is an extremely nice 1950s Vintage Athletic Wool Letter Sweater made by Sand Knit in Berlin Wisconsin. The sweater features a six button front closure, cuffed sleeves, hanging waist, mock collar, and two waist patch pockets.The left patch pocket has been covered by a light blue and white letter Y with a track winged shoe in the center. The letter is hand tacked onto the sweater with white thread and the track shoe is hand tacked with black onto the letter. I picked this sweater up in Hillsville Virginia, but do not know which high school or college it represented. The sweater is made of white or ivory loose knit wool and does show some soiling, very light pilling, and a few minor piques. The white plastic buttons do show some age darkening.
Most of the soiling is to the front of the sweater and is what you would expect from normal wear. The sweater should clean up well if carefully and professionally cleaned. In the collar there is a tag that is marked Sand Knit Athletic Knitwear and Clothing Sand Knitting Mills Corp Berlin, WIS. The sweater is probably made to stretch but the measurements below are flat.This is a great early sweater that will wear or display well. Measurements are below for your convenience.
