And how long did it take for the pinstripes to show up on a Topps card?
Two years. This 1959 card of Moe Thacker is the only card in the '59 set that shows a home uniform. Most of the pictures on cards from the late 50's look to be taken in New York, Philadelphia, or San Francisco.
The 1960 set has several cards with pictures from Wrigley Field, but they don't give a full look at the home uniform.
Finally in 1961 we got a card that gives a great look at the home pinstripes.
Popeye in pinstripes.
29 years later, Popeye in pinstripes again.
