Not much changed for Pittsburgh’s core from the middle 1950s to this era.

The home and away jersey went to a vest styled top. The “Pirates” script in black with the yellow trim remained the same. In 1962, the player number was added to the front of the jersey in the same color and font as the script.

There was no change to the hat, as it still was black with the yellow “P”.
