Fleer Baseball Cloth Patches - Milwaukee Brewers

Even though the team moved from Seattle to Milwaukee at the end of Spring Training in 1970, the Brewers did not have a Fleer Cloth Patch until 1971. The Seattle Pilots had 2 different sets of patches for 1969 & 1970, meaning the Brewers didn't show up in the set until 1971.

The Brewers had only 1 version of the City / Logo patch:

There are 2 versions of the Cap / Team name patch. The earlier version has no yellow outline around the team name:

While the second version does have the team name outlined in yellow:

I'd like to say Thanks to fellow Fleer collector Craig for the scan of the sticker with the yellow outline.
