UNIWATCH happens to be one of our favorite blogs for all things related to sports uniforms and design. They recently ran a post about an rare San Diego Padres baseball cap that was worn during the '72 season. The twist is the wide-spanning Yellow panel on the front panels. Several readers from the era commented on the rare style, sparking a full on historical mystery. Hardcore Padres fan Robert Walker offered: “That cap was only used in ’72, only on Sundays, and (from what I have found) only for home games.” UNIWATCH is currently on a fact finding mission to confirm the statement. While you are waiting take a look a some classic images from a Padres 1972 program.
