  1. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    http://cache1.asset-cache.net/xr/103408277.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=3&d=77BFBA49EF87892102A727B1636DE2E6E37E9FAD27A1FFE9C4C5037D7D9AE79B9E5F81B0557B7927E30A760B0D811297 That's Howard Cross, who spent his whole career with the New York Giants, and the 'retro-modern' togs of the Giants is his 'wrong' uniform (he is more synonymous with the LT/Simms era uniforms).
  2. Rare team matchups

    No game action pics, but June 2003 marked the only time these two sets met up (Anaheim Angels/Montreal Expos): vs
  3. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Willie "Stretch" McCovey (the namesake of AT&T Park's "McCovey Cove") finished his career from 1977-80, where it all began (and his 'right' team), the San Francisco Giants, albeit in their double-knit pullover jersey/beltless trouser combo.

    Shall I get started? -- Nothing, as of yet (for me, at least).
  5. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Dwight Gooden, aka "Dr. K" was the last remaining player on the 1986 Mets team; this is him in the 1993-94 "Dodger script"-style Mets uniform (he's more associated with the 'racing stripe' style Mets uniforms).
  6. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    In fairness to Mr. Stewart's Dodger tenure, he did win his first World Series title with them in 1981.
  7. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Not much, just the above Arizona Diamondbacks cap for $4.
  8. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    He may have played for the Reds for quite a while, but this is his 'wrong' uniform for his Reds tenure, the current set:
  9. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Re: Mr.Negative15: The Argos uniform set pictured was worn from 1981-88. But I do agree that it is the best the Argos have looked.
  10. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    I did mention my fave Saskatchewan Roughrider look a few posts up, but to me, for my primary team (the B.C. Lions- I live in the Seattle area, which is within the Leos' proximity), the B.C. Lions- this, their uniform set from 1978-89 stands as the best they've looked.
  11. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    I agree, those late 1980s Rider uniforms were my fave (a close second? Their 1967-84 'double-stripe' uniform set).
  12. Defunct company rebrands *REQUESTS TAKEN*

    I have ideas for three companies, two from within my home of Seattle, one from the NYC area: First one is of Pay 'n' Save, which was a leading drugstore in the Northwest, #2 was Frederick and Nelson, which was a department store (which closed down in 1992, around the same time Pay 'n' Save shut down)... #3 is of Caldor, a leading store in the New England area that shut down in 1999.

    ^ Amazing finds, I must say.
  14. This was one of the first posts I made when I joined this site 10 years ago, and since it's bad form to bring back a 10-year old thread, I will make a new one. ---- I feel like the 1980s was the apex for sports uniform design. In baseball, you had quite a diverse mix of button-front shirts and pullover ones, and ones with belted trousers and beltless ones too. The designs also were quite awesome, and the stirrup length were, I feel, just the right way. Football-wise, jerseys still had sleeves, and you also had some cool and colorful designs. And in hockey, what can I say? So many colorful designs! I like the Kings and Canucks uniforms from that decade.
  15. That logo looks familiar...

    ^ They almost look like the New England Patriots uniform of that era, except with touches of silver on the pants and helmets.
  16. What I have here, is a fauxback uniform (to 1986) of the Single-A South Atlantic League baseball team Greensboro Grasshoppers (a Miami Marlins affiliate). I know, it may seem simplistic in design, but that was how many minor league baseball team uniforms were then; the majority were hand-me-downs from the parent clubs they were affiliated with. This is my first crack at designing a uniform, but I hope I can do more in the near-future. I hope you all like this.
  17. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/washington-redskins-tight-end-frank-wycheck-during-a-game-in-1993-picture-id77260323 This is a jarring sight- future Tennessee Titans legend Frank Wycheck started his career with the Washington Redskins. He also wore #22 with them, so this is a double wrong.
  18. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    It's been a while since I found something, but I got a Frank Wycheck Titans jersey for $8.
  19. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Will say this about the Argos helmet: The stripe makes what was once a 'blah' helmet much better. Now if the Ti-Cats can put a yellow stripe in their helmets (like they did in the past), that would make it look better, as well.
  20. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Shaun Alexander in the classic Seahawks getup. Spent his first two seasons in those uniforms. A rare shot of Bengals legend Anthony Munoz sporting the Cleveland Browns-esque Bengals uniforms. He only wore it in his rookie season. You've seen Drew Bledsoe in the current Pats getup- here he is in his rookie year, in the first-generation Flying Elvis look. He is more associated with the 'huge shoulder logo' era of that team.
  21. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Digging way back on these... That's Falcons great Steve Bartkowski in the early Falcons set. He's more associated with this set: -and- http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/running-back-clarence-harmon-takes-a-handoff-from-quarter-joe-of-the-picture-id78306386 When you think of Joe Theismann, you associate him with the white-on-burgundy look of the Redskins, and not with yellow pants as pictured here.
  22. Unusual Montreal Alouettes Jersey

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/252992396989 - Came across this is on ebay; it's a Montreal Alouettes jersey, but the then CFL/LCF logo is located on the rear top (below the collar) and the Adidas logo is on the front collar, where normally the positions of both would be the other way around. Also of note is that there's a Ripon Athletic tag on there as well. I take it this must be a prototype jersey by Adidas before they launched their new uniforms for the CFL last year. Anybody know anything more?
  23. NHL 2017-18

    Unlike the Canucks, the Kings partial striping make this one, well, merely okay. I can live with it in this case.
  24. NHL 2017-18

    Or, just make the white stripe go all the way around the collar. Why couldn't Adidas do that?
  25. NHL 2017-18

    As predicted, the Canucks and Kings stood pat with their looks (both teams merely re-adapted their uniforms for the new Adidas template); unfortunately, the collar shape and design is what ruins it for them. *sigh*
