  1. You have the Mets, Jets, and Nets in the greater New York area. Pretty sure the Aeros and Astros could work just fine.
  2. Browns need to go with Orange pants this week, have yet to wear them and would be a nice contrast on the silver/honolulu blue.
  3. Interesting about the number font, will have to look at that when I get the jersey back. Will take pics and post to compare.
  4. I thought it had something to do with being a smaller school and not being able to get/afford all new jerseys from Nike or Nike having a supply issue for their style. I do remember hearing about it though. May be something to ask Uni Watch, I am sure someone out there knows the answer.
  5. Did any of your "resources" get in serious trouble for opening the box and "distributing" the merchandise? I have a few buddies that work at Dick's and said how tight security is on those boxes and that they can not open anything until the final game is over.
  6. Cool to see my local sports guy and friend quoted on here. Was coming in here to see if this had been mentioned yet.
  7. I guess it depends on what you consider an authentic when it comes to NFL jerseys now a days. Back in 2004 I interned with the Oakland Raiders. While there I purchased an "authentic" Jerry Rice jersey, to have him autograph, and a game worn authentic jersey of a skill player to go along with all of my game worn jerseys of teams I have worked for (jersey is framed at my parents so I can't recall his name at the moment). Anyways I am 5'8" and roughly 190lbs and the game worn jersey is so tight on me and extra long that it would be uncomfortable to wear as a jersey out and about, I should have bought a QB's jersey so it laid a little nicer in the frame. Oakland, like I am sure all NFL teams have, have a tailor that comes in and will alter the players jersey to their specifications. So I would say that well over half of the jerseys you see on the field would be terrible authentics to own and wear. So basically to own a NFL authentic jersey you can plan on getting the official lettering/numbering, logos, and fabric but not the on field cut. Next time i am at my parents I will have to get the jersey and take pictures comparing on field authentic vs store bought authentic. Only down side is I think there is some paint on one sleeve because I set it on a table and didn't see that my wife had a can of paint open. Luckily you can't see it in the frame.
  8. My first thought was this helmet of the Portland Breakers, but the colors don't match up. Could easily be a college team that is using the same decal with alt colors. Will look deeper into it.
  9. Sorry to bring this back from the first page, but if you have NFL2K5 it contained a few random/never used NFL jerseys. I am 99% positive this jersey was in the game. It did have the following odd/never used jerseys. 49ers Gold Jersey Rams Gold Jersey Vikings Yellow Jersey Raiders Silver Jersey Cardinals Navy Blue BTW, love this thread! Have thought about stuff like this and thought to myself, did I really see that or was I imagining it?
  10. If you haven't tried it yet, the new customization features in NHL 17 are a dream come true for people on this site. Minus the logo limitations, the options are great. Anyways I have created a EASHL team and I am looking for some identity help. I wanted to go with a traditional name (City_Nickname) but that doesn't fit the online norm, so I went with the Fightin LumberKings, wanted to add the ' to the end of Fightin but the game wouldn't allow it. Yes the name is odd, but if you see some of the names online it fits in perfectly. I am going to use the throwback skating Lumberjack from the Canucks as the main logo and it has an Axe as a secondary logo. Anyways I am struggling with a color scheme and wanted some input from the board. I am thinking something rustic because of the lumberjack logo, but I just can't find anything that sticks. Here are a few choices I have thrown at it, have tried over 5 combos so far. Black, Hunter Green, Orange, White Black, Yellow, Light Blue, White Navy, Columbia Blue, Silver, White Maroon, Columbia Blue, Yellow, White Black, Orange, Columbia Blue I am looking for something unique, any help or inspiration is greatly appreciated!
  11. One of the current uniforms? I'm somewhat shocked that would be available for $28. (And I kinda want one) It was the 2013-2014 season. The Cavs C is on the back not the NBA logo. Minor change in my opinion.
  12. Found an Adidas Swingman Lebron James Cavs jersey at my local TJMaxx for $28 today. Not a true deal, but I thought it was reasonable for a Swingman jersey. First NBA jersey I have bought since the old Champion jersey days.
  13. thr problem is you're comparing digital images on your computer/mobile. theres so many variables that come into play it's the WORST way to compare colors. different cameras, light, and especially JPG compression will alter color in images I understand, that's why I was trying to find pics that were both in the daytime. The pics do give a good idea of how the shades of orange do differ and ColorWerx further explained how the two shades of orange differ. You really have to see them in person, but OSU's helmet is definetly a deeper/brighter shade of orange.
  14. I'm glad you pointed this out - there's a reason for it. The Browns and Bengals BOTH use PANTONE 1655 C for their Orange, but use different CMYK breakdowns. Which in my opinion, is where a lot of the inconsistencies start. Here's what the Browns use (or used, I will assume): My theory is that they've been matching to this particular color, regardless of how 1655 C actually looks when printing with Pantone inks. The two are much different. Again proving why you are the "Man of Colors". Makes total sense. Thanks! Just the logo, uniforms are supposed to be later in the spring.
  15. I don't question the Pantone, you have done an AMAZING job! I'm not sure the orange in the helmets accurately reflects the orange in the uniforms. The helmets are equipment and I'm not sure they follow the Pantone colors. Look at the helmets under natural light and you will see a difference. Many teams helmet's can't quite match the color in the uniforms.
