Oakland Athletics

I don't do baseball uniform concepts and the baseball uniform concepts that I often see are almost always terrible, however every once in a while, something worthwhile will turn up. Today, we find an Oakland Athletics concept from a very unlikely place, the CCSLC, again from the user "Djruggs". I often wish the A's would just combine their uniforms from 1986, the last year they wore v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants, with their 1987 uniforms, the year they went to nonsensical buttons and belts. The only thing the 1987 uniforms have over 1986 is the 'Athletics' and 'Oakland' script on the jerseys. Well, "Djruggs" created a concept that combined the best of both Oakland Athletics worlds. V-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants, real athletic wear, for the Oakland Athletics, the Ultimate Baseball Look. Of course, we would want the great Oakland A's elephant logo to be placed on the left sleeve. Also, a photo of Rickey Henderson, with Lou Brock, in the previous style Oakland A's uniform, everything's fine except for the boring block letters. This "Djruggs" is a breath of fresh air, especially considering he's a CCSLC member.

  1. yeah i agree the a's have such classic uni history its hard to look at the current set and be satisfied. the worst is the all white pants with no side piping or anything combines with the yellow alternate. i wish theyd at least add some stripe to sides of home/away and maybe redo the alt to have the yellow or green pants from 70's to match jersey. i like these though.
