  1. Worth noting: new Mets owner Steve Cohen asked Mets fans on Twitter: "I would love to hear your ideas to make YOUR Mets experience better." At least one fan requested, among other ideas, for the Mets to bring back the black jerseys. Cohen's reply: "All reasonable thoughts" And despite how they're perceived on this forum, there has been growing fan & player support in recent years for the Mets to bring them back. As long as it's just an occasional alternate (and none of the extra drop shadows on every other jersey) then I'm all for it. Nothing wrong with nostalgia + increased sales revenue.
  2. The overwhelming consensus among younger fans (on reddit in particular) is in favor of the Mets in black. I was relieved when they got rid of it in 2012, it was a win from a from a design and tradition standpoint. However, I have a strong nostalgic attachment to these uniforms and I wouldn't mind seeing them as an *occasional* alternate.
  3. Misleading thread title is misleading. (Edit: Now I look silly. But new thread title is better)
  4. Long time former poster here, haven't been around in a while. I stumbled upon this clickbait article claiming "MLB is finally updating the old team logos", which I somehow doubt is the actual truth. I was wondering if any of the posters here made these? Some of them look great! And if so I wanted to bring it to their attention to make sure they're getting credit. http://jetlaggin.com/mlb-is-finally-updating-the-old-team-logos-with-some-groundbreaking-designs Apologies if these have already been posted.
  5. Well, they're not quite TATC but they're pretty close in terms of garishness. I will say though, I MUCH prefer these to all the special event/"holiday" uniforms.
  6. Mets & Phils wearing patriotic uniforms... both teams with a backwards American flag sleeve patch
  7. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/19416990/under-armour-make-mlb-uniforms-2019-year-early
  8. I remember the A's wearing Kelly green as recently as the late 90s. I can picture clear as day a baseball card from 1998 or 1999 of an A's catcher with a Kelly green helmet and chest protector. They supposedly switched to the darker forest green much earlier than that. (I think that card was before the rise in prominence of "turn back the clock")
  9. Mets look super weird with white names & numbers on the back.
  10. Not sure if it's been mentioned already (I don't recall but not about to dig back 77 pages)... We are most likely going to see new batting practice caps again this year. I just bought the 2016 authentic Mets bp cap (orange front panel/Mr. Met) for $10 at lids. I asked the cashier why it was so cheap and he confirmed my suspicion.
  11. Some unpopular baseball opinions: -Colored alternate uniforms are great. The more the merrier. -The Tigers and Yankees home uniforms are beyond boring. -The Brewers navy & yellow set looks great. -Teams with 2 different identities/color schemes (Brewers, Mariners, Diamondbacks, Padres) are smart. All about that $$. -The Mets should not wear pinstripes.
  12. It's not ideal, but are you saying it's better than having two city names in a team name (plus an "of")? I would disagree strongly. As I said, "California" is a compromise. I would personally favor "Anaheim" but anything is better than the cluster**** that is Los Angeles of Anaheim.
  13. Diamondbacks has always sounded very minor league to me. The fact that it can't fit on a uniform and has to be abbreviated as D'Bags...er...Backs... that makes it even worse. Rays is corny and weird, but Devil Rays was just as bad in a different way (also very minor league sounding). LAA of A is just inexcusable. Literally any of the other 3 past options is a 100% improvement. Los Angeles is the original name and has the literal translation of "angels". Anaheim is where they actually play and was their name when they won the WS. California has the longest history and is probably the best compromise.
  14. Diamondbacks tweaks coming for 2017. From the mothership... http://news.sportslogos.net/2016/11/12/arizona-d-backs-announce-tweaks-to-uniforms-for-2017/
  15. I enjoy the logo almost solely from a nostalgia perspective, and the fact that it's multicolored and unique/retro looking. But the design really is not great, and if it were a new logo it would be widely hated. It's always looked like "elb" to me, which I've heard explained as "Expos le baseball", also I've conflictingly heard it's supposed to be "eMb" (which it clearly isn't) for "Expos de Montreal Baseball" or something. I don't know. I see how it's supposed to be an M, but it just so clearly looks like "elb" which really makes zero sense.
  16. The "Padres" script is hands down the best script they've ever had. Blue camo looks weird but it makes sense for them (if they insist on not being a full-time brown team that is ) I'm excited to see the home jerseys now, though as has been said numerous times, it'd be great if they used the same colors for home and away.
  17. Nationals vs. Devil Rays, 2006. I fished around for photos for a while but no luck. Anyone know where I might find them? http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=260702120
  18. (While we're on the subject of 00s...) Tony Clark - unusual because 00 has always been Mr. Met's number, he's the only player to have ever shared it.
  19. Exactly. Making this: more appropriate than this:
  20. This thread seems like an appropriate place to put this:
  21. I don't see any size 8 but thank you anyway. one of them had an adjustable velcro back, but i hate adjustables. Don't know if you've ever seen someone with a size 8 head try to pull off wearing an adjustable. It is laughable to say the least.
