Players in the "wrong" uniforms

Jim Zorn as a Cowboy

 

That's pretty awesome - I never knew he played for the Cowboys. And it turns out that he didn't in the regular season, just during the 1975 preseason.

 

Also under wrong uniforms for Zorn: the Packers and Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Carmelo Anthony will never actually wear it, but still can't believe he got his full salary in a buy out and still wanted a jersey.

Apparently this is a thing. Supposedly there are Rodgers-Brewers and Jimmy G-Giants jerseys floating around too.

Yeah, I saw this a while ago on the Fanatics website and wondered who would buy it.

Weird stuff. If you look up "MLB Crossover" on Fanatics you can see the other jerseys availalbe... and some Phillies/Eagles mashup hats.

I could see a Philadelphia fan wanting the hat. I could dig that. But why would anyone want these jerseys?

Did those NFL players wear those jerseys throwing out a first pitch or something? 

 

Otherwise this seems like a sad attempt to capitalize off another more popular sport's marketable stars.

What is the mystery of those jerseys?  If you're a fan of both the player and the team, then to like the jersey would not be odd.

Here's the thing I hate: names on jerseys that shouldn't have them.

People who wear these things (even with the team's own players) really deserve a slap.  And shame on the Red Sox for outfitting their own old-timers in such defaced jerseys in recent on-field ceremonies.

Here's one that I don't think is sold, but whose mere existence bothers me:

Can you imagine?  A Yankee jersey with a name is bad enough, but to give one of the retired numbers to another sport's player is taking things too far.

I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing. In fact, I like the crossover for markets that allow it.

Exactly what I was thinking.

 

Mets don't have one yet for Darnold and he hasn't thrown out the first pitch yet. Made one anyway
