St. Louis Cardinals - Bob Gibson

Bob Gibson pitched 17 seasons for the St. Louis Cardinals, but unfortunately wore a real baseball uniform for only the last 5, (1971-75). As mentioned in the Lou Brock entry, the St. Louis Cardinals began wearing proper baseball uniforms in 1971, crewneck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants. They switched to v-neck pullover jerseys in 1973. Bob Gibson may be most known for his incredible 1968 season, but the Cardinals were still wearing flannel then. A proper St. Louis Cardinals uniform consists of a pullover jersey with an unbroken 'Birds on a Bat' wordmark logo and sansabelt baseball pants with plenty of stripes! It's nice to know some of the all-time greats got to compete in the Ultimate Baseball Look during the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform! Bob Gibson in a St. Louis Cardinals v-neck pullover jersey.
