  1. Why does no team use earth tone colors? 

    DId someone say "earth tones?"
  2. Vintage College Mascot Logos

    Fun topic! Happy to see it resurrected! Though I can't vouch for whether the logo is a true replica of something old, or is faux vintage, I figure it belongs.
  3. MLB changes 2018?

    Using the same color as the jersey for the numbers isn't ideal for legibility. Current Angels and Braves, and former Giants all show that the legibility can vary. An all purpose solution is white, or any contrasting color. The Braves' is jarring, because red numbers are very doable. The Angels want to maximize their red usage, so maybe white numbers would make more sense. Blue would too, but may be more blue than they want in their presentation. Giants must not have wanted to look like the Marlins or Orioles by putting black numbers on a black background, but eventually succumbed. Better executed with the extra gold layer than without.
  4. NBA Changes 2017-18

    So it's Nike's fault that Miami is wearing the Vice set every game?
  5. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Joel Embiid - though it may be a minute before you see him in any type of jersey soon.
  6. Bizarre/Unusual Numbers on Jerseys

    Not as clear as the Denver example, but the Sixers did briefly employ Spencer Hawes as double zero, and Jeremy Pargo as single zero.
  7. Players in the "wrong" uniforms Papelbon pitching in a Ruiz BP jersey, no reason given.
  8. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

  9. Arena Rafters & Banners

    The same scheme as the rest of the Sixer retired numbers was used for AI.
  10. Small details that bother you

    Any gear with the words "property of" on it. You're not fooling anyone.
  11. Rarely seen jerseys

    The first year the Phillies wore the cream home alternates, they never created blue helmets to match the blue cap worn with the uniform.
  12. Rarely seen jerseys

    For one that continues to be a listed option for the team...
  13. Rare team matchups

    Last year as Devil Rays, first year of Diamondback recolor.
