  1. A creative direction that failed to attract the younger fans it targeted while simultaneously alienating and embarrassing its proud, diehard fan base... I have seen this before...
  2. I have an invite! https://dribbble.com/carlcordes
  3. Definitely a prototype with the "player" NOB... oddly enough, one of my Canadian buddies had a stag & doe party before his wedding and raffled off a few jerseys just like this one.
  4. As a casual non-baseball fan, it bothers me that a home run at one field can be an easy out at another... that takes the charm of park quirks a bit too far, IMO.
  5. If you squint, Cleveland's orange/brown/orange combo is great.
  6. I have two game-worn jerseys of my favorite childhood athlete wasting away in a drawer and I really want to step up and frame them for my office... my father is a high-end woodworker, so I am good on the hardware, I am eyeing all the UV-protecting class and non-acid backing, etc, and I will probably bite the bullet on having a professional mount everything... but I am more interested in the conceptual side since I will want to design the actual layout myself... does anyone have any framed jerseys in their home/office? Any pics of your setups or general advice? Any tips are appreciated!
  7. I simply can't imagine a team from the gaudiest city on Earth not rocking gold shells... if anything, they should ramp up the saturation to match the numbers on their Color Rush gear
  8. The jersey is a simple attendee money-grab. That said, keep everything as-is, but add sleeve numbers, replace the front number with a traditional crest and, as a Buffalonian, I would buy it for $20 at TJ Maxx in January.
  9. I have a few buddies that have worked JAPW, love the feel to this, definitely an improvement over their current dated look... personally, I would sharpen the black accents on the banner and maybe add some contour to the banner edges to match the sharpness of the light beams in the background
  10. This brings up an excellent point - Dallas is the king of sports merch... would choosing one blue make business sense? Or has Dallas moved on from this type of dual merchandising?
  11. I remember snagging this off a TJ Maxx rack in 1997/8: I assumed it was an on-field jersey since Dallas haf busted out 4-5 new looks in the past few seasons... a slightly modernized Staubach-era jersey would be an absolute home run in my book
  12. Navy over white is the best Titans look in my book... the way that uniform was designed, the light blue is a super-effective secondary color. Dark blue acting as a secondary doesn't give the jersey the same balance
  13. Slight curve on a high crown or go home.
  14. I get more of a Kit-Kat vibe off the broken pieces
  15. I am taken aback by how tastefully Adidas integrated some flare into the Vegas gold... and is that heather grey!? I'm not used to liking things.
  16. Unsurprisingly, there is very little overlap in the demographics of the NBA and NHL:
  17. Haven't had time to photograph much yet, but dropped close to a grand thrifting during Memorial Day... just a crazy amount of jerseys... this is probably the standout - a 91/92 Adidas AC Milan jersey!
  18. This wasn't a thrift store find, but not sure if it has a home elsewhere... a 2003 game-worn Raiders jersey of my for-some-reason-all-time favorite player, Rob Johnson:
  19. I am Corn-Oriole! I will see myself out.
  20. If this set goes on long enough, I am super interested to see the Sabres interpretation of the Dallas star-body uniforms!
  21. Wow, really like the Duke logo!
  22. At least in football, you have the opportunity to avoid contact. Sub-concussive impacts are a virtual guarantee in every pro wrestling match. The ring isn't as “springy” as you would expect. Add to that the total lack of healthcare in the business and you have a recipe for disaster.
  23. I would honestly argue that concussions are an even bigger issue in pro wrestling.
  24. The collective unit of the nWo Cleveland Browns.
