This is the only time this match-up happened (November 24, 2014). Pittsburgh never played the Leafs in these jerseys the following year and the Leafs changed this past year. The Penguins changed their uniforms back in the 1990s before Toronto updated their look to this.

Here's a slightly different take on this topic. 14 years ago, the 2003 NBA Draft occurred. Aside from the legendary draft class (and equally legendary draft bust at #2 overall), take a look at the logo overlaps here:

2003 marked the debut of the Cavaliers' logo seen there, the debut of the Nuggets' new double blue/gold color scheme, while it was the second-to-last season of the horse's head in Detroit. Seeing the horse's head wedged in between those two logos really provides for a clash of eras.

 

The Raptors' logo contributes to that as well - while it would linger around for five more seasons in those colors (looking ever more dated by the year), it's an archetypal 90's logo next to two logos very associated with the 2000s.

Surprisingiy rare:

These Lions and Vikings uniforms only coincided 3 years and only 6 such games

 

Not only was that rare, but also their 2003 meeting here was the last time the Metrodome had astroturf as well.

I wouldn't consider 6 games with it being the equivalent of almost half of a regular season worth of games as being rare

No game action pics, but June 2003 marked the only time these two sets met up (Anaheim Angels/Montreal Expos):

I think I was at this game!

Of course, 11 year old me didn't realize how rare this was until the Expos skipped town.

Again, no game action pics, but 1991 was the only year/time these sets matched up (Padres/Expos)

That looks to me more like the brown and orange padres set not the navy orange. Helmet appears brown and doesnt have white/orange SD.

I don't know but on my monitor the helmet looks navy to me. The SD is impossible to tell.

Doing a little more digging I think the wall gives away the year. I believe prior to the change in color scheme the walls at Jack Murphy were green with a yellow HR stripe. After the switch to Navy/Orange the walls changed to blue with an orange stripe at the top.

It's the brown helmet. When they went to navy they switched the S to white and left the D in orange. In the brown and orange set the whole logo was orange. There's clearly no white in the logo. 

 

The other clue is the word mark. The Blue set used a white outline and an orange drop shadow. The brown set used an orange outline and a brown drop shadow. It's clearly the latter in that photo.

True, but might I just say, both teams look awesome in that pic. The Expos should never have stopped wearing light blue roads, and the Padres looked good in brown and orange, and also in blue and orange.

2003 Denver Broncos vs Cincinnati Bengals

 

According to Gridiron Uniform Database, this is the first and only time the Bengals wore all black under their previous uniform set. 

 

Man I really miss this old Bengals look.

I'm not a hater of the current set (just lose the white side paneling and it'd be fine), but the previous Bengals set was perfect.

They actually wore it twice. Game 1 against the Broncos and Game 16 against the Browns. They lost both and then changed looks to their current goofemups the next season.

The black pants made for a surprisingly good look. That whole season I wanted them to try the pants on the road with the white shirts, but they never did.

One of the best looks in NFL history, perfection.
