Gold is good for a 50th.  Even if it does take them into Brewers territory. 

It's very Padres that the border looks almost the exact same as the piping on their 04-11 alts:

The Padres' 50th anniversary logo leaked on a OYO Sports box:

I think it'd look better without the gold outline, especially since it will be worn on white/gray jerseys most of the time. Gold 50 is fine...but the outline is sorta superfluous.

Would it have been a cringe but kinda awesome solution for them to intentionally include ALL their color options into that one logo? Just imagine that.

Not a fan of it. There's much too dark blue and the friar gets swallowed up. A brown/yellow patch would have been amazing but probably wouldn't pair well with their current set.

True, but that was also borrowing the Brewers' color scheme.

WHICH Brewers color scheme 😁

The one I want the Brewers to give up anyway.

Came across this Mets picture in recent days and had questions...

 

Is it just me or does the helmet decal here look raised/3D based on how the light is slightly reflecting off both the top of the N and the top of the Y? I wanna say there's on way they had a 3D logo back then but I wanted to see if anyone had any info on this. It just seems way too strong of a raised reflection to be just a coincidence...

Lastly, just curious if anyone had any backstory or reasoning as to why the Mets basically had the same New York wordmark as the Yankees in the late 80s?

I think it's just thick die-cut vinyl.

I have had a couple 80s helmets in my collection, the decals were really thick back then.  Sixteenth of an inch, at least. Maybe closer to an eighth.

I can only presume that they were looking for something clean and modern to compliment their racing-stripe jerseys.  The old style lettering would have been very jarring on that jersey.

 

Perhaps they didn’t think it read as “Yankees” to them.  Keep in mind that the Yanks themselves almost abandoned that road wordmark a decade before, didn’t see it as important to their brand.

The "50" resembles the numbers from that era of uniforms too.

I was always fond of the 1987 jersey. Too bad it was only used for that season. I'm not sure how true this is but it apparently wasn't well liked by some of the players.

I'm pretty sure it's the custom number font they created that matches the wordmark but they only ever use on social media.

The Braves will supposedly announce a new uniform at their upcoming Chop Fest event on Saturday 1/19.

 

If I called the shots:

 

Primarily wear the classic white and gray, the main uniforms are too good to be minimized with too much alternate uniform usage.

 

Wear the traditional navy/red cap full time, including on the road (as opposed to the all navy cap with the gray set).

 

Use the navy road set at most once a week (you can keep the all navy cap for this set, but only this set). This uniform is worn way too much on the road.

 

Keep the cream throwbacks (still think they are one of the best in baseball), probably once a week.

 

Pick select weekends to wear powder blue Dale Murphy and Hank Aaron feather throwbacks, they don’t need to be part of the regular rotation.

 

—————

 

What more do we possibly need? I can’t imagine what this new uniform could be, unless it’s another throwback.

 

Also, I’m completely against the red jerseys. They stunk with Chipper and the current flag themed ones aren’t great, either. Look like a minor league team.

Maybe they are going to ditch the tomahawk and just go with wordmark? 

 

Wouldn't surprise me. I'm actually kinda shocked there hasn't been more backlash about it with everything thats been going on with Chief Wahoo.

Within 10 years, Braves will have a patriotic meaning (land of the free, home of the brave) instead of Native American.

Just change the tomahawk to a fireman’s axe. That’s a little less unfortunate implications than going from an unapproved Native American identity to a ‘Murica identity.

I wonder if the Braves will “promote” the cream alternate to primary home (and either keep cream or make it white) and then make a road grey to match. So basically a set pretty close to what they wore in ‘66:

(but with “Atlanta” instead)

 

To be honest, I’d be completely 100% fine with that.
