Unused Logos and Uniforms


Recommended Posts

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....

I had an old silver Seahawks jersey but I think it was a Puma one. Shawn Springs was the player.

I know these have already been posted, but here's a good pic of the "original" Jaguars uniforms

Saved! Love those jerseys. Nice to see an actual photo of the stripe/Jaguar instead of a mock-up or a skewed view.

Did they only have numbers on one sleeve?

I know it's hard to believe, but there are indeed uniforms that Oregon rejects:

And yes, it's real. Oregon previewed their 2006-2010 uniforms with this exact prototype number font in the 2005 Civil War:

That looks like the same design that Florida and Virginia Tech had with the one orange sleeve that everyone hated.

Looks like the Saints strongly considered switching to serif numbers (and white numbers at home) in 2000:

But this could be an eBay hoax, but glad they didn't. They look way too much like the Ravens, sans purple.

It isn't a hoax, it was an actual prototype. They used to have a section in the teams HOF inside the Superdome called "The Locker Room" that featured all of the teams previous uniforms that they wore. When I looked around I saw this prototype on the floor and posted on the wall next to it were it's concepts and a write up about the proposed change. Apparently the NFL was toying with the idea of letting teams wear alternate helmets and the Saints proposed a black one similar to their illegal '69 version but with their current logo.

That section in the Superdome has since been closed off for more player portraits and the uniforms relocated to an inclosed glass wall section. I didn't see the prototype amongst the uniforms although it was only about three of them in there. I snapped as many pics as I could at the time, they're crude, but so was my Samsung slide out at the time LOL.

Could we get a font made of those unused (or, if they're a hoax, "unused") Saints uniform numbers (the 1A variety)? They're actually pretty nice and I'd love to have them for concepts and such.

It looks like a font called Seabird that I used on my St Louis Stallions concept if its not the font its pretty close
