I brought this one up a long time ago, but here are the unused uniforms that the Angels included in a 1995 Style Guide:

Aside from the silly shoulder panels, another difference is a lighter shade of Dark Blue/Navy...more of a Royal initially.

I actually like that. The shoulder stripes recall a jersey that the PCL Angels wore in the '50s:

Get rid of the pinstripes, put a matching "Anaheim" wordmark on the road, and it's a good, distinctive look.

In before someone says that's better than what the Bucs wear now…

Holy mother of god, two absolutely horrific never-used third jerseys that the Penguins rejected in 1994:

They fit right in with the horrendous 3rd jerseys of the mid 90s and even the unused Blues monstrosity.

The logo on the second one almost looks vegas gold.

The penguins and flyers could've really been tacky looking in the mid 90s, at least alternate jersey wise, lol

Nah.

In 1992, Ken Loh was in his final year at Cal State Long Beach, working toward a degree in visual communications. He was intern at the Evenson Design Group in Culver City when the firm was hired by the NFL to design some new team logos.

He had an opportunity most design students only dream about as he went to work designing a new logo for the New England Patriots. Two decades on, you know it well.

Jim Kubus operates a website called PittsburghHockey.net. Like Icethetics, it's a one-man labor of love. And he's amassed quite a riveting history of Steel City hockey.

Very close resemblance in insanity though.

If the one on the right faded into the blue more gradually, I don't think it's much worse than their home jersey from the time.

It seems like the decision to move away from creamsicle was a gradual thing, as a lot of these logos use it to various degrees. I like all of them, no wonder what they settled on was so good when things like these were the prototypes. I really like the retro-styled one with the flag logo.

And those Penguins jerseys...I really love the color combo, but the only NHL design I've seen that's worse than these is the infamous St. Louis Blues' third. The one on the left falls firmly into "decent on paper, horrible in practice" territory.

This Bucs Jersey was sold in stores but the Bucs never wore it in a game. ronde-barber-tampa-bay-buccaneers-black-

It was a fashion jersey, many other teams had them.

Correct, I remember seeing gold Rams, yellow Vikes, Chiefs, & Packers, silver Lions & Raiders, red Titans, etc....

Madden to this day features a yellow Packers jersey that unfortunately was never used. Packers look so great in all yellow, I actually never use the green tops in Madden.
