1968 Fleer Major League Baseball Team Logo Tallboy Cloth Patches (American League)
From 1967 through 1975, the Fleer company issued a series of attractive cloth patches featuring the names, logos, and emblems of most Major League Baseball franchises. What I have for you today is the 1968 cloth patch set, specifically the ten American League teams from that season.
Each patch set was comprised of three smaller patches — one with the primary team logo, a smaller secondary logo hat patch, and a team name shoulder patch. The entire set measures 2.5″ by 4.2″, which is why they’re known as “tallboys” by collectors.
