One of a scant few Oakland A’s players who didn’t grow a mustache as part of owner Charlie Finley’s unofficial “promotion,” Cuban-born shortstop Bert Campaneris fit in with his teammates, nonetheless. As he paced the Junior Circuit in stolen bases for the sixth time and helped the A’s to the first of three successive World Series titles, Campaneris wore this 1972 Oakland A’s alternate jersey. As Finley had boldly strayed from traditional uniforms upon his purchase of the franchise in the early-1960s, he introduced this snug-fitting knit style in 1972. Representing club making statements in both fashion and championship baseball, Campy’s green knit pullover garment features “A’s” and “19” sewn to the front in white-on-yellow twill, while “19” is sewn to the back in like fashion and “CAMPANERIS” is sewn just above in solid white twill block-style characters. Green-and-yellow striped trim lines the sleeve endings, while green-and-white striped stretch ribbed knit lines the V-neck collar. Within the tapered front tail, a “McAULIFFE” label is accompanied by a “1972” tag and a size “38” tag. Light wear is evident and we note that the twill identifiers have all been restored. Not only is this from the first year of both the Oakland dynasty and the club’s knit uniforms, but it is a one-year style as the front numbers disappeared the following season. Accompanying is a full photo LOA from Dave Miedema.
