(Paige, 59, would pitch in the Majors that season, when he appeared for the Kansas City A's in September.)

Ken Griffey Jr in an Angels jersey

I have been looking for this picture for years and I have the context as I actually saw this game when it happened.

 

Griffey was wearing a Jim Edmonds jersey and was covered with bandages to rib on Edmonds' plethora of injuries.

Griffey’s glass house must have looked nice.

This idea of wearing an opponent's uniform to rib him reminded me of Rick Dempsey's famous Robin Yount bit, co-starring Sammy Stewart in the role of Jim Palmer.

I would say DeMar in a Spurs jersey is more wrong than Leonard in a Raptors.

 

But, then again ... who knows how Leonard will be in one?

Was DeMar ever a Finals MVP with Toronto? No. This is much more wrong for Leonard, who will likely wear this for one season at most.

He's too busy being a b/#$h to even show up to games while he's "hurt".

I had no idea this ever happened. Or that he played until 2004!

 

So which is Ward's correct uniform?

 

This?

Or this?

This for sure!,

 

 

but I’m gonna have to disagree with @BJ Sands on Kawhi, it’s more wrong for Demar to be in a spurs jersey, he actually liked being in Toronto, and was the face of the team for years, while Kawhi shared the spotlight with San Antonio’s elders during his success, and wanted out.

Another piece in the Spurs-Raptors trade... I don't have a picture of Danny Green in a Raptors jersey, but we can agree that this is the wrong uniform for him:

Ward had a 12 year career in the NBA, ten of them with the Knicks. versus what was basically a 2 year career as a football player at Florida State. 

 

The Knicks is most certainly his RIGHT uniform.

What was with the kerning on that number font?

 

My favorite thing about vintage jerseys is the needlessly wide kerning!

Ward also won a Heisman Trophy as a Seminole, so I wouldn't exactly say his football uniform is wrong.

DeMar is going to be in that jersey for three years, Kawhi just one before he likely bolts to the Lakers. And Kawhi is one of the biggest names in basketball and won a Finals MVP with the Spurs. DeMar is pretty good, but his biggest playoff moments are laying bricks for a team that's never been to a Finals.
