Still my favorite Vikings uniform they’ve ever worn.

Which version? I like when they had the darker helmets before 2002.

To me, Willie Stargell (pictured here clean-shaven!) will be more associated with both of the Pirates' double-knit pullover jersey/beltless trouser combo sets of the 1970s and 80s (as he spent much of his career wearing them from 1970-82), than the traditional vest set pictured here (he spent his first 8 seasons, 1962-70 wearing them).

So, I'll be the one to ask: what exactly is going on in this photo?

Who the hell knows?  Maybe some publicity stunt?  Maybe just for fun?  Maybe just to get a cool picture?

I couldn't disagree more. Not only did the darker helmets not match the purple of the uniforms, but they sometimes looked almost reddish in direct sunlight.

The new helmets fixed both of those problems, and the metallic color added a little visual pop to the uniform as well.

I agree with the post above me, the lighter helmet. I just love the UCLA stripes with the logo on the sleeves and yellow outline on the numbers. Although I think I prefer the Tarkenton-era home jerseys to the Moss-era.

Derian Hatcher on Draft Day 1990 in the classic North Stars uniform which he never played in as they changed the uniform by the time he made the big club
