St. Louis Cardinals - Lou Brock

In 1971, following the Pittsburgh Pirates' footsteps, the St. Louis Cardinals began wearing athletic wear, crewneck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands and vertical stripes on the sides. In 1973, the Cardinals switched to v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants! A great era for baseball, now known as the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform! Base stealing Lou Brock was one of the Cardinals' stars back then. There really is nothing better than the combination of pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants the proper length, mid-calf. It's now called the Ultimate Baseball Look! Here's several assorted shots of Lou Brock in the St. Louis Cardinals' Ultimate Baseball Look! The shot from the 1971 All Star Game with Joe Torre, Willie Davis and Roberto Clemente makes you wish the Dodgers had joined the Cardinals and Pirates in wearing proper baseball uniforms, pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants. Scenes like this don't occur today because current MLB uniforms are garbage and that's a shame.
