Both teams wore uniforms modelled after designs used in 1972 by the (then California) Angels and Rangers and both teams did a great job in the accuracy department. Buckled up pants, matching helmets, accurate name/number fonts – great job.
The Angels ’72 uniforms were worn only that season, 1972 was a transition year for Angels designs as their uniforms still retained the lower-case “angels” script yet their caps and helmets had moved to the upper-case “A” design. In 1971 everything was lower-case, in 1973 all the “A”s went to upper-case. The 2012 version of this uniform paid attention to this one-season mix of styles.
