New Marlins Uniforms?

That thing better stay there and be honored as a goddamned national treasure. It's going to be nothing but awesome, and you'll all rue the day you mocked it.

One day, it will be discovered by a future generation on an archaeological dig and every person there will look at each other and say ":censored: yeah." That's how awesome this thing is.

The monstrosity lasts a few seasons, until they need to generate more revenue by putting seats in that section of the park. Once that happens, that thing'll be out of there faster than :censored: through a goose full of laxatives.

This is the Marlins we're talking about here. Adding new seats won't add any revenue, just more empty seats.

Chances are they'll think this is proof that we were a fish worshiping people.

Reupholstery is how you show you mean business, yeah.

Agreed, assuming your business is "being Joan Rivers."

Thank you, I'll be here all week. Try the veal.

Guess the logo is legit. Here is a photo of one of the seats at the new stadium.

Actually less seats than Sun Life-- 37,000 that are covered from the elements which might have scared away fans because of possible rainouts and climate controlled for fans who didn't want to get baked. I think fans will come out at least for the novelty and IF (its a big one)the Marlins are playing well they might stay......

Going to miss playoff games with 67,000 people rocking the stadium.

That was a good series.

Would have been nice if those seats were full more often. Let's just hope that the new stadium won't be a one time stop for the curious ... Come June, everything could go back to being vacant.

Like the one color version here. Not sure about the multi-colored one that been seen. A bit too much. Maybe restraint will win out?

Looks here like the leaping abstract marlin is in front of the M at the top. That's opposite of what we saw before. Which way is it?

Here's my take on the new unis, stictly based on what we know for sure about them so far, and maybe Showtime or Unwind could say for sure how close they are without implicating a leak. I really only know "traditional" baseball designs, so this is kind of a marriage of the out of the box colors and well established uniform esthetics. Chris if you have to remove these images I definitely understand and I apologize in advance for any inconvenience. So...what do you guys think??

I like the script and colors but just my preference, i hope we dont have the trim around the neck and down the front, but nice work.

Robbman, that mockup is pretty nice looking. If they would just drop the yellow.

The road alternate looks sick and the home and road combo looks beautiful.....the Home alt not so much....

That concept is way too mardi gras looking for my taste.

I had about the same reaction as everyone else when I first saw the logo. Although I'm still not too crazy about the abstract Marlin, it has started to grow on me. And now that I've seen a few mock-ups (especially Robbman's) I'm starting to like some of the directions they could go with the uniforms. Loria may have :censored: taste, but I must commend him for injecting some much needed color into baseball.

Drop the yellow and blue, and you've pretty much nailed it.

That "M" looks a hell of a lot like the end of the Viacom logo:

nailed it as in you've seen the uniforms and this concept is close, or nailed it as in you think it looks good?
