  1. Nice work! I'm going to agree that the old west versions are my favorites, but I do like the ones inspired by the 1990's uniforms too. And the haboob version definitely verifies that you're a local!
  2. The 1990's looked good for the time and the Suns may have been the best of the bunch, but the NBA uniforms from that time period are so dated.
  3. The Suns really should just go back to their 1970's uniforms and then fire anyone who brings up changing the uniforms again.
  4. I was going to make one for my favorite team, but they beat me to it.
  5. Loose Balls was really the first book that made me think what a great idea it would be to collect basketball logos for historical purposes. And I have a copy of John Fulgaro's book somewhere. It's very ambitious, even if the quality of some of the logo scans is a little lacking at times.
  6. Oh yes. I have been collecting NBA logos since I first got access to a scanner years ago and scanned the black & white logos from the NBA guides from the 1960s, 70s and 80s. (some of the earliest versions of these logos on CCSL were colorized versions of these)
  7. Universally - Camouflage uniforms eliminated - Event uniforms and colors eliminated (enough with the pink already!) - Base uniforms (home & road) must be worn 75% of the time and in all postseason games - Base uniforms can be changed after three seasons - No jewelry - No BFBS or GFGS - Teams must have legible numbers which are a contrasting color to the uniform for good visibility MLB - Pants must end no lower than mid-calf - Players must wear matching stirrup socks - Shoes, batting gloves and undershirts must be team colors - Batter can only wear "armor" on lower leg or to protect an existing injury - Home teams wear white, road teams wear gray uniform or colored jersey - Patches must be embroidered - No patches on caps NBA - Home team wears white or light-colored (gold, powder blue, etc.), road team wears dark-colored uniforms (exception - throwback uniforms) - Shoes must be in team colors - teams limited to four sets - home (one), road (two) and throwback or city NFL - Teams can have additional colored helmets for throwback uniforms - Pants and socks must be contrasting colors- Color rush uniforms eliminated - No team or city name in text on uniform
  8. Not enough contrast, making it too hard to read numbers and lettering on television.
  9. The Reds are never going to come up with anything that looks better than this. Just go back to them and call it a day.
  10. They've adjusted to the designated hitter, interleague play, divisional play, integration, astro turf, night games, etc., so I don't see how a different-colored jersey for a few games a year would be a problem.
  11. The original New York Highlanders wore navy road uniforms in the early 1900's, and I think a navy uniform with white pinstripes (using the same general design) isn't sacrilege. The current road uniforms aren't really the traditional Yankee road look unless you remove the white trim around the lettering & numbers and the trim on the sleeves. If you can move out of the original Yankee Stadium, you should be able to consider other uniform options.
  12. Well, you know what they say about opinions......
