Having introduced the Great Northwest to the big leagues back in 1977, the Seattle Mariners have enjoyed a storied history, but are one of just two franchises to have not yet made the Fall Classic. The M’s are winners here, though! These (6) jackets were issued to and/or worn by Seattle principals during the past 38 seasons. With twill identifiers and proper tagging, the garments show varying degrees of wear and include a vintage jacket with the inaugural “pitchfork” logo, as well as a 1988 jacket worn by coach Howie Bedell.

Seattle Mariners 1977 Jacket: a blue satin-like button-down garment with two front pockets and “Seattle” arched atop the back in yellow-on-white twill. Undoubtedly a cold weather road garment, the jacket features a thick quilted lining and a detachable zippered hood. The right-side button path’s interior is home to a “Rawlings” size “46” label. The absence of name or numeric identifier makes it impossible to attribute use to a specific player, though the style and tagging are definitely professional model attributes.
Seattle Mariners 1977-1980 Jacket: a blue satin-like button-down garment with “Mariners” sewn across the chest in yellow-on-white twill, while blue-white-and-yellow striped stretch ribbed knit lines the collar, waistline and sleeve endings. There are two front pockets with leather points on the ends. The right-side button path’s interior is home to a “Rawlings” size “46” label. The absence of name or numeric identifier makes it impossible to attribute use to a specific player, though the style and tagging are definitely professional model attributes.

Blue-and-yellow striped stretch ribbed knit lines the collar, waistline and sleeve endings. Within the collar, a “Starter” label denotes size “XL,” while the interior is home to an additional “Starter” label with black marker notations of “Bedell.” Bedell coached the Mariners in one season (1988) only.
