  1. Well like i said i was a baby in those days so I wouldnt have remembered. your negative responses are making my head hurt. I respect the fact you informed me on the promo nights with the very old jerseys but the negative response in unnecessary, i dont know how my opinions bother you so much, just sayin if its that annoying to you then why bother commenting. But whatever i still think itd be cool to mess with once in a while not every night or every night just each year or every other year hold one retro night and promote one iconic jersey from each decade, i think all teams should do it more like the nhl does. Not just when a teams doing poorly, thats when giveaways, extra promos and fun nights for kids and crap come into play.
  2. I would think that any new jersey, outside of one-offs, would be required to have enough lead time for mass-retail production. The deadline MLB gives is more about giving retailers time to sell off the current stock than giving manufacturers time to produce for retail. Maybe one of the changes they already submitted was to eliminate the black alts. If not, they can keep them in their set for a year without wearing them. I can't think of any off the top of my head, but I think some alts were added unceremoniously in the middle of a season. I would assume the Mets would be able to add a blue alt for next year at this late a time. However, as good as the Los Mets alt looks, removing all black would be enough for me. Yeah the jersey is already made. Just take off "Los Mets" an replace with just "Mets". I know the 1999 Mariners had a navy "Seattle" alt that I didn't see them wear until mid-season when they moved into Safeco. I don't know if they were used earlier and unjust didn't notice or not, but that might be a precedence. Besides they'd still have time to unveil a single jersey. As mentioned they can just not wear the black ones or only on the road and then remove the drop shadows for 2013. That'd be a good compromise until they can drop the black. Oh man those would make excellent alternates, the blue is gorgeous and imo would be their best looking jerseys. When mitchell and ness remade the Mets (along with many other teams including the phillies and red sox to name a few) 80s blue BP jerseys i thought to myself wow thats a really nice looking jersey, they'd look excellent as alternates, who knows maybe those promo jerseys are a forshadowing of things to come.
  3. More like the primary road jersey and if the P was fat enough I would love to see the Phillies remake the 80s uni with the current P. As for the Padres... ARE U SEEING THIS MLB THE SHOW!! =) ok primary road jersey, but i dont want just a P on it, i want the whole phillies word on it just how it is here, wonder what it would look like in Red and not Maroon My bad man i didnt see your reply about not wanting the P on it however i wouldnt mind it either wa, and dude the red on the powder blue, i so gota photoshop that, ill give it a try. that was another option i was thinking about, i like where you're going man!
  4. omg man this was so totally going to me my next concept i was going to just our current font on the powder blues and even just use the current "P" on it as well. Wow my man rauuuul brought it to live and i love it i agree would look sick as an alternate for the future, im buyin this
  5. Yea i hate how majestic never uses the zipper downs, they imo looked so much nicer, and the names were arched more originally. I like the baseball swirl "P" better but like you said it was after '85. I like the lighter burgandy as well and hope we use it for next years retro night. Who knows maybe we'll wear the 93 world series jerseys with the bad luck blue helmets lol Yea right that would be a mistake. I'm hopin we go with the all swirl uni, swirl hat without that stupid big 3D logo, swirl "P" and the centennial patch with our most memorable "P's" circling the diamond, it looks really nice imo and is my fav throwback 2nd to the powder blue zip ups. 1. Who knows if there will even be a "retro night" next year, considering this is the first one (I think) in the 8 years at CPB? 2. The blue helmets were in '94, NOT '93. The differences between the '93 set and the current set are negligible even by freaks like most of us on here. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if I'm the only one who could instantly point them out. 3. Majestic doesn't have to make the throwbacks - there are other vendors who are allowed to do it - and some have used zippers. The Braves throwbacks from earlier this season had zippers. well i was 3 in 94 so thats why i got the dates wrong lol but i was wondering why we wouldnt just allow mitchell and ness to make the zipper ups for us. probly expensive i mean they are just $250-300 for the public but theyd probly work that out differently with the team. As for retro night the last one here was im pretty sure last year, then before that was 03 celebrating the last year at the vet. But anyway about the 93 retro night they wouldnt have to change anything other then the rare all blue helmet (so it would really be a retro night dont quite know what i was thinking lol), What would be cool would be to see a real old throwback like one from the 40s. Theres the one with the yellow script or the one year they were phillies/blue jays jersey during WWII. Only reason why i think these would be cool is to give fans a brief history of the evolution of our jersey since we're such an old team and never show anything pre 60's (somewhere in the 90s they reintroduced the richie asburn style jerseys, pretty much the same as todays just slightly different font with red stars on the I's instead of blue).Well i digressed but do you think that would be nice like once a year or especially during an anniversary.
