  1. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    All I got was a Denver Broncos #7 (John Elway) jersey from the 1980s which has the name "Schoenfeld" on it, for some reason.
  2. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    ^ That is the St. Paul Saints, formerly of the Northern League, and now with American Association of Independent Professional Baseball. They're an independent minor league baseball team.
  3. Logos And Uniforms That Are So Ugly They’re Awesome

    I shall leave this here.... Oh, the same can be said of this, as well.
  4. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Brad van Pelt, best known for being a New York Giants, played with two more teams in the mid-1980s: Two with the Raiders (he's #91 here).... and one with the Browns. I can't seem to track down a pic of van Pelt as a Brown.
  5. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    The late Brad van Pelt, while best known for his years with the Giants, spent the latter part wearing the LT/Phil Simms era-uniforms. This is his "wrong" uniform for his "right" team here. SIDENOTE: The reason he wore #10 while with the Giants, despite the institution of a player numbering system set up by the NFL in his rookie year of 1973, was because he was the team's backup kicker that year.
  6. Teams In The Wrong Stadium

    Sorry to bring this back after a year, but much in the same vein as the Pistons @ the Silverdome, the Toronto Raptors spent their first several seasons @ the SkyDome (now Rogers Centre).
  7. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Here's Graig Nettles, Montreal Expos legend.
  8. MLB changes 2018?

    I gotta say.... that is a thing of beauty.
  9. Welcome to the 90's

    You know, talking about roller hockey briefly, I wish it coulda taken off as a summer alternative to ice hockey.
  10. Welcome to the 90's

    I think those were unused prototypes meant to be worn in 1994/95ish.
  11. Welcome to the 90's

    The logo dates to 1978, but this was a way of updating something from the 1980s for the 1990s.
  12. Welcome to the 90's

    More peak '90s here, this one-season wonder for the CFL's Toronto Argonauts. BTW, quite a few of the CFL's US-based teams, in their last year operating here, had some outlandish jerseys of this style.
  13. Welcome to the 90's

    For me, the discussion about the most 90s uniform starts and ends here.

    Re: The Tugboat: For a few seasons in the early 1980s, the Mariners had this tugboat that was their bullpen car. It was called the "M.S. Relief". Re: The USS Mariner: For most of the 1980s, the Kingdome, where the Mariners played then, also had this thing, the USS Mariner, which was situated in center field. Its cannon would go off whenever a Mariner player hit a home run. A miniature replica was given away at a Mariners game last summer.
  15. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The position of offensive lineman in football is not the most glamorous. With that said, this is Stan Brock, New Orleans Saint offensive tackle extraordinaire, playing for the San Diego Chargers (he appeared with them Super Bowl XXIX).
