Billy Hitchcock was the Braves manager for about a year or so in the late '60s. The Opelika, Alabama native did a whole bunch of stuff in the sports world other than managing the Braves but this is a post about cartoons, not about Alabama sports heroes. Here's the 'toon.
What in baseball slang, is a 'monkey suit'?

Upon further review, FUCK EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS. Godammit, 1950's Topps cartoonist, why couldn't you have put the monkey in pinstripes. You've ruined the joy of monkeys for me now.
And before you tell me that no one calls a baseball uniform a monkey suit, remember this is from 1953. that's like, a hundred years ago. No one says "Lay your peepers on the cool threads on that hepcat, Dad-dad-daddy-o!" anymore either. Well, I might occasionally. But I'm not normal.
