  1. The end. When you mourn something special that you'll want to relive someday...when you know you can ride off into the sunset, on your own terms, with no regrets...when you pour one...when one book closes for good, and another opens its blank pages. Who knows, maybe I'll look back and think this book was so good, I might wanna crack it open again. We're here, and so are the Dodgers... Dem Bums wore pinstripes off and on before the advent of the script...couldn't think of a cap so I just used the iconic one. The Giants roam the Polo Grounds one more time... The home set utilizes the blank fronts that were common before the 30s, while the all black roads are a tribute to early Giants manager John McGraw, who liked to put his nine in all black for World Series trips. And the damn Yankees... Pinstripe-free whites, a la the early 1910s, and pinstriped roads with a Yankees script a la their classic dugout jackets. And with that, I'm out of the park for now...
  2. Once upon a time, the Hub City was home of the Red Stockings Beaneaters Doves Pilgrims Rustlers Braves Bees Braves. Both uniforms in the set are somewhat loosely based on the uniforms worn by 1914's Miracle Braves, though instead of the block B and completely red chief on the sleeve of the originals, I used the B from the Braves script and the more colorful Indian of the 40s. Also a B on each cap (the originals were logo-free), with the home cap's B being white trimmed in red to separate itself at least somewhat from the Red Sox. Yes, the blue-gray with red pinstripes actually happened. And was worn for more than one season. Mindblowing, I know. Up the road from Third Base to Huntington, they sang another victory song... The grays are a loose nod to the Huntington Avenue era, when there was a BA (the A being for American League) on the chest. The whites, meanwhile, are a nod to the first Red Sox uniform from 1908. Hey, what can I say, so I've posted a similar jersey before...why mess with a winning formula? Saturday will see the release of the NYC trio.
  3. The wait is over. Rivalry Classics resumes with a city I have something of a conceptual history with, of course I speak of the home of Rocky, stomping grounds of some odd green creature, the land of rough hockey and football players released for borderline inexplicable reasons. Before all of those, though, it was the home of one Connie Mack and his Philadelphia Athletics... The A's tended to have a pretty consistent look for the bulk of their run in Philly, usually donning a blackletter A on the left chest, with royal blue as their main color. The now-familiar Athletics script, indeed, didn't make its first appearance until the team's Philly swan song. The club's other enduring symbol, the white elephant, was famously adopted in defiance of derisive barbs from Mack's friend and rival John McGraw, and though the A's never wore a shirt pocket like the Browns and a few other teams did, I decided to go in that direction for the whites (if you want a straight reporduction, Dressed to the Nines knida already exists ). The road set is something of a peek to the future (I decided to push the time frame up from the 40s to the early 50s), as the A's would wear vests in Kansas City and Oakland, with the past in there for good measure, as they'd occasionally worn pinstripes off and on. When Boston and St. Louis went from having teams in each league to becoming one-team towns, the less-successful of the two had been the ones to ultimately bolt for greener pastures. In Philadelphia, however, it was the chronically underachieving Phillies who stayed in town, and the A's' issues had as much to do with this as the Phils' newfound success. In any event, here go the Phillies... A good amount of the Phillies' sartorial history has seen them with a P on the chest, so here it goes with the Whiz Kids P. The shortened city name, PHILA, is far more associated with the Sixers, but the Phillies wore Phila grays early in the 1900s. Decided to have a collar on the grays for good measure. I'd considered reviving the old William Penn logo as a sleeve patch, before deciding I hadn't given myself enough time to put forth the necessary effort. I'll let you know one thing: the two remaining sets are done. I simply plan to wait a few days before releasing Boston, and then a bit after that the NYC Three-way.
