Jason Giambi, age 19, living clean and pure, wearing pullovers and sansabelts and loving every minute of it!
George Brett wearing the 'Ultimate Baseball Look', v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt pants. This was indeed 'The Golden Age' of the baseball uniform.
The '83 uniform by itself is mediocre.

Terry Francona, age 19, head full of hair, wearing pullovers and sansabelt pants, and loving every minute of it.
For a time, in the '70s, the Rangers had 2 button pullover jerseys. Who came up with that idea? V-neck pullover jerseys are better than any jersey with any amount of buttons. With that said, here is Bump Wills, son of Maury.

Joe Morgan wearing Oakland Athletics v-neck pullovers and sansabelt pants. The Reds' were better.

Ken Griffey Jr. in 1997 wearing the 1977 Mariners v-neck pullover jersey and sansabelt pants and stirrups!
Orel Hershiser in 1982, what a nerd. Albuquerque wore athletic wear but the Dodgers didn't?

Rod Carew again. How lucky was this guy? He had the fortune of playing in v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt pants the majority of his big league career.
This guy is looking good.

"I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)
Dave Parker and that mask is about the scariest looking thing I've ever seen on a baseball diamond. I'm sure that image induced nightmares in small children.
Tried to find a good picture of one of my favorite pitchers of that era, Mark Langston, but only found this small pic of a baseball card. Most of the much better photos of him I found were while he was wearing the button up jersey with belt (my preferred look, by far over this little league uniform he is wearing in this 1985 baseball card pic). Being a Mariners fan, I am sure you must have a better pic of Langston in your beloved sansa-whatever. I loved the era growing up then, but do not prefer the uniforms of that time. I do enjoy the pictures in this thread, however, because it reminds me of all those players I loved to watch play and collect their cards! Thanks for the work in digging up these photos! I will post more when I have the time to add to this great collection of 70s and 80s players.

v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt pants represent the 'Ultimate Baseball Look' and were main reason, the only reason it was the 'Golden Age' of the baseball uniform.
The uniform is the reason for the age of the uniform. Got it.
