  1. Next up are the Reds! REDS HOME/ROAD ALT (1963-66) REDS HOME/ROAD ALT (1967-71) REDS HOME/ROAD ALT (1972-92) REDS HOME/ROAD ALT (1993-98) REDS HOME/ROAD ALT (1999-present) C&C appreciated. The Indians are up next!
  2. Royals - Great work! I like the addition of powder blue trim to the home set. White Sox - I'm surprised by how much I love that solid cream set that uses the '87-90 script! My biggest issue here is the red undersleeves and belts on the home and home alt. There's no doubt the Sox look great in red, but I think it should always take a backseat to black as a primary color. Make the undersleeves and belts black on the home and home and home alt and you've got a winner. I'm also not a huge fan of the Sox having a red alt for the same reason I mentioned above, but you made it work by balancing the design out with black undersleeves. And as @NicDBpointed out, the piping should be consistent on the road and alts. The sleeve and collar piping on the road set should be black/red/black and black/white/black on the red alt.
  3. Up next are the Cubs! CUBS HOME/ROAD ALT (1963-71) CUBS HOME ALT (1972-81) CUBS ROAD GRAY (1982-89) CUBS HOME ALT (1982-89) CUBS HOME/ROAD ALT (1990-93) CUBS HOME ALT (Early 2000s)* *Based on this early 2000s prototype jersey. FWIW, I tried to make a red Cubs jersey but just couldn't swing it. C&C appreciated! P.S. I will try to start posting these more regularly, rather than just once a week.
  4. Thanks! I've gone back and tweaked a mistake on my '82-86 White Sox home alt set. Thanks to @Carolingian Steamroller for pointing out the error. I also came up with a new '68-70 road alt for the Orioles: And here's today's team, the Boston Red Sox! RED SOX HOME ALT (1963-71) RED SOX ROAD ALT (1963-71) RED SOX HOME ALT (1972-78) RED SOX ROAD ALT (1972-78) RED SOX ROAD ALT (1979-89) RED SOX HOME ALT (1990s) RED SOX ROAD ALT (1990s) C&C appreciated!
  5. I don't think I've ever seen anyone on these forums mock up a Sox concept based on one of those rejected '80s fan designed uniforms. Great stuff!
  6. Rockies - I really do think any Rockies redesign that aims to keep their current look needs to either A. use a MUCH lighter shade of purple or B. ditch the black altogether. I do like the new purple alt. Indians - LOVE the use of the 1940s font! It would work really well on a modern design. I'd use the arched "CLEVELAND" on the road alt so the "Indians" script isn't used on three separate jerseys. Also, the sleeve stripes seem unnecessarily thick. Can't wait to see how you handle my White Sox!
  7. That Cubs fauxback is good enough to be their everyday home set.
  8. This is a really nice look for the Padres! My only suggestion would be to incorporate some orange into the all gold set. I know that would no longer make it a true throwback, but it would create some consistency since orange appears on the other three sets.
  9. I'm jumping out of order for a bit while I work on some of the next few teams. Here are the Chicago White Sox! WHITE SOX SLEEVELESS ALT (1951-63)* WHITE SOX HOME ALT (1963) WHITE SOX ROAD ALT (1963) WHITE SOX ALT (1964-68) WHITE SOX HOME ALT (1969-70) WHITE SOX HOME ALT (1971-75) WHITE SOX HALFWAY TO ST. PATTY'S DAY ALT (1978-81) WHITE SOX HOME ALT (1982-86) WHITE SOX ROAD ALT (1982-86) WHITE SOX HALFWAY TO ST. PATTY'S DAY ALT (1982-86) WHITE SOX HOME ALT (1987-90) WHITE SOX ROAD ALT (1987-90) WHITE SOX HALFWAY TO ST. PATTY'S DAY ALT (1987-90) *I decided to do a sleeveless version of the South Siders' Go Go Sox era uniforms, inspired by the inexplicably popular sleeveless versions of the Sox current uniforms, which are themselves based on the '59 era Sox. C&C appreciated! The Red Sox or Cubs will be up next.
  10. I like this look for the Diamondbacks! I like the D-Backs in turquoise, but that's just personal choice. Replacing sand with copper makes for an interesting look. Curious how it would look if you replaced white with cream (similar to their original uniforms) but using a shade that works better with the black and red, obviously.
  11. Thanks! Up next are the Baltimore Orioles: ORIOLES HOME ALT (1963-65) ORIOLES ROAD ALT (1963-65) ORIOLES HOME/ROAD ALT (1968-70) ORIOLES ROAD ALT (1975-87) C&C appreciated!
