Fleer Baseball Cloth Patches - Cincinnati Reds

The Reds are tied with a few other teams for the fewest number of different Cloth Patches as they only have a total of 3 different stickers over the entire 7 year run of the series.

There are 2 variations of the Fleer Baseball Reds City / Logo patch, with the only difference being the (R) just below the logo on the patch on the right.

The patch on the left without the (R) is the earlier version of the patch.

For the Cap / Team Name patch, there is a single version:

It appears that Fleer used the above design for the Reds all 7 years as I have yet to come across any variation to this patch.

UPDATE: 09 / 12

Thanks to Ray for bringing another variation of the logo patch to my attention.  Here is a variation where there is red piping on the uniform and the "c" on the cap is white:

Ray - Thanks for this great find!

I have a version the hat on top of the baseball has a white letter "C"
oppose to black. A sublte difference, but still a variation

You probably would like to add the variation of the Red piping on the players sleeves. and the white "C" on his cap.

The Reds have an additional variation of the player wearing red piping on his shirt sleeves. Also, his cap logo is white.

Great catch! I'd never heard of this variation. Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention. I've added a scan of the variation you have found.
