  1. Alternate Uniforms Worn Once Or Twice

    I believe the Angels had two as well. A red one which is more easily found as well as a navy blue one. My guess is the red was worn at home.
  2. NFL 2017 changes?

    I know I've said this before, but I wish they would scrap the monochrome look altogether. I wish white and grey jerseys pants had the same green accents the navy's do for consistency, but they would look great going: Home: Blue over Grey Away: White over navy or grey Alt: Grey over blue. It looks so sharp, wish they would try it.
  3. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    I'm not totally convinced that's a prototype. I could be 100% wrong, but my gut tells me it's not. First, when I saw this, this reminded me of some of the early China knockoff jersey styles. You could get Oilers, Flames, Blackhawks, and others on this template that were all fake if my memory serves and i feel like this was one you could get. They used air knit type material too. This jersey is also a CCM branded jersey, which could very well be how they handled prototypes, but at the time, KOHO was the branding on the 3rd/dark jerseys. By the tagging, its a replica, which should have additional branding on the right sleeve as well as an NHL puck logo embroidered on the right rear hem. Speaking of the hem, the hem looks to only be an inch or so. Back in the day, those were closer to 3" if I recall correctly. Finally, from the picture the tagging in the neck is sewn with 4 diagonal lines, when replicas had the tag sewn in vertically on either side. Again, I could be wrong but my initial instinct is this is either a fake or a fan creation and the branding was added on.

    Apparently picture day wasn't a sell out... (Yes, I know that's just a game shot behind his head shot)
  5. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    I do not know where I found this or who made it, but thought it fit in with this thread very nicely. It's a couple of years old but I think it's fascinating.

    This makes the whole Yankees/Jeter retirement ceremony even more confusing. If they could opt out (at least one of the two days) I feel like they would be the team to do so. Especially for that a jersey retirement.
  7. NHL 2017-18

    Not sure if this was posted earlier, but I'm sure it goes hand in hand with the holes in the numbers, but all of these multi-colored names appear to be printed twill. As a jersey collector, I both like and hate this. It always bothered me when Reebok went that way for replicas and the patches were done the same way on the shoulders. By the same token, when i buy an authentic jersey, i want multi-layer twill on multi-color names. I think it cheapens the on ice product to print on twill rather than have multiple layers, but i'm sure it has to do with weight.

    Just shooting a guess but that looks like it could be an off-ice officials jacket. I worked for an ECHL team a few years back and our off-ice officials were given branded jackets in a similar style jackets.
  9. As a young kid just starting to follow baseball, I remember seeing those Coke and Bud ads and thinking how lame it was they open a new park and have this old time feel. Now I really appreciate what they were going for. While we're on it, your picture below has one of my favorite aspects of Cameden Yards, is the little old-timey curly do-dads (yes, that's the technical term) in the corners of all the field signage. I think it's a great touch that add that old time feel and makes all ads uniform, which I really like. Totally unrelated, but as someone who has worked in ticketing, I have to image that little pie slice of seats are obstructed. I can't imagine you can get a good view of home plate from the first six rows or so. Finally, I have nothing as far as that Twins logo goes. #camdenjacked

  11. NBA x NIKE (NEW INDIANA PACERS SET added 7/29)

    Both look sharp and the template/presentation is fantastic
  12. Ugly unis + ugly athlete = GOLD.

    I had forgotten about the NY on the shorts. As a kid, I always thought it was weird they basically had the Yankees logo
  13. Roller Hockey International

    I used to love going to Portland Rage games. Started a life long love affair with roller hockey and hockey jerseys. Those jerseys were so perfect for the times.
  14. Teams In The Wrong Stadium

    The layout is interesting given that home plate area is in the endzone, it allows for the sliding pit. The mound appears to be placed on top of the turf too, so I'd imagine that ties into no sliding pits in that the Vikings didn't want the turf cut anymore than it has been to remove the center logo.
