This is the era we get to see the Pirates colors we know and love.

Both the home (from the original Angels in the Outfield) and away uniforms take on a similar look. The home whites have “Pirates” in a stylized arched script in a black with yellow outline font. The road grays, in the same font color and style, have an arched “Pittsburgh” script. From 1954 to 1956 the road front changed over to “Pirates”.

The hat goes to an all black look with the yellow “P”.