  4. It took me a while to figure out what to do with the Brewers, but ultimately, I give you the Brewers vs. the White Sox, as only I will. Honestly, basing things on the 80s Brewers is somewhat passe. Luckily, Gothamite's involved with the Borchert Field blog, which is about the old American Association Brewers, upon which both uniforms here are based. The Brews' traditional look for most of their existence was a block M at home, and either the same M or MILWAUKEE on the road, only donning tops that read "Brewers" for the first time in the early 40s (as opposed to the modern Brewers, who've never worn anything but BREWERS on their home whites), and the particular uniform I based the home off of had distinctively thick blue piping paired with a red M (which I sort of invoke with the gold M). The all navy road is loosely based on a one-season road set worn in the early 40s that'd been introduced by one Bill Veeck (though that jersey read Brewers, not Milwaukee). The main liberty I took here was the use of the Barrel Man as a sleeve patch, despite the fact that neither the Brews nor the Brew Crew* were big on patches until relatively recently. *Kinda like how the PCL and ML Angels are distinguished from each other by their pet names (Seraphs and Halos, respectively) so too are the AA and ML Brewers (Brews and Brew Crew, respectively) I got more suggestions for the Sox than I knew what to do with (not naming name ). Not a part of the suggestion box was the use of the flying sock on the home set's cap. The silver script and numbers, however, were among the suggestions (and I decided to use silver pinstripes for the hell of it). As were the shorts that I was gonna do anyway. The road is an 80s composite, with the Batterman on the cap and the SOX lettering from the beach blanket jerseys in navy with red trim, a nod to the more sedate late 80s set (with its quirk, the pants number, represented here as well). The Remaining List (no particular order): Canada (Blue Jays vs Expos-90s) Texas (Astros vs Rangers-2000s) St. Louis (Cardinals vs Browns-40s) Philly (Phillies vs A's-30s or 40s) NYC (Dodgers vs Giants vs Yankees-mid 50s) Beantown (Red Sox vs Braves-late 1940s) I-94 (Brewers vs White Sox-1997)
  5. Once upon a time, St. Louis had two MLB teams. The problem was, though, that big league baseball was growing to the point that there was only room in town for one team. I take you back to the mid 40s, when a man with one leg and a mind filled to the brim with ideas ahead of their time was trying to ensure the last team standing under the Arch would be wearing brown. His vision of the club ruling a city's baseball scene would come to pass, just not how he envisioned it, exactly. Browns On the tan roads, it didn't show up as well as I hoped it would, but I used double pinstripes. On the home whites, I used a brown-trimmed front pocket, similar to one found on a 1900s uniform. The older styled SL distinguishes the cap from the STL nowadays linked to the Cards. I'd originally had the Browns shield on the left sleeve, but decided to replace it with the Health patch, given the time period I was going for. Cardinals Like my more modern effort a few months back, figured I'd aim for something one could imagine the 1940s Cards wearing for a special occasion. The Remaining List: Canada (Blue Jays vs Expos-90s) Texas (Astros vs Rangers-2000s) St. Louis (Cardinals vs Browns-40s) Philly (Phillies vs A's-30s or 40s) NYC (Dodgers vs Giants vs Yankees-mid 50s) Beantown (Red Sox vs Braves-late 1940s) I-94 (Brewers vs White Sox-1997)
  6. One team has had one of baseball's most colorful uniform histories. The other is currently under the impression that it is a college team. I give you the Lone Star Series, 20 minutes into the past First, the Astros This is basically the 70s & 80s Rainbow Guts in black, brick and sand for the home set, and the 80s-93 Rainbow sleeves for the road. Even decided to echo their use of the lightest gray ever, and later cream, for the roads by using a lighter sand as the base color. Now, the Rangers Honestly, most of the good ideas I've ever had for the Rangers, I've already used. So here, I break out the 90s star and slap it on the left chest like a badge. The grays, I thought about what to do until I chose a decidedly 1900s direction: a big TX, one letter on each side of the chest. And not much else. Speak on it. Might as well make a list so you know what to expect...so Canada (Blue Jays vs Expos-90s) Texas (Astros vs Rangers-2000s) St. Louis (Cardinals vs Browns-40s) Philly (Phillies vs A's-30s or 40s) NYC (Dodgers vs Giants vs Yankees-50s) Beantown (Red Sox vs Braves-30s or 40s) I-94 (Brewers vs White Sox-70s...or 80s..or early 90s. Not sure yet.)
  7. Well, it's mid-June, and I'm a man of my word, so the Rivalry Series' spinoff begins. And as I'd told yall I'd do, I kick things off with the two Canadian teams, going back to 94 to do so. Les Amours...Les Expos...Les Miserables... I saw a variant of the pinwheel cap with powder blue front panels at Lids.com a while back, and had thought about using a similar cap in a concept for a while, so I made the road cap the way it is. Ultimately, the double sleeve piping is a small nod to the Royals. The only other quirk I could think of including was the contrasting placket with four fleurs-de-lis dotting it. Blue Jays Taking coco's suggestion, I based this set off the old baseball Maple Leafs (before anyone nitpicks about it, yes, I know of the current baseball Leafs), and decided to try incorporating the Jays' trademark split into both the script and the T-bars. This will either be a stroke of genius or proof of why you rarely see split scripts. Something I came across in my research before ultimately leaving to the side for now was a sleeve patch the Leafs used, of an old time ballplayer with a mustache that makes Rollie Fingers' handlebars look like stubble, and I figure if I take a normal stab at the Jays, I might find a way to at least evoke that stache.
