    Alfalfa's "Our Gang" Sailor Costume. Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer Hal Roach's Our Gang comedies are classics, and one of the funniest and most engaging child performers was Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer. Noted for his cowlick and his off-key crooning of "I'm in the Mood for Love," "Alfalfa" is one of the best-remembered of the Gang - partly because of his child prodigy comic timing, and, sadly, partly due to his tragic death by homicide (shot in 1959 over a $50 debt). This is a vintage child's-sized sailor's tunic, black with gold trim, plus white sailor hat (with studio stamp on the inside) worn by "Alfalfa" in the Our Gang shorts. A great memento of a Golden Age comedy series and a truly gifted and funny child performer. Both are in Excellent condition.
