Keith Hernandez - Cardinals, Mets

Keith Hernandez played for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1974-83 and the New York Mets from 1983-89. He won the National League MVP in 1979. He won World Series titles in 1982 with the Cardinals and 1986 with the Mets. He also won 11 straight Gold Gloves for defensive prowess at first base. Enough of that, during his career he wore the greatest uniforms for both the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets. His career spanned the era we now refer to as the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform! With the St. Louis Cardinals, Keith Hernandez wore v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants, in addition to striped stirrups, the Ultimate Baseball Look. With the Mets, Keith Hernandez wore v-neck pullover jerseys and belted baseball pants, half the Ultimate Baseball Look. Certainly, the apex of baseball aesthetics was the 1970s and 1980s!
