Fleer Baseball Cloth Patches - Chicago White Sox

The White Sox have 2 different City / Logo Patches which can be distinguished by the fact that one has a red circle against a white background while the other has a full red background:


If you take a closer look at the batter on the patches, you'll notice that the uniform on the patch on the right is better defined, down to the pinstripes on the uniform and even a White Sox logo on his stirrups. The patch on the left is the earlier of the two patches.

There are 3 Cap / Team Name variations, with a change in the team name going from vertical (top left) to interlocking horizontal (top right):


and then switching to red when the White Sox changed their uniforms from this:

What a great site! As a Sox fan, I never understood why they're pre-1971 logo was red and black, especially for a team whose colors were navy & white, and then eventually royal & white. Great graphics! Someone of these you can't find on any logo site!
