I've been very fortunate to find some pretty great military baseball jerseys in my time, but this one definitely wins a prize! Very few exist from the pre-war era, and even fewer so from the CCC. Established as part of Roosevelt's New Deal, the CCC put men back to work on large scale infrastructure projects across the US, building roads, national parks etc. Each camp would have its own ways of keeping men fit, and baseball was a common option. Camp 3313 was established in Vienna Maryland around 1935, and this shirt dates from around then. All the hallmarks of a 30s baseball jersey including the sun-collar, button through closure and soft moleskin fabric. Included with the shirt will be a handwritten name across the back 'The "Babe" Ruth' which was safety pinned on, but I've carefully removed these to wash the shirt. Unfortunately the pins have rusted so I will send it all, but leave it up to the new owner as to whether they are re-pinned - given the rust I would recommend against it. 

Condition

The shirt itself is in great shape. There is no damage to the fabric, but the green trim has worn away in areas near the collar and around on sleeve edge. There is some light staining and rustmarks throughout.
