#tbt No Sleeves and Pinstripes

The Pirates have always been uniform innovative leaders.

They were the first team to wear an emblem of the team's nickname.

They were the first team to wear double knit fabrics and one of the first team's to wear sleeveless uniforms (2nd behind the Reds).

They would go on to reintroduce the sleeveless look in 2001 until 2010.

Here are my 2010 Bowman paper parallels showing off some 2009 images of Cutch wearing the pinstripe sleeveless uniform.

The back of the card


  1. I liked those uniforms. Always remind me of Brian Giles.

  2. Love the sleeves...that was a classic look back in the 1950s and 1960s.

  3. The uniform was a cool alternative jersey that I wish they would bring back.
