It's been a while since my last concept, so I figure the time was right to roll this duo out. Orioles That I've forgone road grays hasn't been too unusual. That I've junked home whites, though...for starters, the same black pants are worn for both home and road unis. The home jersey mimicks an oriole's torso, with an orange chest and the rest is black. Kinda like the various BP jerseys with the odd paneling and contrasting backs, but simpler and better conceived IMO. Thick sleeve striping is modeled after the 60s Orioles' stirrups, and unusually for the O's, the front uses predominantly white lettering. The all black road set is based on the 1901 Orioles, though I figured I'd replace the O actually worn with a B. The right sleeve is adorned with the classic swinging oriole, and the Lord Baltimore flag (the gold/black portions of the Maryland flag) provides the sublimated torso/sleeve pattern. Nationals If anyone remembers that one time the Red Sox hosted the Cubs, and Boston came out in uniforms that literally only had back numbers, the home uniform here references that same era...the Walter Johnson era, to be more specific. Hybrid of the 1910 Senators (the contrasting placket) and 20s Nats (W's on sleeves and pinstripes) with the current team's red instead of navy, this being more of a tribute uniform than a true throwback. The roadie takes inspiration from the 50s Senators' "3D" home uniforms, though as the curly W doesn't look good with the shadow style that the 50s jersey used, I went with the DC insetad. On each sleeve are three stars above two red stripes, taken from the Washington D.C. flag. As you can see, the numbers got the same treatment as the DC. Far as the near future goes, I am going forward with likely the only intraleague rivalry of the bunch, Pirates-Phillies...as in the Pirates are done, but I haven't really started on the Phils yet. After that, I have a few good Cards-Royals ideas, I wanna flesh those out a bit more.
