  1. MLB Changes 2017

    I thought the original one was from the 70s and the second one was from the 80s (since it was worn at wrigley for 80s day). If I recall, the first was a what if 1979 and the second was a what if 82 or 83 when they first were used/hyped. This is a quote from an old tb times article "The Rays are unveiling a "road" version of their retro "fauxback" jerseys (more gold) and caps (less blue) for Sunday's '80s day game in Chicago." EDIT: after a quick search, I found the original rays article with Joe Maddon on deadspin and it was distinctly called 1979 uniform. I already posted the 80s quote for the Cubs game, but they hyped this year's game vs the A's as 1970s...so I guess we have no actual answer of which year a non-existent uniform was worn on a non-existent team lol. I guess it's feasible to think they could still have been worn in 1979 through the early 80s http://deadspin.com/5920016/heres-the-rays-1979-throwback-jersey https://www.bleedcubbieblue.com/2014/8/9/5985531/rays-cubs-throwback-weekend-fauxback

    You mean it's not about living the dream from a little boy to becoming a major leaguer and the down right love of the game and being thankful? Next, you gonna try to tell me NBA jersey ads aren't about global marketing and community relationships lol
  3. The Buccaneers are in all white this week...with pewter socks and pewter pant stripes so apparently they now have 2 sets of white pants this season.

    So we know when the devil rays became the rays, but given their 2 fauxbacks, when did the rays become the devil rays?
  5. NFL 2017 changes?

    You know, I'm a die hard fan and have been more than willing to give this, um overhaul a chance, but after hard knocks ep 1, I have to agree. It didn't help Gruden was on the show and kept having super bowl flashbacks showing the old ones either. The only upgrade (imo) is the shade of red and orange. I think the pewter yokes would be better reduced to maybe sleeve caps and I echo the orange alternate comments too. I just keep thinking how long the bills had their previous set though...
  6. NFL 2017 changes?

    So we're the bucs new white pants a surprise? Did they just alter the stripes (red replacing pewter)? Are they going to be one of those teams with two sets of whites?
  7. I saw on the bucs twitter they are going red over white. Is this the first time in the redesign they wore that combo? Also, is this the first time in the redesign that they have no patches? They had the anniversary patch and the MG memorial.
  8. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    With the cavs, the lack of navy on primaries on the last set (and new whites) always bugged me. Describing your "wingfoot" in your redesign speech bugs me more. Still not over sponsorships.

    I think the m twins hat is better than tc. Just my opinion. What's funny is, on here you get crucified for wearing a special uniform and not matching the batting helmet. If you don't think the twins are going to get heat for this half a-- job, your silly. I think the whole set would show how inferior the current set is.
  10. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I don't follow basketball, but me just being a super casual observer here, my thoughts are they are trying to be soccer with "global" logos, sleeved jerseys, no set home/road, color vs color, and worst of all, uniform advertising. I mean good for them if that's their goal, but I have a feeling this isn't what Naismith envisioned. Lol
  11. I collect MiLB hats (have almost 200). Quick question. The Montgomery biscuits had a fan design a hat. The winning entry (the biscuit lid) is now showing up for sale. My question is, is this just a "fashion hat?" Are they going to wear it on field? I heard it won't be worn on field, therefore I'm not sure about adding it to my collection. Thanks
  12. Road Gray vs alternates: All-star game

    And normal caps. Those caps threw off the whole look. If you're going that route, might as well make the uniform different too. Not what I'd pick, but I can't get over it for some reason.
  13. Detroit Tigers alternate jersey

    Maybe I missed something or misread the posts about the cards, but do you not consider the cream St. Louis as an alternate? I'm a little more modern, but I don't mind a rarely used color jersey. There are 162 games in the regular season and if the tigers wore navy say 10 times, it wouldn't kill anyone.
  14. What is this Devils Baseball Hat?

    Sorry I don't have the answer, but it looks like a ripoff of the Greensboro bats logo.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    What is the reason why the NHL disbands alternates when they switch jersey manufacturers? Did the other leagues do it? I don't think they did. 82 games is too many for white vs color (imo) or to be stuck with a head scratcher (Edmonton in orange).
