  1. Portland Trail Blazers new logo

    Yeah, I was going to say, I haven't seen them on the benches either. I like them for the winter for around town but don't see them getting too much action on the bench. I feel like that's been Nike's MO recently with the slim fit sizes. Either that or I've been lying to myself that I'm still a men's Large and not XL!
  2. Names below the number

    That was the example I was thinking of. I think all things considered, it fit that style jersey perfectly.
  3. NFL “Gridiron Gals” Logos (21/32)

    Really wasn't sure what to expect for this concept series, but this is awesome! Very solid work. Excited to see what you have in store for Seattle and seeing lots of these, makes me jealous the Seahawks don't have some very retro alternate marks along the lines of the Colts, Packers, etc. I love those style and how you've updated them to be modern yet vintage feeling at the same time.
  4. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    The W is hard to see with the gold outline and what looks to be matte black fill. Do I hate them, no, but I wish we stayed traditional. They also need traditional stripes. If we are going to have a purple option, I think a satin purple, like the Vikings, would be a good option for us. The gold helmet was satin when these uniforms were debuted but changed back to the old gold color last year.
  5. Man, the profile on that mask i huge! I definitely miss those but forgot how large they really were. Kinda looks like Quagmire from Family Guy.
  6. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I think my favorite part of this is the little bubble pointing to the different articles of clothing. Like we weren't sure what they are. "This thing here, that's a helmet, in case you were wondering." Yes, I get that the jersey, helmet, and pants are in grey bubbles and the gloves in blue which represent the base color of that item, but it's done on such a small level it feels totally unnecessary.
  7. Football Fields with Baseball Diamonds

    I used to work for the Raiders in a small capacity but I learned that they did have two configurations for football prior to the Raiders moving to LA and ultimately coming back when Mt. Davis was built. The field ran from home plate to center field during the A's season and then 1st to 3rd once the A's were done. Season ticket holders had two different seat locations based on the the configuration to try and get them similar angles. Not entirely related, but because of the shared stadium in the 2013 season, the A's potential playoff schedule almost caused a lot of trouble for a Raiders/Chargers game early in the season. There were talks of moving the Raiders game from Sunday afternoon to be a regional Monday Night game or even switching home games with the Chargers that season but ultimately they A's schedule allowed just enough time for both games to go on as planned.
  8. Portland Trail Blazers new logo

    The swoosh on that jacket should be bigger..... I'm intrigued to see these in person. These look like Nike Therma Shpere Max hoodies which are way to warm to wear on the sideline or during shoot around.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. MLB Changes 2017

    Apparently picture day wasn't a sell out... (Yes, I know that's just a game shot behind his head shot)
  13. 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.
  14. MLB Changes 2017

    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.
  15. 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.
