Ruppert Jones was selected by the Seattle Mariners from the Kansas City Royals in the Expansion Draft and became the first All-Star player for Seattle. Jones played 3 seasons for the Mariners during the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform. The Mariners, as explained in the 1977-80 entry, wore v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband, the Ultimate Baseball Look. The first trident uniforms! We only fondly remember the home uniforms from this era. Perhaps they can have a role in the Seattle Mariners - Back to the Future movement! Royal blue and gold are Seattle Mariners colors!
