Teams in the WRONG uniform

When the Seahawks wore those jerseys, you had the usual Simpsons memes and vomit emojis, but these many years later and two seasons into Color Rush, this set looks positively understated. It's too bad the Hawks lost that game; the jerseys could have been a neat early-season alt until the Nike resdesign.

When I opened this thread I was expecting (hoping) for examples of teams wearing uniforms that they didn't intend to wear or were not their actual uniforms.  For example I remember a story about the Vikings planning to wear white at home against the Lions but the Lions didn't get the memo so both teams were in white but the Vikings switched to the purple tops and kept the purple pants.  Thus the purple on purple was never their intent making it a "wrong" uniform.  I also thought I heard once about an away football team that ended up having to wear the home team's practice jerseys for some reason.  I could be misremembering that though.

Speaking of which, when did teams start having to inform the league office prior to July 1 regarding the jersey colors they would be sporting for their home games?

I feel like the St. Louis Cardinals wore red at home in the mid 90s but I cannot find a photo.

 

Ive also tried to find a photo because it did happen. I believe they wore them during a Labor Day weekend game in 1999 and 2000.

So I'm not crazy. Well, at least in this regard.

Here's a couple of short-lived NBA unis from the late 70s - early 80s:

The Pistons wore these from '78-81.

And the Cavs wore these from '80 - '83, paired with a horrific metallic gold home uni.

Sorry to go off topic, but I noticed two former Maryland Terps in the picture, Tom McMillen (ATL) and Buck Williams (NJ).

How about the New Jersey Nets' short-lived set from 1981-83? Larry Brown got rid of the ABA-style unis when he took over; after he was fired the team brought them back.

Still off topic . . . 

 

Bill81361 beat me to the punch on this . . . except I was going to refer to the future Congressman as ". . . the prematurely grey Tom McMillen."  He played for the Hawks from 1978-83, so he was no older than 31 in this picture.
