the brewers' equipment manager memorial patch

bob sullivan had been with the brewers since their move from seattle when they were known as the pilots.  he was the team's equipment manager up until the time of his death prior to the 1986 season.  during the 1986 campaign, the team wore 'sully' patches on their left sleeves in his memory.  

you can see the patch on robin yount's 1987 topps card
as well as mike birkbeck's 1988 topps card, as topps used older photos back then, too.
the card in my memorials binder is this 1987 fleer charlie moore card
moore's 1978 topps card is also in the collection due to the danny frisella armband he and his teammates wore in 1977.
