Matt Young, the late Ivan Calderon, Harold Reynolds, Karl Best, Bill Swift, the last Seattle Mariners captain Spike Owen, Mark Langston and "Mr. Mariner" Alvin Davis, in the Seattle Mariners' greatest road uniforms that were worn just 2 seasons unfortunately, in 1985 & 1986. A baseball uniform without stripes and a trident is just boring polyester. V-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband, a great look, the Ultimate Baseball Look during the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform!
When Ken Griffey Jr. began his pro career in 1987, his first team was the Bellingham Mariners. During that short season, Griffey's Baby M's uniform consisted of a v-neck pullover jersey with racing stripes, sansabelt baseball pants and stirrups, most likely recycled Seattle Mariners uniforms, nonetheless, it was the best looking uniform he wore during his entire career! The Ultimate Baseball Look! It has been brought to my attention that the Bellingham Mariners continued to wear the 1981-86 Seattle Mariners uniforms, the greatest in franchise history, thru the 1989 season! That is around the time I became a Mariners fan. To think the big league Mariners could have been still wearing cool uniforms then and chose not to anyway is heartbreaking. Seattle Mariners fans and players have suffered since 1987 and were subject to even more pain and punishment in 1993 when teal along with generic navy and silver were incorporated as the new color scheme. The fans want the star trident back, they want to eradicate teal from their lives and welcome royal blue and gold back with open arms. The star trident logo, pullover jerseys and sansabelt pants, royal blue and gold, are synonymous with the Seattle Mariners and Ken Griffey Jr., hell, Griffey wore the same colors in high school at Moeller.

George Brett, Willie Wilson and company in the Kansas City Royals greatest uniforms, including the pic that reportedly inspired the song 'Royals' by New Zealand recording artist Lorde. The Kansas City Royals, like every team, need to wear pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants again, real athletic wear, the Ultimate Baseball Look! For aesthetic reasons, the 1980 Kansas City Royals were better than the 1985 Kansas City Royals. The 1980 Royals just had better uniforms. Pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants are superior to a button-front jersey and belted pants.

Royal blue and gold are Seattle Mariners colors!

In 2013, the Michigan Wolverines began wearing "retro" baseball uniforms reminiscent of those worn during the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform! They consisted of v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband, now known as the Ultimate Baseball Look! Unfortunately, they weren't worn for every game. Let's hope the Wolverines wise up and make them their regular uniforms. Grow the game! Compare and contrast the recent Michigan Wolverines baseball uniforms with those worn by the likes of future big leaguers Barry Larkin, Jim Abbott and Chris Sabo in the 1980s.
Paul O'Neill in the Cincinnati Reds greatest road uniform that was worn from 1988-1992. Pullover jersey and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband, the Ultimate Baseball Look! Bip Roberts as well, pictured in the Cincinnati Reds' greatest home uniform that was worn between 1988-1992. The Cincinnati Reds before Game 1 of the 1990 World Series, Lou Piniella, Barry Larkin, Billy Hatcher, Paul O'Neill, Eric Davis, Hal Morris, Chris Sabo, Joe Oliver and Mariano Duncan. The 1990 Cincinnati Reds were the last World Series champions to wear real baseball uniforms. The Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform began with the 1970 Pittsburgh Pirates and ended for all intents and purposes with the 1992 Cincinnati Reds. Let's hope we get to experience another one soon! Barry Larkin in the Cincinnati Reds 1988-92 road uniform, Eric Davis in the Cincinnati Reds 1988-92 home uniform during the 1990 World Series, the historic 1992 Cincinnati Reds, the last MLB team to regularly wear proper baseball uniforms, pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants, Ken Griffey Sr. in the best Cincinnati Reds home uniform and Eric Davis in the best Cincinnati Reds road uniform.
