As of 1970 spring training began, the players showed up and they were still officially known as the Seattle Pilots. After a few weeks of spring training players weren't getting paid, and finally on April 1, 1970 the Seattle Pilots were bankrupt. This gave six days for the former Pilots players and equipment to get from Utah, site of spring training, to Milwaukee. Because of all the travel from Utah and only six days till opening day, the now Brewers played in their old Pilots jersey's with the Pilots logo ripped off. Thus the Brewers kept an almost identical color scheme as the old Pilots.
I hope you enjoyed a quick look down memory lane of Seattle's first MLB team! Enjoy my card set below from the 1983 Renata Galasso Seattle Pilots. There are no star players, but I love these cards!
