In 2013, I’ll be most hyped to see 42, the real life story of baseball legend Jackie Robinson. The film starring Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford and Alan Tudyk went through a grueling spring/summer production schedule, the majority of which took place outside in historic ballparks all over the country. Word on the street is Ebbets Field Flannels produced all of the period-perfect baseball caps and uniforms. The uniforms are so historically accurate that they have soft bills and were made out of vintage bolts of flannel from the 40′s and 50′s. It makes me wonder where they’re keeping the leftover props from the film. I’d love to score a cap or two. Perhaps I’ll get lucky on eBay one day. Meticulous attention to detail will make this film shine. Check out the official trailer after the jump.
