I recently completed a trade on Twitter for a stack of Brewers Pocket schedules. I'm posting one per day to archive them here. My 1986 example features the WCTV-18 style. This schedule is similar to the 1985 WVTV-18 schedule featuring a very comic book like Brewer featured on the front and from my brief job around the internet the only sponsor to be featured on this design for that year. Man how great would it be to see a game for under $10 for great seats.

Keeping on with my newly acquired Milwaukee Brewers pocket schedule from a recent Twitter trade is this great 1985 example featuring what looks like a Charles Linnett portrait of manager George Bamberger. Just a quick google search shows a ton of different advertisers for this year's schedule. I love the time capsule of information this little quadfold this schedule holds from game times and opponents to the special events and promotional nights that were held that year. The schedule also keeps the team colors color scheme.

I had mentioned a few posts ago that the example pocket schedules I'm posting are just one's I have in my possession from a recent trade and there are likely many different variations of schedules based on advertiser and also different styles all together. None more evident that this example with WCLO proudly emblazoned on this one. WCLO is a Janesville based AM station with WTMJ being the main Milwaukee area Brewers station. And a quick eBay search confirms there are many, many variations of this layout, plus numerous other totally different schedules. Schedules like this would have been available to grab at gas stations, bars, and other places like that in the Janesville area.

Next up in the stack of pocket schedules I got from my recent Twitter trade is this 1983 example. I should point out I'm no expert in pocket schedules, but I would hazard a guess that in any given year there might be more than one design floating round, so the examples I'm posting are just of the ones I have in my possession.
The 1983 schedule keeps the same County Stadium diagram, Brewers TV station map and color scheme for the calendar. The High Life add is similar to last year's but different and the front of the schedule we get a nice nod to the Crew winning the pennant the year before.

I recently completed a twitter trade and was able to acquire a nice stack of old Brewers Pocket Schedules and I thought I'd scan and post them on here to document them so other pocket schedule and Brewers collectors can enjoy them.
First up is this great 1981 pocket schedule. Very utilitarian. Don't forget Cushion Night!
