The House of David was a religious commune founded in 1902 Michigan. They operated a famous barnstorming baseball team, which toured small town America from the 1920s to the 1950s, playing major and minor teams and exhibition games. The organization also fielded nationally known musical bands between 1906 and 1927. Additionally, they also fielded a traveling basketball team, and legend has it that when House of David basketball teams played the Harlem Globetrotters in the 1930s the 'Trotters came up with the theme song "Sweet Georgia Brown" to compete with the intro used by the House of David teams. In the back collar of this jacket is the "Wilson" manufacturers tag. Inside the front zipper is a second "Wilson" manufacturers tag. Adjacent is a gold embroidered tag with player name "Leonard" and jacket size "44", both done in blue chain stitch. On the front left breast is the "1954 All American" patch in red, white, and blue embroidery. On the back of the jacket is "HOUSE OF DAVID" in red on blue tackle twill.