  6. wow I think this has alot of potential, i really like the idea of mixing the broad street bullies style jersey with the 90s black striping. I like sets # 1 and 3 the best. nice job!
  7. Love it, its awesome sooo much better than the current one. I like it angled much better, its much more creative than just pointing straight up. Very very clever, can you get this on a shirt cause i'll certainly buy one lol And i hope their marketing designers see this, use it, and pay you for it lol

  9. And all of these differences can easily be explained due to photography, lighting, etc. Yea you guys both make very good points, and werx the lightning must play a factor especially when the photo quality was much different in those times as well, however if you watch any old games like the 1980 world series, lets say its being replayed on the MLB network, youll notice the helmets are a bit lighter and almost a purpleish burgundy, whereas the throwback night ones look so dark that they almost look like a brown burgandy (however pics from tv's never have the greatest lighting).
  10. Yea i understand, I will take some more time and make some more concepts based off of this. Anything youd like to see me use to make something a little different while using our classy logo and colors?
  11. Hey man honestly im sorry for overreacting, its true you'll never get better without the help of the criticism of those who have been doing this, like yourself for many years. Truely sorry and once I have more time i will get back to drawing board and fool around with this idea. Ok so i'm still learning photoshop, ive only been doing this believe it or not for 1-2 mnths now, it took me a long time to make that crest logo, do you think the circle with just the liberty bell or just the flyers logo would look better? Also do you think adding stripes behind the logo in the crest (like the patternt on the socks) would look ok. And should i just keep the stripes to 3 simple stripes like the front or make the front reflect the sleeves? Sorry again to you and the others i went a little over the top with.
  12. Wow excellent job, so basic yet so so nice. Do you think the sick script they have would look nice as a patch possibly inside a circle or th esecondary logo in with the hockey sticks as a patch?
  13. Frankly, it would not surprise me. Same stubborn and dismissive attitude towards criticism, same parade of sloppy, half-baked concepts (although slightly less so with Jaghee). I, unlike BNYG will go through, look at C&C and fix each jersey I posted, so just wait. Some people on here just love to bash others ideas b/c they think concepts have to be perfect. No they dont concepts are like practice b4 a game. You have to try something different and unique without being too ridiculous while trying to respect the history of the sport of whatever jersey your making. I had people bashing me over my flyers concept, I got a little defensive only b/c i clearly stated in my description that I was testing out a look and didnt take all the time in the world b/c i wanted to see what people thought of my idea then like yourself Jaghee, I'd go back and fix things after others gave me their opinions. So dont take some people too seriously, b/c some people think they know everything and i noticed that some of those people who bash others have never made or posted a concept, b/c theyre obviously either too lazy or are too afraid to be criticized. lol i know im comming out of left field with that but i notice every now and then people dnt respect others work, if a person is new to photoshop and they clearly state that in their description, than mere constructive crit will do, no need for omg this sux or omg are you in 5th grade. Unnecessary, however i'm not a huge fan of the flyers jersey, only b/c i just never liked that 3d logo, but you did a really nice job with it and worked on it for a while, I like your idea of wings on the sides of the jersey, its very different and i'm not sure how else you can use it but if you use our current logo on a more retro styled jersey that may be a cool updated pattern to use.
