  1. The Ravens had one year road uniforms 4 years in a row, from 1996 - 1999. 1996: inaugural set 1997: number font changed, new striping on black road pants 1998: white road pants 1999: current helmet logo, bird logo on sleeves http://www.gridiron-uniforms.com/GUD/controller/controller.php?action=teams&team_id=BAL
  2. The saga of the incorrect Avs yeti patch. It actually first appeared on the Starter retail authentic jerseys in the Avs first year in 1995-96. Starter made their retail authentic jerseys overseas, while their gamers were made in Berlin, WI, so think of their retail authentic jerseys as the original Indo-Edges. Starter corrected the error the following season on their retail authentic jerseys, and their replicas always had the correct design, however for whatever reason, CCM / Koho replicas always used the incorrect design, and never corrected it. They made Avs replicas from the late 90s - 2007, so there is a very large population of Avs replicas with the wrong yeti design.
  3. So, just a side note about the block font on those 2000 Rams... The replica jerseys made in 2000 already had the 2001 - current number font, so I would assume that was always the Rams plan, and that for some logistical reason they had to use a different font on the gamers in 2000. Even more, those early Rams replicas featured a different nameplate font that never appeared on gamers.
  4. I wad thinking the sam thing, but went to nhluniforms.com and found they only used the bridge font 1997-98 to 1999-2000 on the black alt only. The font was straightened out from 2000-01 to 2006-07 when the black jersey was used full time.
  5. Well, except for the C shoulder patch, which was comfirmed today that it's staying. Which means another Colorado themed alt is probably a safe bet.
  6. I dunno... it looks the same to me.
  7. That might be reading too much into this. I don't think the Broncos or Steelers are going white at home anytime soon.
  8. Weird.. those style yeti footprints were never used on any Avs game jerseys. They first appeared on the Starter retail authentics (made in El Salvador) the inaugural 1995-96 season only (Starter corrected the error the next season) and then showed up again on all ccm / KOHO replicas (late 90s - 2007).
  9. *minus the super ridiculous "NHL Hockey WILD" shoulder patches.
  10. John Elway in the Nike mono blue uni. He only wore this in the 1997 preseason.
  11. I think the Broncos' decision to wear white has less to do with what happened in the 70s and 80s and more to do with what happened 2 years ago, especially considering that many players that got boat raced in SB48 are playing in SB50.
  12. Two thoughts: 1. The Ravens look like a FCS team. 2. I feel a bad color rush coming on...
  13. like this? Uh, not sure what the Minnesota North Stars (now Dallas Stars) have to do with the expansion San Jose Sharks...
  14. The white pants with the blue jerseys were definely part of the unveiling. As a die hard Broncos fan and a life long uni nerd, I vividly remember that. The Broncos wore the blue pants at New England (oddly) and home against San Francisco during the last two weeks of the 1997 preseason.
  15. This certainly used to be a great uniform matchup... Unfortunately only one of these teams is interested in maintaining solid visual identity. Hense the pic from the 90s.
  16. If you're going PIT / DAL, don't you have to go SB XII?
  17. Just looking at my favorite teams... Nhl (Avalanche): NFL (Broncos):
  18. This looks like the new third to me. 1. The new third is supposed to be navy blue and not feature the Avs logo 2. This doesn't look futuristic enough for a stadium series jersey.
  19. This team is extremely frustrating to be a fan of, speaking strictly aesthetically. Why they won't change their jerseys is baffling, and now why they get rid of the foot logo is confusing. It seems like they have NO grasp on good design and branding. I will not be shocked when we see a rectangular Colorado state flag patch in all its out of place glory. Just look at the Colorado Rapids, who is owned by the same Kroenke guys as the Avs, and their new kits. RED BLUE AND YELLOW. Can someone mock up an Avs jersey with the Yeti foot replaced by a Colorado state flag?
  20. For some games in 85 and 86, only Elway wore a Champion jersey. All other players wore regular Russell Athletic jerseys. http://endzonesportscharities.org/PDFs/Uni_1986.pdf http://endzonesportscharities.org/PDFs/Uni_1985.pdf
  21. I'm hoping for an edge verison of the classic jersey, but I'm expecting a removal / replacement of piping only. I don't want to see any changes to the font or the arched nameplate. Any (horrible sounding) colorado themes should be limited to the alt.
