About This File

Here is the 1973-1980 Oakland A's Kelly Green uniform Set. I JUST had to do these. I just LOVED the 1972-75 Oakland A's. They wore these for either home OR road games. Of course they wore their polar bear white jerseys on Sunday home games. I went along to Baltimore in 1975 with my one uncle and cousins to watch a doubleheader against the A's. The O's won both games with Paul Mitchell beating Vida Blue in the 1st game 3-2 and Ross Grimsley beat Jim Perry in the nightcap with Jim Palmer getting the save. The A's were threatening in the top of the 9th so Earl Weaver went to the mound and brought in Jim Palmer to replace Grimsley. I could tell even from up in the lower reserve that Grimsley was TOTALLY ticked at Weaver for taking him out with the end of the game being so close!!! Palmer threw 1 pitch and induced the batter to ground into a doubleplay to end the game. The pitching and the team itself was NOT the same as the previous 3 years without Dick Green and Catfish Hunter. In 1979, a young rookie named Rickey Henderson wore this uniform set as well.

I got all my info from "Game Worn MLB Jersey Guide".
