Uniform matchups that never happened

The Saints 1986-1995 uniforms of the Dome Patrol era never played Miami when they had the 1987-1996 aqua uniforms.

 

Miami and New Orleans played three times in that era all at New Orleans with the Saints wearing black.

I know that the Giants wore white at home against the Cowboys in the 1980s, but the current Cowboys blue jerseys has never matched up against the current Giant white jerseys.

1997, the only year these Jets and Dolphins uniforms matched up- Dolphins didn't wear aqua in either game vs. the Jets, who changed their unis the following year

I don't know if it's been brought up, but we never got to see the Baltimore Ravens' inaugural uniforms, winged B-shield and all...

...face off with any team named the Cleveland Browns:

As the Ravens switched to their current bird-head logo and (largely untouched) current set in 1999 when Cleveland Browns v2.0 started. Similarly, given that the Oilers also became the Titans in 1999, no team named the Cleveland Browns has played the Oilers since 1995 and Browns v2.0 has never played a team named the Oilers (whether in Houston or Tennessee).

 

Nostalgia has an affect. I wore an Oilers t-shirt when the Texans played at Cleveland in 2014 when a couple of friends and I made a roadie and got high fived to death by the Cleveland locals. Several people wanted to talk about Kosar and Moon. Good times, great fans.

Despite playing in the same division, the Pats have never worn their standard road white uniforms against the Dolphins wearing aqua over white since their rebrand in 2013.

Now that the Dolphins made those tweaks to their uniform, we'll never get this exact one. Since the rebrand, the Dolphins have either worn all white, all aqua, or their throwback alternates against the Pats.

In 1995, the Panthers expansion year was also the last year of the Saints' 1986-1995 Dome Patrol era uniforms.

 

Both CAR/NO games that year saw the Saints wear their black jerseys against Carolina in their white jerseys.

 

Thus, we never got this specific uni matchup which literally only coincided one year despite these teams playing twice.

 

It was not until the sixth Panthers/Saints game in November 1997 in which Carolina wore home whites against the Saints for the first time.

This one may be a bit of a stretch because it was a matchup that was two years away from happening but I wish we could have seen it. The maroon Phillies and the teal Marlins.

That would've been really cool.

I'd love to see a Texans-Redskins matchup with Houston in blue and Washington in white, even though I will have to wait for at least 2022 to see it.

Here's my dream NBA matchup

vs.

Kemba+Walker+Charlotte+Hornets+v+Miami+H

 

This matchup did happen last year: 

 

Give me Miami’s black Vice set vs Charlotte’s teal, though, and my heart might explode.

Looks like he's about to take the hardest suplex ever.
