  1. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    How could we have gone three straight pages w/o mentioning the 1970s/80s Phillies road suits?
  2. Interesting Field Designs

    ^ Kinda looks reminiscent of NHL '94. I kinda like it.
  3. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    A two-fer: Bud Harrelson, the only Met to take part in both of their World Series championships (1969 as a player, 1986 as a coach), in the uniform of the Philadelphia Phillies. And here he is as a Texas Ranger.
  4. Funniest Sports Logos

    I don't know about you, but there are some logos in sports that are just plain LOL-worthy. I nominate two: The Toronto Rock (NLL)'s original logo was the CN Tower using a lacrosse stick as a guitar. What a crazy idea for a logo. The logo for the 1940s Baltimore Bullets in the ABL/ABA/NBA (the former two leagues were the NBA's forerunners). Why is it showing a basketball dying? It just looks rather silly by modern standards.
  5. Player-Team-Uniform Similarities

    Gary Carter and Keith Hernandez, teammates on the 1986 New York Mets World Series championship team, wore uniforms that had racing stripes on that at some point or another (in addition to the Mets, Carter played for the Montreal Expos when they had racing stripes, and Hernandez in his one season with the Indians in 1990, wore racing stripes as well).
  6. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    Well, I found a Rochester Red Wings cap for $2 and a Seattle Mariners 1981-86 "Star-in-trident" cap for $16.
  7. What throwbacks do you want to see?

    RE: The Turn Ahead the Clock uniforms: The Mariners will bring back the "Turn Ahead The Clock" uniforms from 1998 this June.
  8. Best Almost Super Bowl Matchups

    Had the Seahawks prevailed in the 1983 AFC title game, a Seahawks/49ers Super Bowl in Super Bowl XVIII would've given us this awesome matchup, visually speaking. And the same could be said for a Jaguars/Panthers matchup in Super Bowl XXXI. Can you believe these expansion brethren were one step away from the Super Bowl during the '96 season?
  9. How much can you "update" a classic?

    The Phillies' current set, now having been use for over a quarter-century, is a modernization of their 1950s-era togs. It is a modern classic, and the zenith of their identity (I also do like their 1970-91 burgundy era sets).
  10. same name, same team, same number

    The Los Angeles Dodgers had two different Johnsons wear #26: Charles (above) in 1998, Brian (below) in 2001.
  11. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    The only two-time Heisman winner, Archie Griffin, in his "wrong uniform": He spent the last two years of his pro career in the "tiger-stripe" Bengals set (he's more associated with the more plainer looking set); he appeared in Super Bowl XVI wearing that very uniform pictured.
  12. Which Minor League Baseball team's cap is this?

    ^ Just checked it. You are right, it's the Vermont Lake Monsters! Thanks.
  13. Self-explanatory; I found this at a Lids store in the Seattle area last month- anybody know who it is? Thanks.
  14. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    Found a Patrick Willis 49ers jersey for $20, but I couldn't afford it nor can I like the 49ers "Elite 51" Nike jerseys. There was also a Bernie Kosar Cowboys jersey as well for that same price, and a mid-1990s Texas Rangers jersey.

    Another year, another thread full of thrift store finds. ---- Post away right here. This text is just a placeholder.
