Los Angeles Angels PCL 1955 Throwback Jersey 2012

The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim turned the clock back to 1955 last night by wearing the uniforms of the Pacific Coast League’s Seattle Rainiers and Los Angeles Angels, respectively.

Both teams went that extra mile by wearing helmets which matched their throwback uniform and several players hiked up their pants for that classic high-socks look.

No names on the backs for either team, no MLB silhouette logo on the caps or the jerseys, however the Majestic logo appeared on the sleeves of both jerseys.

The Seattle Mariners really played up the throwbackness (is that a word?) of this game by using the retro logos for both teams on their outfield scoreboard as well as changing their Twitter profile photo to that of the Rainiers cap logo.

Here’s a look at the original Seattle Rainiers uniform, and a shot of the original LA Angels jersey.

See below for some photos from the game:

    most throwbacks are overshadowed by the team’s normal helmet- but the full body look here is great!

    I was at the game, loved both the jerseys. I’d really like to know where I could the Angels one though. Anyone? By the way great site. I did notice these teams aren’t part of the history of the PCL on this site or it doesn’t show at least the Angels prior to MLB.
