Players in the "wrong" uniforms

Recommended Posts

@Ferdinand Cesarano you posit there should be a maximum of ten posts in this thread (which covers the entirety of sports history), and one of them should be Boog freaking Powell? :lol:

That looks wrong, but not because he's in that baseball uniform.  With that thick mustache, it almost doesn't look like Lebron.

That’s what would happen if the Blackhawks and Packers mated and the offspring somehow was a baseball jersey.

Boog Powell is one of the Orioles' most prominent players, alongside Brooks Robinson, Jim Palmer, and Cal Ripken. Most people would probably believe that he spent his whole career there, as did those other guys.  He is a perfect representative of this phenomenon, much better than almost every other player presented in this thread.

The fearsome Steelers linebacker Greg Lloyd finished out his career in a Carolina Panther uniform in 1998.

I know I'm literally proving your point, but Boog wasn't a lifelong O?

He played briefly for Cleveland.

And Boog wore this set during his tenure with the Indians. :D

Pretty sure these have been posted, but also pretty sure they qualify under Mr. Ceserano's guidelines.

 

Obviously the Philies are his right uniform, but most people know he spent the first part of his career with St. Louis.  Doubt that many remember these uniforms, even though they're within the past 30-ish years.

His 229 games with the Indians certainly don’t measure up to his 1,763 games with the Orioles, that’s still 4x as long as his 50 game career with the Dodgers.

The great Redskin running back Brian Mitchell played for three of the four NFC East teams (including the 'Skins).

I knew Mitchell had a long career, and actually remember him as an Eagle. Not so much as a Giant though.
