Click to view: 1968-1986   2014-present


New button-down jerseys debut, bringing back the script of the 1955-60 Kansas City Athletics. The HOF Database also shows white and green alternate pullovers - I've never seen one, if anyone has more info, let me know.



The Athletics bring back the elephant sleeve patch for the first time since 1960 when the team was in Kansas City.



With the white elephant patch on the road shirt too hard to see, it's changed to green.


Rawlings, Russell Athletic

Oakland A's 25th anniversary patch worn in 1992.


The first letters on both jerseys are modified - the "A" on the home gets a second serif, while a curl is added to the "O" on the road. Gold trim added to NOB on both jerseys. Sleeve patches change to an elephant holding bats with its trunk. An all-green road cap with a white logo debuts.
