MLB warm-up jackets from the 60s thru the 80s

1. 1970 Topps #86 Lum Harris

Starter jackets did not exist in 1969, but they must have later ripped off whoever designed this beauty.

I'm almost certain this pic was at Connie Mack Stadium during the weekend of May 9-11. Orlando Cepeda is wearing #20 in the background ... he switched to his more familiar #30 after Ken Johnson was sold to the Yankees on 6/10/69.

Great list!  I always liked this model sported by Dock Ellis.  The script and number on the bottom of the sleeve are nice touches.

Excellent find regarding Ellis, I will add that one, thanks.

Fun list. Hard to pick a favorite.

Thanks for those various Cardinals ... I'll add some of them where I see a subtle difference.  They seem to have the same logo, but with different collars and cuffs.  I won't add the one from 1962 ... no logo, although it's possible that none of their jackets had logos in 1962.

I won't add the Jeff Leonard one for the Mariners ... the logo is so small that I'm not what it is.  As an aside, the styling of that jacket is butt ugly.  I've seen better examples for the Mariners and will add them later.

Yes, the 1978 Montanez is a good one, especially with the 100-year NL anniversary patch so prominent in 1976.

Hard to think of too many, if any, other teams that affixed their special season uniform patch on everything the way the Mets did with their Silver Anniversary season of 1986

Thanks for the leads on the KC A's and NY Mets.  Struck out trying to find a good one for the Red Sox from '60s in the regular issue cards ... maybe there's one in the tribute/reprint cards.

Milwaukee Braves
I had to do a little research.  The photo used is from the Baseball Hall of Fame collection and is of Warren Spahn in September 1960.

Good find re Spahn, thanks.

Thanks for the suggested Cubs above.  Tried to find a Cubs jacket from the 1960s, but no luck so far.

Thanks for lead on Greg Thayer, a total unknown to me ... doesn't have a Topps card.
