MLB Rivalry Classics: Lone Star Series-Astros vs. Rangers

Recommended Posts

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 :P

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.)

Never cared for that Astros scheme and not really feeling the Rangers away. The Rangers home however is pretty cool.

Beautiful work! Love the Captain America Rangers set (You even used "Rogers" as the name on back ;)). The big "TX" on the road set is unexpected but really bold and cool.

Looking ahead to future entries, I'm excited to see that you'll be doing the Red Sox vs. Braves.

I have a few ideas for your Brewers/White Sox set...If you don't mind I'll message you my thoughts.

Texas Rangers star logo looks like Captain Americas suit and their outfit looks like a suit

Well, Grandpa always told me the ladies love a well dressed gentleman ;)

I honestly loathed the brick & black scheme when they were wearing it, but I kinda miss having it to kick around. Not enough to want it back, but kind of.

The Captain, the Gambler, same difference :D I honestly wasn't going for a Captain America vibe though, but I may as well go with it. Far as the future, Red Sox-Braves was in my plans the whole time, I'd just forgotten to list it. Far as Sox-Brew, I'm all ears.

Not sure about those Texas uniforms. You had a good idea with the Astros, and it looks good.
