  1. DouglasQuaid NFL Concept Uniforms 7/32 - Lions

    I like this, but I think that both the spear and feather on the helmet are too much. I would go with just one. I would also make the dark socks white on the bottom half. Good work overall though. I like these.
  2. Oldschoolvikings' Ravens Fauxback Concept Brought to Life

    I've found that many, if not most, will only print 15 or 20+ sets of decals for customers. Pro-Tuff however, will do a sample size set, which usually includes 2 sets, for a premium. Nothing outrageous by any means (around $25), but more expensive on a per decal basis than if you buy in bulk.
  3. I've been a long time peruser, occasional poster on these forums for a while now. Over the years, I've seen many great concepts, but there has always been one poster whose concepts I really gravitate towards, Oldschoolvikings. A few weeks ago, I pulled up his NFL Fauxback Thread and saw his 1965 Baltimore Ravens concept. I really love how it captured the essence of 60's design.... One of my hobbies is building football helmets. I liked Oldschool's Ravens helmet concept so much, that I decided to make an actual helmet based on his design for my personal collection. Below is the result... Big thanks to Oldschoolvikings for the inspiration and coming up with this design. Keep up the great concepts......I love 'em!
  4. Oldschoolvikings' Ravens Fauxback Concept Brought to Life

    Thank you. No, this is a full sized helmet. They look small compared to today's modern helmets. So when I'm ready to make a helmet like this, I'll send an electronic version of the design to a decal company like Healy or Pro-Tuff. From there, we work together to get the colors right and the decals go into production, then sent my way. As for the helmet, I typically restore old, used helmets. For this particular helmet though, I ordered a vintage helmet from Helmet Hut.

    I hear you man. Now we all know for sure that it's not a good look.
  6. NFL 2018 changes

    My mental image of an orange mask isn't so positive, but actually seeing it in that video makes me think it's got potential.
  7. NFL 2018 changes

    Based on that quick glimpse, I kind of like it. Of course, I would want to see it on field before making a firm decision of if it's good or not.

    I have a friend that is curious about this too, so here you go...
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I really think stripes on the pants would add a lot to these unis. Too bad they went without them
  10. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    If I am interrupting his tweet correctly, I think the jersey in the tweet is a pic of a jersey he got last year from Wal-Mart, that he believes resembles Conrad Burry's mockup.

    I don't know if this would be the right move until I could actually see it on a helmet, but maybe the 9ers would benefit from using the color shift masks USC uses. You know, the ones that are gray with a slight golden hue....
  12. NFL 2018 changes

    Made a matte finish Eagles concept a few years ago. I liked the idea of it, but when it actually came to fruition, I was kind of like, "Meh"...
  13. Best Almost Super Bowl Matchups

    If the Browns had won the AFC Championship game in '87, they would have been deemed the home team and would have most likely chose to wear white. This would make the Skins wear their rarely worn (at the time) red jerseys...

  15. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    How are home/away uniforms for the Grey Cup determined? I thought it would alternate each year between East and West, but Calgary wore their away unis two years in a row.
  16. CFL in Halifax coming soon?

    I would love to see them somehow incorporate the proposed logo from the 80s team that never came to fruition....
  17. NFL 2017 changes?

    Has anyone else noticed that some teams now feature the US flag decal on the left side of the helmet, and the NFL Shield decal on the right? In addition, it's not consistent among all teams, as evidenced in last night's Balt/Wash game (apologies for the poor pic quality)....
  18. **TEMPLATES**

    @Darth Brooks I just saw this template (yes, a year after the fact). It's beautiful! Would you be willing to send it to me if I provided my info? Thank you for your time.
  19. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Of course, it is all just opinion, but I would agree wholeheartedly that the boat logo is great. It seems to me that it is overwhelmingly popular with fans as well. Some of the imperfections that some call amateur, are endearing too many.
  20. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    ..... And that stupid truncated pant stripe. They looked so good a few years back, now it has come to this.
  21. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    To me, this is a 110% improvement over what they currently wear. I love that this features actual pant stripes versus the Twitter hashtag they wear now. Great work.
  22. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    I would rather see Calgary add gray, like they had back in the day.
  23. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    I would like to see them make the striping the same. The helmet stripes are different from the jersey sleeve stripes, which is different from the pants stripes. I also wish that they'd add some TV numbers to the jerseys. To me, the lack of TV numbers makes the uni look amateur.
  24. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    This one? One of my all time favs...
  25. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Like the dark blue Argos helmets much more than the white. Wish they had white stripes too, but these are growing on me.
