  1. What throwbacks from the big four major sports(NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) that hasn't been seen before do you want to see in a game, a season, or for now on? Here's my first pick: The NFL's Tennessee Titans going with wearing the mid to late '60s Houston Oilers uniforms for a game would be cool to see, but that's me.
  2. Hey y'all, I haven't posted here before but I've been a long time follower and have recently signed up. So please forgive me if I'm posting this in the wrong spot. I know that everyone has their favorite Astros uniform, but I personally prefer the 94-99 look. It's one of if not my favorite MLB hat of all time. It bothers me that I've been looking for years for a low profile version of the throwback cap and thought I recently found as close to the actual hat as I've been able to here: http://shop.neweracap.com/style/MLB-Cooperstown-Low-Crown-59FIFTY-Cap/20948652 I needed to wait for pay day and now they no longer have my size (7 3/8). It's close to heartbreaking. They wore the road versions this past Saturday against the Rangers and I think I recall they will honor Bagwell in them on the 19th at home. Is there any info any of you can point me to that might lead me to finding a 7 3/8 size in the low profile? I know that they usually put the throwbacks up for sale near the day that they wear them but I can't help but think I'm just waiting for more disappointment.
  3. One (of my many) uniform pet-peeves is match-ups involving mixed throwback uniforms -- or even worse -- a throwback vs. current era match-up. I love that baseball is more apt to get both teams in era-appropriate throwbacks -- and to some extent the NFL in 1994 (NFL 75th) and 2009 (AFL 50th) seasons. But, the NFL and NBA have had some horrible mix-matched match-ups. I thought it would fun to find some of the worst ...
  4. MiLB "Hometown Collection"

    Am I the only one who didn't know this was a thing? Minor League Baseball is now selling retro merchandise, what they're calling the "Hometown Collection" Of particular interest to me are the two Madison, Wisconsin teams - the old Muskies and the Hatters, who were a one-year wonder when I was at the University (and who had the bestest name ever). Some of the teams and designs are very old - Ebbets Field Flannels old - but some are more recent. And those are the more interesting ones to me. Any Portland fans still missing baseball, they have this for you: I also like seeing the Queens Kings represented. They were the one-year identity for Brooklyn Cyclones after moving from St. Catherine's and while waiting for the ballpark in Brooklyn to be finished. What do you guys think? Is this old news? And what clubs would you like to see represented?
  5. As I'm sure most of you know, the Washington Redskins wore 1960s-style fauxback uniforms in 2002 for all of their home games except for Dallas (forcing them to wear blue). Does anyone know why/how the NFL allowed the team to have a full-time alternate for one year? Does that even fit within the NFL's parameters for this sort of thing? A couple other notes: -The below photo shows the team wearing their normal white-topped striped socks rather than what they ended up using. -Snyder's claim they might go back to wearing them full time is fascinating and something I never knew was considered. Here's part of a story from Scout.com about the changes: The Redskins will wear their new uniforms for this season only, though owner Daniel Snyder did not rule out making a permanent change after this year. Washington Redskins' Rod Gardner (87) and Fred Smoot (21) wear the new home-field uniform for the 2002 season during a news conference in Ashburn, Va., Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2002. The Redskins have adopted a new uniform for their 70th anniversary season, shedding the image of a stern Indian face from the side of their helmets. The revamped uniforms, which will only be worn at home games, include burgundy helmets that feature a logo with a spear and feathers, according to the team. (AP Photo/Stephen J. Boitano) Washington will wear gold pants with burgundy and white stripes and a dark burgundy top. The Redskins' helmets will be dark burgundy with a spear and feather dangling off it. But they'll only wear the uniforms for home games--it's back to the more recent jerseys on the road. However, Spurrier said the Redskins would wear white tops at home against Dallas, forcing the Cowboys to wear their less-favored dark uniforms. And Snyder was adamant that this move had nothing to do with any pressure by local civic groups to change the name. ''None whatsoever,'' Snyder said. ''We won't be changing the name for 100-years plus.'' The change is designed to commemorate the franchise's 70th anniversary. It also will boost sales of jerseys--the Redskins lag in the middle of the NFL sales for such items.
  6. We all know that Mitchell & Ness is the top name in throwback jerseys. You can find jerseys of pretty much every team from every era. But there are some jerseys that are now considered "old school", along with old jerseys they just haven't made yet (to my knowledge). My question is, what would you gladly buy from them which they have not yet made? As for my hometown picks: Dave Bing and Bob Lanier Detroit Pistons jerseys. 1935 Charlie Gehringer and/or Hank Greenberg away Detroit Tigers jersey. 1945 Hank Greenberg away Tigers jersey. 1957 Bobby Layne and/or Doak Walker Lions jerseys. Other picks: Eddie Gaedel St. Louis Browns jersey (because of the humorous 1/8 on the back) Ken Griffey Jr. late 80s/early 90s Mariners jersey (perfect time to make them, and I'm sure they'd have no problem selling them this summer) Griffey Jr. Turn Ahead The Clock jersey (sure, they were ugly, but wouldn't it be hilarious to have a jersey style that was once considered futuristic now be made as a throwback jersey?) Anaheim Mighty Ducks “Wild Wing” alt jerseys (I don't care what anyone else thinks about those jerseys; I'd gladly buy a Guy Hebert or Teemu Selanne version) 1998 Tony Gwynn San Diego Padres jersey (I'd be fine with either home or away style, I love the color scheme)
