When the Oakland A's dynasty came to a close in the late '70s, the team quickly deteriorated into American League bottom-feeders. Hall of Famer Red Schoendienst spent two of those brutal seasons wearing the green and gold out by the Bay, and now those classic uniform jerseys can be yours.They are all-original and signed by Red on the fronts. The 1977 home model has proper tagging with number 43 and last name sewn directly on the back. The 1978 green top also has proper tagging with name sewn directly on back and number 2 below. The 1978 white jersey is made from a lighter material and was only worn during spring training or batting practice. It features the number 2 on the back with washing instruction tag only. Also included in the lot is a pair of white pants tagged 1976 but worn in 1977, a white and green coach's hat with "43" under the brim (1977), and three pairs of yellow socks along with a green pair of stirrups. The A's were an atrocious 63-99 in 1977 and despite a respectable 61-56 record by mid-August the following season, the team collapsed down the stretch, winning just eight of its last 45 games to finish 69-93. Red returned to his old stomping grounds of St. Louis the following year as a coach and special assistant to the general manager.
