New Yellow A's Uniforms
The Oakland A's will be adding a twist of lemon, so to speak, to their look in 2011. One of their alternate jerseys is yellow with green piping. Click here to view it. This is a slightly different take on their Sunday uniforms of the early 80's with the green piping on a white jersey (the jersey I'm talking about is the second from the left on the 1981 and '82 plates and the lead uni on the '83). I heard about the new yellow threads, but hadn't checked them out until now. I'm actually a bit more excited about them once I saw them. I was anticipating more of a lemony type of yellow, one that looked closer to their tops from that earlier era. Marketing plays into this decision, I'm sure. So, shine Athletics. Color seems to be back a bit more in baseball lately.
