True to 1974, the uniforms worn last night were pullovers featuring the blue and white jerseys with a feather design on each sleeve. The cap was royal blue with a white front panel and lowercase script “A” in red. Pants were belted with a thin blue and white stripe up the sides.
Atlanta even wore the proper 1974 batting helmet designs, including the silly-but-accurate white brim. Well done, Braves.
There were two issues quite noticeable, one was the inclusion of the MLB silhouette on the back collar. While this patch is just normal to us fans in 2014, it was not worn back in 1974. MLB clubs would not begin wearing this patch until the 2000 season:
Also the Majestic Athletic logo, the company which produced the jerseys, was visible on the sleeve. Due to the feather design the “M” logo had to be moved off to the side instead of being placed centred to the arm as it usually is, which was a little weird to see. Might have been a better idea to omit it, as well as the MLB patch, altogether:
Overall a job well done by the Atlanta Braves, Majestic Athletic, NewEra, and Major League Baseball to get these uniforms looking the way they did. The inaccuracies were minor and did not detract from the overall throwback look of the uniform.
