  1. I would put Milwaukee in the Pre-WWII era since they had the Packers starting in 1933. The 1939 NFL Championship was even played there.
  2. Are they really the only ones besides the Brewers? I thought the Twins had a pinstriped set.
  3. If they went with the pinstripes full time, I'd hope they'd make those cream to distinguish them from all the other navy pinstriped teams. I really want to like the cream uniform better. I still think it'd have promise if they tweaked it. But I have to admit (begrudgingly) that they looked more like the Brewers to me in the pinstripes.
  4. Looks pretty 80s to me. I'm guessing this team was explicitly replacing the Bullets?
  5. It'd be a shame to see a great name like Snappers go. Just an update to the team's logo package is all they need. Also, how odd is it that Beloit still has a team?
  6. Also, this... They didn't join the AL in 1901, they'd been there since 1890 when the league started as the Western League; including 1900 when it was rechristened to the American League. Anyway, the obvious answer is the original ball in glove.
  7. I'd rather just have them replace that useless pinstripe set with the 1982 fauxbacks and use it like the A's have their kelly green set.
  8. I have a feeling we'll see powder blue road alts next year. I can't say I've heard too many people Make the Michigan complaint about the Brewers (at least not to the extent I heard it re: the Packers throwbacks). But you're 100% correct on powder vs. royal. Love the flag idea too.
  9. I do think that has more to do with it being the blue one more than anything. But my point is that the significance of the Brewers in cream is probably lost on a lot of people who don't live in Milwaukee. I think the Bucks jerseys are the most publicity the Cream City nickname has ever gotten.
  10. Guh..... the cream is the best one! I'd sooner dump the pinstripes and bring back the 1982 fauxback. Interestingly, the Bucks cream gear seems to rival their regular stuff. I suspect it might be due to the Bucks having a significantly more localized fan base that appreciates Milwaukee. Where the Brewers have a largely suburban fanbase for whom they've even downplayed being a Milwaukee team before.
  11. ...that's not a good reason to revive an old identity?
  12. The new look has its flaws, but you're insane if you think it's not an upgrade over the previous set.
  13. There's a reason the baseball team chose to be the Nationals instead.
  14. That's the best road gray the Brewers have worn since Robin Yount's last year. But I must say, it felt odd seeing MILWAUKEE in a block font. I think one of the (very few) things the old set got right is that every uniform had a script. From Robin Yount's chase for 3,000 to the Yeliches, Brauns, and Fielders of the modern era, scripts feel quintessentially Brewers to me. I like the Brewers font. It looks great on merch and should remain part of their brand. But I realize now how much I'd prefer scripts on the actual uniform. I wonder what the 1990 scripts would look like on the modern uniforms. Anyone (SFGiants58?) feel like mocking that up?
  15. I thought both were grammatically correct. Either way, the Maple Leafs show this doesn't have to be an issue.
  16. If there's legit precedent for them being the Edmonton Elks, then let them be the Edmonton Elks and call it a day. I hope they don't botch this by overthinking it.
  17. Not sure if its been noticed yet, but the Brewers have been pairing their navy tops with the solid navy caps. They also seem to be presenting this as their default road uniform. They wore blue on the road about as often as they wore their regular road grays over the past two (playoff) seasons. Perhaps they see this part of their identity now? I must say, the blue top is growing on me. I didn't think I'd be saying that. But the numbers are definitely the best part of this new set.
  18. Edmonton Elks sounds like it could have just as easily been around for 100 years, too.
  19. Good package overall. Honestly, I wouldn't be mad if you got rid of the blue. I always thought it looked awkward with the other colors, but the fact that it amounts to a blue line doesn't really go over well with a good chunk of the fans. Your Miller inspired concept looks good. But I'm not sure I'd consider them to be Milwaukee's most iconic beer. That'd be PBR if anything. I would also argue that Schlitz, Blatz, and now even Lakefront and New Glarus have more local cache. I'd love to see a city concept based on any of those.
  20. This is incredible! Can't think of anything I'd change.
  21. He actually used to take that mask with him from team to team since they stopped making it.
  22. I definitely would have preferred they stuck with that set rather than the god awful stuff they just got rid of. I know its a time most Brewers fans want to forget, but the green set coincides with the years I attended the most games. Kinda makes me wish this green jersey actually existed.
  23. I must say I'm glad the Brewers didn't succumb to mix and match syndrome during the double knit era. All of these look great as fan gear, but holy crap do they look awkward as actual uniforms. Everything looks like it should. I would only suggest that the 1990 unis say Milwaukee instead if it's supposed to be a road alt.
  24. The original Calfornia Angels CA is one of my favorite and (IMO) most underrated cap logos. I love that it can be read as the team's initials or the postal code for California. I feel like they never properly capitalized on that.
