1978 Mariners

All Star(s): SS Craig Reynolds (1)

Season Roundup: Not much to write home about here. In the 2nd season for this franchise they finished near the bottom of the league in nearly every major hitting and pitching category. They would finish with a record of 56-104, and finish last (7th) in their division.

Home

What has changed: There is virtually no change from last year. However, the name on back was added for the 1978 home jersey and was in solid blue twill.

Full Description: These white knit home jersey’s are a traditional V-neck pullover with blue-yellow-blue elastic trim on the collar and sleeve ends. “Mariners” is scripted horizontally and arched across the chest in lower case letters with a trident ‘M’. The players’ identifying numbers, in front, are below the crest and to the left. The numbers in front and back were a unique font to the Mariners, only the ones in back were much larger. The Name on Back, in Block Lettering, was arched and sewn on a nameplate.

Road

What has changed: Everything changed!(almost)

Full Description: The road jersey is a powder blue knit v-neck pullover with yellow-white-blue elastic trim on the collar. The elastic trim on the sleeve ends was more ornate with yellow, blue and white (see photo for details). “Seattle” is scripted horizontally arched across the chest. The players’ identifying number are offset below the crest and to the left. The numbers on back display the same font and color stackup as the numbers on the front. The name on back is sewn directly to the jersey in solid blue. Goodman and Sons is no longer the manufacturer as Rawlings takes over for the road blue. The jock tag placement is on the lower right.