  12. Dodgers and Seals look great! Maybe a modernized version of the Seals should include an outline around the "SF" monogram? I also really like this take on the Giants. One suggestion I have is to replace the gold trim on the alts with cream. The gold doesn't contrast particularly well against the orange and black backgrounds, and the cream would pop better.
  13. Stumbled upon this on eBay. Any chance it’s legit? https://www.ebay.com/itm/CHICAGO-CUBS-ROYAL-BLUE-PROTOTYPE-JERSEY-BY-MAJESTIC-Size-Large-/401669410641
  14. Well, it’s historically accurate: http://exhibits.baseballhalloffame.org/dressed_to_the_nines/detail_page.asp?fileName=nl_1966_atlanta.gif&Entryid=1068
  15. Hi everyone! I hope you're all staying safe and healthy during this strange, uncertain time. Since I've had more time on my hands than usual, I decided to revisit an extensive MLB project I began a while back. The premise is simple: What if each MLB team (except, of course, the Yankees) began adopting alternate uniforms starting in the 1960s? Rather than just choose an arbitrary year, I decided on 1963 as my specific starting point as that was the year the Kansas City Athletics introduced their solid green and gold uniforms. Some designs will be inspired by teams' era-appropriate batting practice jerseys, while others will be completely original. Also, teams with co-dominant colors (such as the Pirates and their black and gold) will get multiple alternates, one for each color. I tried to be as comprehensive as possible, but if I neglect to include a particular look from any team's post-1963 history--no matter how brief--please do not hesitate to point it out. I briefly considered posting teams by era, but given how convoluted that would become (some teams might introduce an alternate in the '70s and wear it for 20 years, while others might have one for only two or three seasons in the '60s, for instance) I ultimately decided to just go team by team in alphabetical order. Since the D-Backs were born in the era of alternates, we'll start instead with the Braves. C&C appreciated! BRAVES HOME ALT (1966-71) BRAVES ROAD ALT (1966-71) BRAVES HOME/ROAD ALT (1972-75) BRAVES HOME ALT (1976-86) BRAVES ROAD ALT (1976-86) BRAVES HOME ALT (2000s)* *The Braves introduce a gold home alt in the 2000/2010s because why not? I think it looks cool. I didn't do any late '80s-early 2000s alternates as they would look more or less the same as their current alternates. C&C appreciated!
  16. The new navy Angels alt is a welcome change! I like what you've done with the Rangers. I agree with @Yee Yee Go 'Stros! that you should use the block "TEXAS" on the road set. Other than that, everything looks great!
  17. I really like that powder blue alternate, but unfortunately I think it clashes with the cream colored pants. If the pants were plain white, it'd look great. I also wish there was a way to incorporate powder blue into the cap design. For the Kasota gold set, I agree with @MJD7 that the non-pinstriped home uniform should be the primary home set, as the pinstripes with drop shadowed scripts is too busy looking. Also, I don't know if this would look any good, but what if you flipped the trim colors on the red alternate's script? Gold outline with navy drop shadows? Overall I like the Metrodome set, and the alternate with the "M" logo is coincidentally very similar to a concept I have planned for an upcoming series. Looking forward to the Marlins!
  18. One nitpick: the first alt has double outlines on the script but only a single outline on the front numbers. I'd also make the script on the first alternate navy. I think the whole red on red look has really gotten stale and needs to be freshened up. And this is just my opinion, but I don't think any team needs two alternates of the same color. I know you really want to embrace the red, but I'd make one of them navy.
  19. I’d still keep the navy, but think about using a brighter shade of teal, as @QCS suggested. There needs to be more contrast between the navy and teal since they’re co-dominant colors. Love the updated Colt .45’s! The navy and metallic gold fit well with the Old West, gunslinger identity. However, I would add a white outline around the cap logo since the gold is so dark, or go with a lighter shade of gold.
  20. I actually think the flipped outline colors on the D-Backs are an improvement, but different strokes, I guess. The Braves also look great!
  21. Nice start to this series! I really like what you've done with the Astros. Combining their 2000s "railmen" scripts with their modern colors is a nice idea and makes for a clean, fresh look. The A's look pretty solid, too. Unfortunately, the M's don't really do it for me. If you really want to use powder blue, I'd just make the road set powder blue instead of gray--the powder trim doesn't look good against the gray road jersey. I'd also make the Mariners cap logo white (instead of teal) with a light blue outline. I'd then make the script on the teal alt navy with white trim. Keep up the good work!
  22. Small suggestion for the sand set: Flip the turquoise and black outlines on the numbers and scripts, since the turquoise bleeds into the sand a little.
  23. Love the idea of a “Cooperstown Collection” alternate for each team, and it works really well for Arizona given the popularity of their original look and colors. Really digging the new template, too!
