    ^ They've always looked that way on the authentics, actually. I own a 1990s-era Cardinals road jersey, and the birds look just like that too.

    ^ It sure is, it's close to the on-ice models of the era! You've got yourself an awesome jersey there.
  3. Thrift Store Gems 2016

    Well, today was quite the bonanza for me: A late 1980s Detroit Tigers BP jersey for $7, and a Bo Jackson Raiders jersey and a late 1980s Texas Rangers BP, both for $16 combined!

    ^ They were caled "Telephone Exchange Numbers", or central office names, and they were a distinguishing and memorable name assigned to a central office. It identified the switching system to which a telephone was connected. Each central office served a maximum of 10,000 subscriber lines identified by the last four digits of the telephone number. This was the predominant phone numbering system prior to the advent of the current all-numerical phone numbers first used in the mid-1960s.
  5. 2016 CFL Uniforms

    I will add this to my opinions: While many of the uniforms, IMO, have been major misses, one thing that I am at least grateful for (and slightly feared beforehand) is that the CFL didn't incorporate the three-stripe design in any of the uniforms (the adidas logo on the upper back area notwithstanding). Gives me a bit of hope for the NHL in a couple years..... That said, the lack of TV numbers on a few of the uniforms also kinda bothers me.

    Oh, my. Man, there have been quite a few misses with the CFL's 2016 uniforms under Adidas. As I stated, I really do wish now that Nike should have gotten the uniform contract. However, there were, to me, quite a few hits among those misses. GOOD: Montreal (if it ain't broke, don't fix it, they say, and they did just that), Toronto (ditto), Winnipeg (the classic colors are back, and I like it!), Calgary (not gonna complain about their look overall). FEH: Saskatchewan (why no TV numbers?!), Edmonton (their striping pattern went back to the 1996-2011 one), Hamilton (okay, but the front wordmark is too huge), Ottawa (not much to say, really.) BAD: BC (Why, oh, why did you have to come up with something so hideous? Maybe I'll wait a few years and see whether it gets them to a Grey Cup championship to change my mind.)

    Sadly, that Tiger-Cat jersey looks almost like a generic jersey you'd find at Wal-Mart and the like.
  8. Neither the Minnesota Wild or the Columbus Blue Jackets have also never worn a throwback uniform; I guess you could call both teams 'established' now. Also, both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Carolina Panthers have also never worn a throwback uniform either.

    The helmet looks great to me. I like how the logo has been enlarged by quite a bit.
  10. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Here's the late, great Deacon Jones in a different shade of blue; that of the San Diego Chargers.

  12. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Wendel Clark as a Quebec Nordique. This is all kinds of wrong here.
  13. Draft picks in their new uniforms 2016

    Our #1 pick (and I mean overall).
  14. Thrift Store Gems 2016

    Found a Boston College hockey jersey, but that is it today.
  15. Rare team matchups

    http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/austen-lane-of-the-jacksonville-jaguars-pressures-matthew-stafford-of-picture-id155473733 Only meeting ever between those two uniform sets, in 2012. The next meeting this year will have the Jags in their completely different uniform set, and the Lions will be due for a change in the not-too-distant future.
