  1. 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.
  2. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

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

    The legendary Minnesota Viking defensive end Carl Eller wrapped up his career in 1979 for the young Seattle Seahawks.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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).
  8. 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.
  9. Searching for your 'whale'

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

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

    -vs- Again, no game action pics, but these two uniform sets met just once in 1986 (last year for that Dolphins set, before they added the Dolphin logo on the sleeves, and the first year for that Saints set, w/ the Louisiana state insignia on the sleeves).
  12. MLB changes 2018?

    I got my first look @ the new 2018 MLB BP caps at a Lids store at one of my local malls, and here is my consensus: The rubberized material on the caps used for the logos looks okay, although washing them would be a bit of a pain. Also, the material is also pretty sturdy. Eh, I'm so-so on getting such a cap, though.
  13. NHL 2017-18

    Well, I finally got to see one of the NHL Fanatics replica jerseys in the cloth (if you get my drift) for the first time at a sports store in my mall. My consensus: Yeah, it seems really flimsy. The fabric is somewhat cheaper than the old Reebok replicas, and the crests are also pretty thin. If I were to ever get a NHL Adidas jersey, I'd have to go for the real thing instead.
  14. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    I found a Tony Tolbert Dallas Cowboys jersey for $7.50, but one of my 30% off cards made me get it for $2 less.
  15. Rare team matchups

    -vs- : #1: This is the only time the black-accented New York Jets met the 'classic' Vikings getup in 1994.... #2: The above video features those same black-accented Jets (last year for that look) meeting the second year of the 'second-generation' Vikings three years later, in 1997.
