The first two seasons of the Braves’ residence in Atlanta saw a uniform set similar to the ones they wore in their final days in Milwaukee. Both the home (back) and away jerseys featured “Braves” and the front uniform number in red with navy trim. The jersey had a navy spoonhead and an Indian patch on the left sleeve.

In 1968, the home uniforms went to a white and navy pinstripe look. The sleeve patch remained, but now the front “Braves” script was done in navy, along with the back player number. It had a very basic and plain design.

That same season the road grays had a more colorful look. The front script and back number went to a navy with red color scheme. Just like the home uniforms, the sleeve patch remained. With the added trim on the font, the jersey had more depth.

The Braves had two different hats worn during this era. Initially the team kept the navy with red brim cap and put on a new stylized “A” logo in white. When the new jerseys came along, the hat went all navy.
