I put some more white in between the greens for 1963-71.

What I saw for 1972+ still, to me, looked like the white was still a bit wider than each of the green stripes but there was less white showing between the greens.

Don't worry, I'm not going to look anymore...I'm already overdue with my next blog and I don't want to get in trouble with Rob. Embarassed

I am apologizing in advance here Bill! I found this out by accident on the Giants website while reading about their new alternate pants for 2013. They showed a picture of Brad Van Pelt in 1976 wearing blue pants with a white belt, and I felt obligated to do some digging...

So, the Giants wore white belts with blue pants in 1975 and 1976 (normal, not peek-a-boo).

Sigh.

Plain white belts is OK and quick no problem.

Is it just me or does that first photo look too 'blue' to not be...enhanced?

Also, do we know if they went with blue or white belts in the white pants these years?

It is a vibrant picture, isn't it?

Blue belts with white pants from '75 - '84. We have that covered, no corrections necessary! Very Happy
