Colors that have gone away that really need to come back

Recommended Posts

Powder Blue, it's another one of those "trendy" colors that burst onto the scene, was quickly overused, and then disappeared. It's a really nice shade of blue that could use some more love.

I personally wasn't fond of all the unis in that color but I LOVED the old Phillies jerseys.

I love how the Bucks are bringing it back!

Kelly Green or what the original poster described as simply "green" had been entirely absent from the NHL for a decade. Its last trace was eradicated when the Hartford Whalers became the Carolina Hurricanes in 1997, and it didn't return until the 07 Canucks re brand. Thankfully the Dallas Stars have brought it back to primary status where it belongs.

I'll echo maroon. Only the Avs and Rapids really come close but there is room for more utility, even as secondary or trim colors.

I miss Sharks & Marlins teal. I don't miss the actual teal for teal's sake era.

San Jose should burn its black unis. 3x NHL teams in Cali... all sporting black... terrific.

Setting aside DC's NFL team's burgundy, I can't think of a single major pro sports team (unless you consider the MLS as "major") that uses maroon, so...maroon. (Or garnet if you prefer.)

Man, that's crazy. Maroon and burgundy used to be everywhere. They're still overrepresented in college sports, though, so that gives it some balance.

(Although: I'm pretty sure the Diamondbacks' main color is textbook maroon.)

Also, as other posters have noted, Colorado Avalanche and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Teal and Buccaneers Creamsicle Orange would be my picks.

The Bucs still use creamsicle.

And has anyone else, ever?

Forthed. There can never be too much teal in pro sports.

No sorry I can't agree with that. Teal is gorgeous but alsospecial because it isn't overused. too much teal would be a problem.

Honestly - and I love teal - but I think that things are pretty good for the color, all things considered. With the new Hornets bringing back the color, I can only think of two teams that should seriously think about bringing it back, the Ducks and Diamondbacks. All the other teams who used it have either kept it (Sharks, Jaguars, etc), upgraded to a better color scheme (Marlins, maybe Diamondbacks), or - if they were using it as a trend and nothing else - dropped it (Pistons). That's pretty good for a 90's fad.

Royals Blue and Yellow. San Jose State uses it and I believe McNeese State uses it, not many else though.

I think you're forgetting the Golden State Warriors.

Another is a *bright* metallic gold. The Saints used to have this, as did the Colorado Buffaloes. UCLA football still wears it, but many of the others have either darkened or dulled (or both) their shades of gold, for whatever reason.

Thank God for the Vikings

The 90s proved otherwise. The colour really lost its uniqueness when everyone started using it.
