The Early Years: 1969-1971
Joining the NL in 1969, the Padres took a more conservative approach to their uniforms. This was before the double knit phenomenon that swept baseball and it left San Diego looking plain and basic.
The road gray uniform had a similar look. “San Diego” was on the front in an arched script in brown with a yellow outline. The same on the back player number. For 1969 only, the team also had an off-white “Padres” jersey top. It’s hard to find whether this was a home or road top.
