I got it!
When the A’s wore their Oakland Oaks throwbacks on my birthday, I realized that I had to get it. I unfortunately live in LA and the opportunity to buy the limited supply at the Coliseum didn’t happen for me.
But I found out that Ebbets Field Flannels makes them but for at a crazy $200 per jersey. I followed them on Twitter hoping that maybe one day they would have a sale. They did.
They said earlier in the week they would reveal a half-off sale on Facebook before sending out an email to the newsletter subscribers. Since I am on the Facebook, this was easy for me.
The problem was that they didn’t say when the sale would begin. They just told people to watch out. But I wasn’t going to hang onto the computer all day. I just had to hope I was online when the sale went live.
Today, the Oakland A’s will throwback to the Pacific Coast League days and will wear throwbacks of the Oaks. The Seattle Mariners will don their Rainiers uniforms.
I love these Oaks throwbacks and I hope that the caps would be available for purchase soon. I love it when teams throw back to a time that isn’t well known — especially the old PCL days.
This is a great matchup in terms of uniform and a great way to end the first half of the baseball season. Let’s hope the A’s get the win and enter the All-Star Break with a .500 record.
Thanks to the second Wild Card spot, the A’s are still in it! And overall, the team is starting to come together the way I just like it.
The first base situation is a lot better than it was last year and Derek Norris looks to be the real deal. The pitching is great and hitters are starting to find their stroke. I hope for more in the second half.
These two teams threw back to these before.
