Fleer Baseball Cloth Patches - Detroit Tigers

Turning our attention to the Tigers, there are 2 City/Logo patch variations and 2 Cap/Team Name patches.

The Tigers City/Logo patch can be found with 2 different tigers:

The tiger on the left is more orange, and has a different shaped head from the tiger on the right. In addition, the tiger on the left has black whiskers which extend beyond the face while the tiger on the right has white whiskers which do not extend beyond the face. The patch on the left is the earlier of the two patches.

The Cap/Team Name patch was originally an all white Old English "D", which was later revised to be a red "D"with a white outline:

Wow on that early version of the Tigers-circle logo facing forward. I've only seen it via ebay on All Star Game cover programs on the A.L.'s 1968 & 1969 versions, and as really small. That scan shows off a lot of detail! Nice.
