    A bit more editing detail about the Winnipeg Blue Bombers jersey of 1990 to 1994. When the Bomber added the gold trim to the numbers in 1990, there was another minor alteration. The look of the logo on the sleeve changed as well. Take the blue jerseys up to 1989. Logo lettering in blue on white background. Laces and stripes on the football in white: The updated jersey in 1990 had the logo lettering in white on blue background. Laces and stripes on football in blue:

    A bit more editing detail about the BC Lions when it comes to the 1987-89 jerseys. When the Lions altered the jersey in 1987 featuring the brown trim around the numbers changing, there was also a change in the logo placement on the sleeve stripes. The 1987-89 jerseys no longer had the logo within a circle in the sleeve stripes. The logo was just placed right on the stripes without the circle around as had been the case in 1986. Case in point my model here. Canadian university football product who quarterbacked in the league, Greg Vavra. Here is 1986 for comparison: Loved the old orange and brown look! Shout out to Scott Grant Photography on these photos.

    A bit more detail about the 1993 Toronto Argonauts. The team did add Cambridge (light) blue trim to their numbers in 1993. In addition, I remember part of the season they wore the Oxford (dark) blue socks at home that featured stripes. However, they did also wear the solid Oxford blue socks during the season. Quarterback Tracy Ham's only season with the Argos was 1993. Here he is with the striped socks: Kari Yli-Renko in 1993. Can be hard to see, but you can see the Cambridge blue trim on the numbers: https://www.canadianfootballcards.com/products/kari-yli-renko-cfl-card-1993-jogo-209-toronto-argonauts-cincinnati-bearcats Some footage of the Argos on the road in 1993. Can see the Cambridge blue trim on the numbers good around 2 minute mark: In addition, there was at least 1 home game in 1993 when they went mono-Oxford blue and wore the old solid Cambridge blue socks. Here is a shot of Ham wearing that uniform in 1993:

    Yup - when the Rough Riders wore the double flaming R - they did not wear white jerseys. Road jerseys were silver in 1992 and 1993. Was not a great look in rainy weather when they got wet.

    Hey Johnnysama, It has been brought to my attention that you are looking for help for CFL Uniform Database. I took a look at your current database and if I may offer some details that would need to be revised. Will fire off some for the Saskatchewan Roughriders only at this point. Can fire off some more about the other teams later on: 1978 - The Rider wore grey pants at home instead of white. The socks had multiple green and white stripes. Here is some game footage from 1978: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLW-FCJ6rEc 1979 - Believe the Riders were not wearing the solid green socks yet. Here is some 1979 game footage with them wearing white socks with 2 green stripes at home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1NzaLoWlFs During the early 1980s, in addition to the green pants, the Riders often wore white pants on the road with the white jerseys. As seen here in some 1983 footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFDxBMYTW5U I do also believe that the Riders wore solely white pants, both at home and on the road, in 1984. 1991 - To mark the 25th anniversary of their first Grey Cup win, the Riders discarded the silver pants in favour of green. Meaning they wore mono-green like the 1966 team. The Riders did not wear the silver pants in 1991. It was mono-green at home throughout 1991. They did return to silver pants at home in 1992. The Rider started 1991 wearing solid green socks. Then transitioned to the white socks with the stripes both at home and on road. Here is some 1991 footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_MjQ4lOL00 1993 - The Riders switched back to solid green socks both at home and on the road. The striped socks would come back in 1995. Here is some footage from 1993. Also note the Calgary Stampeders road socks have 2 red stripes and 1 black stripe - opposite of what is in the current database: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjM0peIwx7I
