    So they dug those out of storage huh?


    Actually, I kinda like that. It's a creative gesture, and I'm assuming they probably don't have retail versions, so it avoids that capitalizing on tragedy aspect of it. 


    Also, these are SWEET caps. The Rays really should return to the gradient set.


    1. I actually would buy a retail one in a heartbeat if 100% of the funds raised went into helping the families of the victims. Perhaps setting up a charity fund of some sort. 


    2. I'm glad I'm not the only one who liked the gradient uniforms. I know they're hated by many, but I love how unique they were. They certainly had more character than the current uniforms do.

    The Clippers at least used to have a great identity




    Everyone forgot that the Clippers are named after clipper ships because they spent 30 years trying to be the Lakers. 

    That was a great color scheme, but I honestly don't care for that particular logo. I get that the designer was trying to avoid creating something that looks busy and complicated, but to me the shapes look too basic. Without knowing what a Clipper ship is, most people would just see a zig-zag shape and a circle. 

  3. We all know that Mitchell & Ness is the top name in throwback jerseys. You can find jerseys of pretty much every team from every era. But there are some jerseys that are now considered "old school", along with old jerseys they just haven't made yet (to my knowledge). My question is, what would you gladly buy from them which they have not yet made?


    As for my hometown picks:


    Dave Bing and Bob Lanier Detroit Pistons jerseys.


    1935  Charlie Gehringer and/or Hank Greenberg away Detroit Tigers jersey.


    1945 Hank Greenberg away Tigers jersey.


    1957 Bobby Layne and/or Doak Walker Lions jerseys.


    Other picks:


    Eddie Gaedel St. Louis Browns jersey (because of the humorous 1/8 on the back)


    Ken Griffey Jr. late 80s/early 90s Mariners jersey (perfect time to make them, and I'm sure they'd have no problem selling them this summer)


    Griffey Jr. Turn Ahead The Clock jersey (sure, they were ugly, but wouldn't it be hilarious to have a jersey style that was once considered futuristic now be made as a throwback jersey?)


    Anaheim Mighty Ducks “Wild Wing” alt jerseys (I don't care what anyone else thinks about those jerseys; I'd gladly buy a Guy Hebert or Teemu Selanne version)


    1998 Tony Gwynn San Diego Padres jersey (I'd be fine with either home or away style, I love the color scheme)

     They're no longer any better than the minor league shenanigans.

    And minor league teams can actually pull it off, because their logos are so silly that nobody takes them as seriously as logos that have been around for generations.


    To do something as stupid as this isn't spitting on the history of some of Major League Baseball's most iconic franchises, it's taking a :censored: on them and making so effort to clean up the mess.

    On a random side-note, while I was trying to find a good picture of my Mattingly shirt, I came across this:




    It's being sold as a "vintage heater jersey", and they're available for each team.  I think this may be before my memories of baseball.  What the crap is a "heater jersey"?




    Those look like awful off brand stuff you find in the clothes section of Meijer/Walmart.

  6. The Padres are adding a color they're calling "battleship grey." I doubt they're getting away from the "Team of the Military" idea.

    they might just be getting really into boardgames

    If so, they'll soon be announcing they've signed Milton Bradley.

  7. Robert Parish, a.k.a The Chief, who played a grand total of two seasons with the Hornets. I was tempted to post a picture of him in a Bulls uniform, but he actually won a championship while playing for Chicago during the '96-'97 season.


    He actually played for Charlotte in this game:

    Not really a wrong uniform, but one of the earlier games with the home team in alts with the road team in white.

    Magic at Hornets 1994.
