Ken Griffey Jr. and the Big Red Machine

Ken Griffey Jr. in a Big Red Machine era Cincinnati Reds uniform in 2000. Pullover jersey and sansabelt baseball pants. Compare Junior's uniform with that of the original Big Red Machine's George Foster, Cesar Geronimo, Ken Sr., Pete Rose, Dave Concepcion, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez and Johnny Bench and below that, Rose, Morgan and Bench at Riverfront Stadium. That Reds uniform, while distinctive, IMO is inferior to the 1990 Cincinnati Reds' uniform which was worn from 1988-92. Still, the Big Red Machine were Ultimate Baseball Look pioneers when they began wearing baseball athletic wear in 1972 and you got to respect the fact that the Big Red Machine team wore low cut stirrups and sansabelt baseball pants the proper length, mid-calf. Another image to add, Ken Griffey Jr. on a 2006 "First Pitch" Upper Deck card in a Big Red Machine era road uniform, pullover jersey and sansabelt baseball pants!
