This is, barring insanity, gonna be the only set in the series featuring two teams from the same league. That they play in different divisions despite sharing a state, and thus only play each other a handful of times a year, also helped in my decision. It's kinda like a faux interleague home and home nowadays, now that I think about it. Anyway, here go the Phillies Maroon and powder blue...the cap has the Liberty Bell, and the road blues are basically the 70s roads with a modified version of the current P. The home set, meanwhile, I decided to make it a baseball version of the 70s Eagles, which is my reason for the extra wide pants stripe. And now the Pirates The home whites took inspiration from three different decades, even if it only looks like two. In 1913 and '14, the Pirates' jerseys had a P on either side of the uppermost button, something that hadn't been used before and hasn't been seen since...In 1940 and '41, the Bucs, rather than use Pirates, Pittsburgh, or P on their fronts, featured a pirate on the left chest...and from 1977 to 1979, another rare bird made its lone appearance on a big league uniform when the Pirates introduced two-colored pinstripes. Combine all that, and you have this set's home whites, though instead of the 40s/80s-early 90s pirate, I decided to go with the 70s smiling pirate. The roads are gold vests with black pants, and the vests use pillbox stripes across the chest, over which I placed the 90s Pittsburgh script. Of course, both caps are a modified version of the 70s pillbox caps.
