Do You Think some MLB Teams should bring back Pullovers and Beltless Pants?

I know that this is unusually weird, but I think some MLB Teams should permanently bring back the Pullovers and beltless pants. They represent championship eras in most of the following teams:

Oakland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Boston (as a third jersey), Chicago Cubs (as an alternate), Milwaukee

This style represents counterculture and rebellion in baseball as owners in the 70's broke tradition. I think tradition shall be broken in baseball once again.

Yes it represents a good time for that franchise but you don't want to get stuck in the past. Besides, back in the 70's, chances were that a team with pullovers was going to win the World Series. What teams back then DIDN'T have pullovers?

When did the Cubs win a pennant in their pullovers? In fact, was polyester even around the last time the Cubs won a pennant?

But to answer the original question, I wouldn't want to see a return of pullovers, but I think a button-down powder blue would definetly be doable...

Off the top of my head...

Phillies

Expos

Dodgers

Yankees

Orioles (I may be wrong here)

Detroit (they may have had road pullovers)

and.. uh... that's all I got.

So 20 of 26 teams had pullovers? I didn't realize it was that high.

Orioles did have orange alternates that were pullovers; their primary home and road jerseys were button-downs as best as I can remember (they definitely had button-downs in the '79 and '83 World Series). And better still, they were rockin' the beltless pants well past the '83 title.

The Tigers had pullover road jerseys until they got rid of the block arched "DETROIT".

And as I know BBTV knows, the Phillies opted for the ill-conceived "Choice C"... no buttons, no pullovers... but zippers. (Why?)

Kinda weird that the teams that never broke down and went for pullovers are 2 teams that epitomize tradition and unchanged uniforms in the Dodgers and Yankees... and the Expos. :blink:

In my (relatively uneducated) baseball opinion, I think there are two teams out there who could pull this off and make it stick: the Oakland A's, and the Cincinnati Reds.

I actually recommended choice C as an alternative to buttons and pullovers in the current Oakland A's concept thread. That's one solution I can't ever see coming back. I'd honestly like to know what their thinking was - what advantage did zippers give over buttons anyway?

That stuff is from a different era, you gotta stick with the times. Just because something reminds you of something good, doesnt mean you have to bring it back.

If the first time you got laid was in 1985 and you were wearing a Miami Vice get up, you sure as hell arent gonna be that successful in 2007 wearing that.

You know how many of us in the U.S. Armed Forces, namely those of us in the U.S. Army, are wondering precisely the same thing??? :D

At least they're not exploring the possibility of velcro adhesive for nameplates and uniform numbers...

...yet. :therock:
