Vintage Dragons Uni on Craigslist

The Uni-Watch blog today linked to a Hawaiian Craigslist ad for vintage Japanese baseball shirts.  The ad lists them as semi-pro and industrial league, but clearly one is not.  To be honest though, that era of Dragons uni is not one that had seen before and I wasn't sure if it was some sort of replica for fans or what.  Looking online I was able to find a very cool Flickr collection of photos with a pretty much complete history of Dragons Uniforms.  Thank you mimflyer436!

The uniform for sale appears to be what the team wore from 1969-1973.  A pretty awesome design that I can't believe I hadn't seen before.  Also check out the color photo of the 1968 uni's with the Dragon on the cap, another great look, especially the road version.  Hopefully they will throwback to that 1968 look at some point.
