Orioles All Orange Uniform Finally Appears on a Topps Card!

46 years after the Orioles first wore them, Topps has finally created a card showing the all orange uniform that was worn briefly in 1971 and 1972:


The 2017 Topps Stadium Club card of Brooks Robinson shows him in the all orange uniform.  Here is a look at the uncropped photo:


Here are the other photos that were taken that day: 


 




Its great to finally see the all orange uniform make an appearance on a Topps card.  

Topps - great work showing this rarely seen uniform.  If you are reading this, please consider using this photo for one of your next Brooks Robinson cards so that we can also have a card showing the 1968 - 1969 Orioles vests:

I would love to see a card with the four 20 game winners like that guy designed a few years ago: http://whentoppshadballs.blogspot.com/2014/04/highlights-from-1970s-1-1971-orioles-20.html
