I think that well over half the teams in the league were wearing pullovers by the time the White Sox introduced those uniforms in 1982. The only two teams that I can think of off the top of my head that weren't wearing pullovers were the Phillies and the Yankees. The uniforms were unique because I believe they were the only uniforms ever designed and chosen by the fan base of a team in all of American sports.
