    Old school --lower case, non-caps in branding

    The Seattle Mariners wordmarks from 1977-80 and 1981-86 can be considered an all-lower case logo.

    Adidas NHL Throwback Jerseys

    They look awesome, even thoguh Gretzky played for the Rangers when their blue jersey had a lace-up collar. That little thing notwithstanding, these look awesome, and are in good quality just like the CCM vintage jerseys of prior years.

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    ^ What irony.

    One area I had trouble with early on is when the Saskatchewan Roughriders added the 'circle-S' logo to the jersey sleeves of their 'double-double' striped jerseys from 1967-84. Thankfully, this 1980 action shot featuring Ken McEachern put that at year:

    2019 MLB Changes

    Out of all those uniforms, the 1976 and 1990 (which is the same as the '76 set except for red shoes, striping down the side of the pants and three stripes on the sleeves) are my faves.

    I got a Baltimore Orioles BP jersey for $3 today.

    2019 MLB Changes

    Same here. I'd also want them to go a step further and bring back their road uniforms from 1977-98 w/the white outline on the script/names/numbers and the white-blue-white sleevet rim.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    Tangentially related, but I find it quite peculiar that Tom Jackson was ahead of his time in that he wore a skill position facemask.

    Also, the Detroit Lions 1940s throwbacks have been worn as one-offs again from 2001-04, and again from 2008-10.

    ^ Possibly one of the rare examples of a non-white road jersey out there in football.

    Hi. You can call me Johnny. I'll be sure to get all the details corrected in the near-future; the green/white striped socks from '78 were worn in '77; in at least 1976 (and maybe before), they wore solid green socks.

    Also, the Redskins' 1930s throwbacks were worn in 2012; they were previously worn (with some modifications) in 1994.

    The Flames and Capitals new retro alternate jerseys also qualify, as they were worn under the old Reebok template for a few years, and have come back Adidas-ified.

    Throwbacks of Throwbacks

    OK. I've been thinking. There have been some uniforms seen recently that are throwbacks..... of throwbacks worn in the past. What examples can you think of? All I can think of right now is the 1950s-era San Francisco 49ers uniforms worn by the team for select games this season that was worn in 1994.
