A glimpse of the Marlins 1993 throwbacks to be worn June 8th-10th

YES!

The original Marlins are one of my favorite baseball uniforms of all time.  I hope this starts a push to bring them back.  Too many MLB teams keep trying to reinvent the wheel when they have perfectly distinct and timeless looks in their past.

In hindsight... I really should have gotten an all-teal Florida Marlins hat....

I feel like we are probably two or three years away from the Marlins going to a modernized version of their original unis. But, they will screw it up and minimize the teal.

The original has too much teal.

 

The best thing would be in the middle of the original set and the 1997 set. Maybe the 1997 set with teal pinstripes.

It worked better with regular sleeves than with vests:

(Although that actually looks pretty bad under the lights.)

That photo reminds me of how different the dirt was at Pro Player the first couple of years...for a time, it was almost a chocolate color rather than a dark khaki.

This trip down Marlins memory lane and the way they did (or didn't) use teal at the beginning reminds me of the Astros and what they've done with orange. It's not a perfect comparison, the Astros still have the orange alt, but it does feel like they're moving away from a bright, unique look to the safety of a dark color.

Please be a fashion hat please be a fashion hat please be a fashion hat

It is a fashion cap. It's been sold as part of their 25th Anniversary merchandise at their team store since Opening Day.

I don't get why they didn't have the opposite of that hat, black with a teal brim.

I own one as a fashion cap, it's wonderful. Something like this...

The 1997 set did have teal pinstripes. It was the exact same jerseys just with black undershirts and caps. Maybe you thought they were black or were thinking of their 2003-2011 sets which had black pinstripes.

I don't think those are teal.

 

I still think the 1997 set is their best though.

Those stripes are indeed teal. (And the black hat/helmet looks pretty good...a close second to teal hats/helmets).

 

Black stripes came when they switched to the black-heavy wordmark.

Pause at 2:12... those are definitely not teal pinstripes.

 

 

But this is from 1996 (Al Leiter's no-hitter) and they definitely are teal

And I have no idea if these are teal or not

They were definitely teal... but the fact that they didn't always look teal is kinda why they were so good in a way...

 

Here's a 1997 Renteria jersey up close...

And Piazza in 1998 in teal, why would they be teal in 96 and in 98 but not in 97? They didn't go to black pinstripes until 2003

Well then go back to the 1997 set but make the logo an M instead of an F
