Pittsburgh Pirates - Barry Bonds

In my opinion, when factoring in both their home and road uniforms, the Pittsburgh Pirates looked their best between 1987-90. They wore v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands and vertical stripes on the sides, a great look now known as the Ultimate Baseball Look! They were led by manager Jim Leyland and players such as Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonilla, Andy Van Slyke and pitcher Doug Drabek and his battery mate Don Slaught. The last season the Pirates wore real athletic wear, proper baseball uniforms was 1990. They lost to the Reds in the NLCS that season and the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform concluded for the Pirates after that season. The Pirates need to return to this look again, ASAP! The fans and the players want pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants again! No more buttons and belts.
