There was no NBA when the first jerseys were made in 1901. The jerseys were long shorts with padding. There was a version with a three-quarter length and a sleeveless one, too.
Michael Jordan entered the NBA wearing the long shorts and baggy T-shirt he had requested. In 1989, Champion began mass-producing the jerseys. Nike first produced the new NBA jersey in 2017. They upgraded the clothing technology to make the jerseys more helpful to professional and amateur players.
Today, the jersey remains one of the most iconic symbols of the sport, and we highly recommend grabbing a few if you’re making basketball jewelry for sale or giving it away.

Have you ever wondered how basketball was invented?
Originally used to hold peaches, basketball baskets eventually gave way to the nets used by athletes to dunk the ball and score points in the game.
That’s what a young athletic director in 1891 used to make up a new game to keep his students interested on a chilly day.
James Naismith, then 31, taught at the YMCA Training School (now Springfield College) in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Apparatus work, calisthenics, and marching were the typical winter sports, but they were hardly as exciting as lacrosse and football in the warmer months.
Naismith’s design aimed to make the game accessible to a broad audience while retaining a high level of strategic depth.
It was essential that the game could be played indoors and that multiple people could participate at once. The students needed a vigorous workout, but the game couldn’t be as physical as football, soccer, or rugby, which could lead to severe injuries in a confined space.
Naismith went to the school’s janitor in search of two square boxes to use as baskets. The janitor returned from his search with two peach baskets.
Two peach baskets, made by Naismith, were affixed by him to the bottom rail of the gymnasium balcony. The railing on the lower level of the balcony was precisely 10 feet high. Students competed against one another in teams, each attempting to score by placing the ball in their team’s basket.
Someone at either end of the balcony would get the ball and put it back in play when the ball went into the basket. When students first started playing, it descended into a full-on brawl.
Naismith claims that the boys started a free-for-all in the middle of the gym floor during the crunches by tackling, kicking, and punching each other.
Hit a Home Run with Beautiful Baseball Charms in Sterling Silver
Baseball will always be in the heart, and you need high-quality baseball charms to complete themed sports jewelry.
Some of the world’s most popular sports, including basketball, gridiron football, and basketball, can trace their origins to the United States. But, despite the growing influence of Latin American and Asian players and leagues, baseball is still the most associated with the term “national pastime” in the United States.
The tradition of watching and playing football is inextricably intertwined with the history and culture of the United States. Over a hundred years ago, Walt Whitman said that baseball was “America’s game.”

Make your design stand out with Xinar’s sterling silver baseball jersey charm. Like the basketball jersey, the baseball jersey is equally iconic and is easily identifiable from any angle. It exudes the entire sport; you cannot go wrong with including it in sports jewelry design.
Since the inception of baseball, there have been numerous iterations of the uniforms worn by MLB teams. After finishing college in the late 19th century, Kathy Blanke was put in charge of choosing baseball uniforms for the entire league. Their improvised wool uniforms gave way to mass-produced polyester team brands under Blanke’s direction.
Since 2020, Nike has been under contract as the official provider of uniforms for Major League Baseball.
Though it wasn’t strictly enforced at first, every MLB player had to wear the same uniform.
The Cincinnati Red Stockings’ tremendous success first popularized the practice of using a team’s stocking color as an overt symbol of its identity. The Chicago White Stockings of 1876 sported a rainbow of headwear.

If the baseball jersey is iconic, you can bet that Xinar’s baseball player charmwill bring equal symbolism and beauty to your baseball jewelry creations. Our charm features a figure sweeping the horizon after a mighty swing, with the legs perfectly poised after the energetic movement.
Where did baseball originate?
Perhaps you’re familiar with the heartwarming legend of how baseball was invented in Cooperstown, New York, by Abner Doubleday. But, to some extent, that’s not true. The true origin of baseball’s creators is a bit more complicated and less romantic than popular myth would have you believe.
Baseball originated sometime in the early 1800s, combining several older stick-and-ball games. Cricket and rounders, two English sports, were among the many sports that may have served as precursors to baseball. Games similar to these were also played in ancient Egypt, among the Mayan peoples, and France.
To the early nineteenth century and New York, where groups of men began creating rules for the game, we owe baseball’s inception.
The Knickerbocker Base Ball Club in New York is given credit for making the first serious effort when its rules committee drafted a set of twenty rules (dubbed the Knickerbocker Rules) that established foul lines, the distances between bases, the maximum number of outs, and did away with the “dodgeball” rule that allowed a batter to hit a runner with the ball to get him out.
Baseball bat charm
If you’re looking for a differently-shaped baseball charm to help put the central element in focus, we recommend our sterling silver baseball bat charm. Measuring 1/8″ x 1-1/8″ and weighing just 1.1 grams, this classic baseball bat design would go well with any design vision for DIY sports jewelry.
Where did baseball bats come from?
In baseball, having the right gear can make all the difference. The first bats used in baseball were made of wood. Players in the past were forced to improvise with whatever tools they had available, in stark contrast to modern players who can buy high-quality gear specifically for their sport. In the 1840s, wooden bats were first used for baseball.
Any random piece of wood would do!
Historically, bats have been flat and tapered at one end to improve grip.
Made from tough hickory wood, these bats were sturdy and long-lasting.
Most players eventually learned through trial and error that rounder bats provided a more solid point of contact.
Wooden baseball bats came in an array of lengths, widths, and shapes because there were no regulations at the time. Players’ enthusiasm grew in tandem with the game’s rising profile.
The 1970s marked the debut of Aluminum Bats. When used by a batter, these bats allowed for a more manageable swing weight without sacrificing striking power. In addition, a baseball player’s sweet spot will be more prominent on an aluminum bat because of the bat’s hollow design.
Aluminum bats made it easier to swing the bat and increased the speed of the ball hit by young baseball players. In addition, it’s been found that bats with hollowed-out barrels provide a more even distribution of mass, leading to more hits.
