  1. Do You Remember Champion Athletic?

    While Champion Athletic is known these days for their activewear apparel for the consumer market, I was referring to their team uniform business.
  2. What throwbacks do you want to see?

    I'm surprised the Canucks have not worn this much-talked-about ensemble for one night (they did wear the 1990s "skate" jerseys for one night a couple years back). This would be worth seeing again, IMO (and yes, I like this look). I hope the NFL repeals its 'one-shell rule' so that the Seahawks can bring these beauties back.
  3. Do You Remember Champion Athletic?

    http://team.champion.com/view_catalog.html - Here is a link to their team uniform catalog.
  4. Here's something for you all: Do you remember Champion Athletic, which during the 1980s and 90s supplied some quality NFL jerseys (and supplied the uniforms for quite a few teams) and their partnership with the NBA in the 1990s (and the jerseys made for the consumer market, which you'll see quite a few of them on the streets today with significant wear), and how they were partners with Notre Dame University for half a century? (They last supplied uniforms for a pro league for the one-hit wonder [and possibly soon-to-be-revived] XFL in 2001.) https://247sports.com/college/south-carolina/Article/South-Carolina-Gamecocks-commit-Bryce-Thompson-caps-off-Shrine-Bowl-week-with-a-bang-112361399 - Take a look at the first picture. You'll see that "C" on the front of the jersey. They actually still make team uniforms! Which is nice to know, considering how Russell Athletic left that arena this year.
  5. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    ^ Although Seaver did spend one season wearing the 'racing-stripe' Mets uniform in his short-lived return to the Mets in its first season in 1983.
  6. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    The great Cardinals Bob Gibson in his 'right' uniform and the right team (the traditional style w/a buttoned jersey and belted trousers). But.... This? The beltless pants/pullover jersey combo he wore in the last five years of his career? Not so much.
  7. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Another one: Longtime Denver Broncos defensive back Tyrone Braxton played one season in Miami.
  8. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The legendary Minnesota Viking defensive end Carl Eller wrapped up his career in 1979 for the young Seattle Seahawks.
  9. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Andre Tippett, New England Patriot LB extraordinaire in the 1980s, spent his last year of his career in the first-generation 'Flying Elvis' style uniforms.
  10. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    My previous post above also applies to Jose Canseco; he spent his first season (including his brief 1985 debut stint that September) in that same A's uniform set.
  11. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Mark McGwire made his debut relatively late in the 1986 season, when the A's still wore the beltless pants/pullover jersey combo. They would change into what is more-or-less still their current look the next year.
  12. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Some teams had the MLB logo on the back of the caps in the team colors in 1992, actually. One example is a 1987-92 Mariners cap I have that is in blue and yellow (SIDENOTE: 1992 was the last year for the M's in blue and yellow, at least full-time.) But, a few teams did have the batterman logo in its standard red and blue early on (the Brewers "ball-in-glove" caps had the logo like that early on).
  13. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    I found something so amazing: The above style Andre Tippett Patriots jersey (from his final season; also the first season for the "Flying Elvis" logo) for $20, but my 30% off card (I have one left now) made me get it for $14.
  14. Searching for your 'whale'

    This is, as of late 2017, my newest 'whale'.
  15. Rare team matchups

    ^ As a matter of fact, in their last year as the Tennessee Oilers, the team wore all-white for all games.
