  1. My wife speaks Spanish, and she says all I see in that logo is "Mami"
  2. I think with a couple of reeeally small changes this could be really awesome.
  3. The Dbacks all purple home cap had an A that was jade green not really turquoise like original black road cap. Jade green and sedona red could be cool with copper and black.
  4. The Dbacks could just switch to Diamond Era caps and pretty much have the same pattern on the hat.
  5. What stinks about that new Padre logo is that it eliminates the hidden "P" in the logo.
  6. Forget yellow accents. I wish the Padres would go full "Bad News bears" yellow. Why won't a pro team do that. own yellow.
  7. Why would we assume that As for uniforms, it's something we've never seen before means something never seen before in baseball ever? Maybe he means something new that we've never seen from an old DBacks set?
  8. when I posted baseball cards I was told photos are not reliable, when someone else posts a photos, it's fact. Whatever, Your Mom's Box.
  9. Good Lord - that's your proof? I guess you can believe whatever YOU want. I post three points of proof that match up, you have a phone call and a reputation. Any proof I post automatically gets shot down as 1. Bad photos, 2. Bad coloring 3. Unreliable New Era 4. That's not what Joe told me I didn't design the uni's and I really don't care either way what it is, but prove my proof wrong by finding a photo from 1972 where the orange is the same as a photo from 1977. It's not possible that EVERY photo from 1972 has the coloring is "off"
  10. No offense, Pantone has NEVER broken any new logos. He only posted them once they were already widely available.
  11. Believe whatever you want but this Astros red and this astros orange are two different colors. I also find it odd that Okkonen's book has the "darker orange" consistent with the same years New Era is selling the cap, and the same years photo evidence makes it seem like the orange changed. That's three references that point to some form of change. Sure New Era has made mistakes, sure Okkonen colored with markers, sure photos can lie. But they all match up 1971-1974 as a darker orange. Doesn't that seem a tad suspicious.
  12. Yes I know Pantone is God, blah, blah, blah. It must be nice to have infallability, even when it is so obvious that there is proof that he is wrong.
  13. I have spent months going through photos of baseball hats to compile a master hat list. The Astros did in fact wear a red hat from '71-'74. It's absolutely not a poor color reproduction, because in no way would it always show up in every photo as red over a 4 year period. Then suddenly the photos show it as orange in '75. What happened, they suddenly figured out true color printing after 4 years of messing it up. Also, they are completely different colors in the Okkonen book. Are we to beleive that that is just a case of poor printing too?
  14. The Astros did indeed where red uniforms and red caps from 1971-1974. They switched to range caps in 1975. That baseball card is accurate.
  15. The rays should switch to Pewter and Yellow. When will an MLB team use Yellow as a primary. What better team than one form the sunshine state. Even if they play indoors.
  16. The Giants also don't have names on their home uni's.
  17. This site never ran a photo of the uni's, and it only found a photo that was on eastbay. Maybe that's the website the article is talking about.
  18. Personally I don't care either way, it's more entertaining to watch people's reactions to stories like this. "If MY team had one of these night's I'd never support the team again, and I'd cancel my season tickets FOREVER!!! And possibly kill EVERYONE around me!!!" Wow, would ya really? You would give up years of something you supposedly enjoyed because of one promotional night? I'm not sure if that's pathetic or hilarious.
  19. How come when someone asks why a team has 4 alternate caps everyone answers, "MONEY $$$" But then when they do Negro leaugue night or Hispanic night all of a sudden everyone thinks they are simply "acknowledging the past". No, sorry it's still about money.
  20. lilmoxie.com has it in sizes up tp 7 1/8 if that helps.
  21. It would be hilarious if they were using the screen name Pantone!
  22. That cap did not exist. If you are referring to that old picture of Omar Daal pitching, that is just a pic with poor color representation. They only had one road hat that year, the A on a black hat with teal brim. All the other hats (all purple, white / purple brim, teal / purple brim) were worn at home. You're wrong, it did exist, I confirmed it on a Dbacks message board. Multiple users say it was only used for inaugaral spring training. Besides no matter how bad a photo is black will never look like bright purple. The other way around maybe but not that way. Plus if the photo is so far off color-wise how come it only affected the hat.
