Members of the Atlanta Braves, 1987

From 1946 through 1962, the Boston/Milwaukee Braves wore jerseys featuring a tomahawk as a flourish underneath the team nickname. In 1987, 25 years after the club had abandoned the design, the Braves revived the tomahawk look. Five years later, the Phillies also returned to a previous uniform style, reviving the word “Phillies” in script lettering across their jersey front, a look that was last used by the club in 1969.
