    This is simply not true. The colored stitching was not popular, and definitely looked upon negatively by an overwhelming majority of the board, including me. When th template changes, the actual jersey design changes since the stitching accents the template, not the team’s identity. It’s one of Nike’s shady design elements and screw them, and screw the idiotic browns ownership for going along with it.

    Meek Mill finally got out of prison today. One of the Sixers owners was the one that picked him up, escorted him directly to a helicopter, which took him to the game, where he joined Kevin Hart in ringing the opening bell. I was there, and I think Mill got the biggest pop of the night.

    I hear ya, it’s a good question. I also hate ads, I’d actually rather it look as contrasting as possible so that it’s clearly an ad and not associated with the team. If it’s just like a patch, it can be switched to another company’s logo without altering the design. I don’t think the same is true in the Titans case and in the white jersey case here. But I get where you’re coming from.

    Though while searching, I found him in 87 with maroon. This is now the biggest mystery I need to solve.

    Looks like you need to straighten the bill, right? Won’t that eff it up? Mine has a curve in it (I think all 3930s do right?)

    Darren daulton had red catchers gear in 86. Def at home, not sure about road because he didn’t play much

    because it becomes part of the design and part of the team's visual identity. It's basically a team logo now.
  8. Old 3930 - wash or locate replacement

    Why would i need the washing machine if I've hand washed it? And would you just throw the basket in the machine and let it clank around?

    Is it this thing that they say you can use in the dishwasher? I'm not sure how it'd work in the washing machine.

    Yes it is far. On the white jerseys, it's the only noticeable use of teal - their primary color - and if you removed it, it'd be instantly noticeable and would change the jersey more than say if you took the swoosh off the Eagles jersey. It's a little less egregious on the black jersey, but again, if removed or even replaced by another brand's logo, it'd be a pretty noticeable change.

    Another example of Nike making their logo part of the actual design. It's basically the sleeve logo, and on the white jersey, the only bit of teal that's really visible. Along with the Titans, who made the swoosh red and therefore also an intrical part of the design (the look of the uniform changes pretty noticeably when that red is removed), Nike has finally totally intertwined their brand with the team's. It's way worse than the ReeBox, which still at least made the RBK logo look like an ad and not a design element.
  12. Old 3930 - wash or locate replacement

    I have this old 3930 that I used to wear for softball. I can not locate a new one (looks like they only make 5950 in this style for expos - struck out at Lids, eBay, and google) so what’s the best way to clean it? The dirt is on there pretty good, and it’s pretty “hard” from years of sweat. Looking for tips on cleaning or other places to look for a new one.

    I would love to know more about the hat and what years it was red and when it became maroon. When I was a kid I had a mesh back cap and souviner helmet and both were bright red. That was mid 80s. A few years later all you saw was maroon. I also know that one of my elementary teachers had a fitted cap (which was very rare at the time) and it was maroon. This must have been around 85 or 86. I cant find any definitive evidence when the switch happened, or if they maybe had separate homes and roads (which would actually make sense since the homes had red pins and the blue roads didn’t have much if any red).

    The number and NOB font for the Brunell are off - you sure that's authentic? The 8 should have little notches inside the squares.

    They didn't have the seam line on the jerseys for the first 15 or so years of that look because you weren't allowed to have anything that looked like a baseball on the jersey (could distract hitters by some bizarre logic) so they had a cap version (which varied greatly) and jersey version. What a lot of people also don't realize is that the jerseys used red pinstripes and they wore red caps for a while before switching to maroon. The maroon pinstripes came in 87, not sure exactly when the red cap went away.
