Oakland Athletics - Rickey Henderson

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!"
