TruSport Brand

TruSport was a brand name of merchandise distributed by Edw. K Tryon of Philadelphia. Knives, tools and saws from the 1800's were stamped with the truSport brand. Eventually TruSport was used for athletic goods. Below are ads for different TruSport athletic products.

It is interesting that some of the TruSport products do not identify Edw K. Tryon as sole distributor. The box below simply states "Sports of all Sorts"

This very nice "Glenn Chapman" model glove below carries the TruSport cloth patch and was undoubtedly made by an independent manufacturer for Edw. K. Tryon Co.

Here are some TruSport mitts from a 1939 Edw. K. Tryon catalog. A pretty nice selection. ImageImage
