During Rickey Henderson's first stint with the Oakland A's, (1979-84) he got to wear some classic uniforms! They wouldn't be "classic" if they weren't pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband, now known as the Ultimate Baseball Look! That is real athletic wear! Even 1980-82 manager Billy Martin looked good during the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform! Plus, a shot of Mark McGwire, Don Baylor, Dave Parker and Jose Canseco during spring training in 1988. The mesh BP pullover jerseys are nothing new, but it's interesting that they were still wearing sansabelt baseball pants, in 1988, when they last wore them regularly in 1986. Please Lew Wolff, have the A's look good again by having them wear real uniforms again! Smokey Bear, then known as "Smokey, the Bear" says "Only Rickey Henderson can prevent forest fires!"

Early 1990s, actually 1989-91 Anchorage Bucs uniforms, similar to the greatest Pittsburgh Pirates uniforms. Pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband. The Ultimate Baseball Look! In 1992, for some reason, the Bucs replaced the sansabelt baseball pants with belted pants. Former Texas Longhorns outfielder Calvin Murray who played for the Bucs in 1990 and 1991 went on to play in the Major Leagues with the Giants, Cubs and Rangers. Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage in August 1963. Tiny grandstand. A couple shots from around 1984 of the Anchorage Bucs in some great yellow v-neck pullover jerseys, by coach Chris Bradford, members of the Bucs playing air guitar with the San Diego Chicken at Mulcahy Stadium and at Eielson Air Force Base near Fairbanks, Alaska.

Ozzie Smith in the greatest St. Louis Cardinals uniforms, v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband! That is the Ultimate Baseball Look! Love to see that Cardinals wordmark logo include a bat that isn't broken! Can you see Ozzie do his patented Opening Day flip routine in anything but a pullover jersey and sansabelt baseball pants? I can't and I know you can't either! The Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform, nothing like it before or since! It's time for another one!
Edgar Martinez with the Chattanooga Lookouts in 1986, a Chattanooga Lookouts v-neck pullover jersey from the Seattle Mariners affiliation era and future Mariners players Greg Briley, Erik Hanson and coach Roger Hansen in 1987. Look at that uniform and jersey, clearly inspired by the Seattle Mariners' 1981-1986 uniform! The Seattle Mariners affiliated Chattanooga Lookouts uniform is certainly in the running for the title of "Best Ever"! Pullover jersey with racing stripes and sansabelt baseball pants with plenty of stripes as well! Just a great look, the Ultimate Baseball Look!
