Sticking With the Vee: 1981-1986
The 1980’s saw a gradual departure from the previous decade. The team was no longer a perennial AL Pennant contender, rebuilding from the penny pinching Finley days. These uniforms slowly went away from the A’s and began embracing their Oakland home.
Joining the rotation of jersey tops were v-neck pullovers with “Oakland” in an arched block letter script. Those came in white, gray, green and yellow. By 1985, the Athletics were only donning “Oakland” jerseys.
There was no change to the Athletics hat.
