Why does this set look so good in this picture.  Without the pedestal, this would have been a solid upgrade.  I miss the white 'C' with the thin black outline.

Not necessarily right uniform as that's Buffalo...but because of when I played the classic EA Games during the mid to late 90's I sort of associate him with the Flames. He wore the classic Calgary uniforms during the 1995 pre season before they went to their new duds when the 48 game season rolled around.

Kevin Lowe when the Oilers darkened things up in 1996.

 

And while we're at it, here's Marty McSorley donning the same dark uniforms in 1999 (and look at that Jofas hahaha):

Johnny Bench in 1966 or 1967 Spring Training, not only wearing the wrong uniform style (1961-6/7 Spring Training) but also the wrong number (53).

 

On a side note, I enjoy the number font on those uniforms. At least one team in the majors should use this thin, wide varsity block with a Packers-style "5" and minimal serifs.

The ugly Eagles jersey (tucked in, nonetheless) with khaki pants is a bad look, Randall.

Here's one for consideration...

 

Bill Walton: Only played 4 years for the Blazers. Brought the team it's only NBA title, so is that his "right" team? For the sake of argument, let's say yes.

 

His rookie season, 1974/75 was the last season for this style with the tail under "blazers". The next season, 1975/76, they switched to the vertical style which became famous the following season when they won the championship. The season after that, 1977/78, saw the introduction to the now iconic "sash" style uniforms, which Walton only wore that year before injuries and a trade sent him packing.

 

Interesting twist: when the Blazers retired his number prior to I believe their 1989/90 season opener, they presented him a framed version of the "sash" style jersey. Was it simply because that's what they had available to customize? That's what I suspect...

 

So, which one is his "wrong" jersey?

Neely's final year was Bostons first in these sets. Not awful but I definitely preferred the cleaner 1975-1995 uniforms

The 1975-1995 set is the best they've ever worn. Also, that's the worst name I've ever heard.

It's a little better than "Sea Bass"...

His rookie jersey, mainly because the vertical is his right uniform as a Blazer (because of the championship) and the sash -- albeit worn one season by him -- is the franchise's most recognizable jersey.

 

And, I guess you could make the argument the sash is the jersey he won a MVP in.

FWIW I associate Walton with the championship team look of the Blazers especially this one with the vertical name...

The framed one he's holding reminds me more of the Clyde Drexler/TerryPorter 1980's era Blazers.

Omar Vizquel in the "Cleveland Stadium" era jerseys. The Tribe switched to script for the 1994 season -- the first at Jacobs Field -- but used the 1993 set in spring photo shoots. Little O was acquired over the winter, so likely never played a game in these. All spring action shots I've found are in the blue BP tops.

I still have a Russell Athletic road replica of those, including the Anaheim sleeve patch.  I also have the periwinkle sleeved alternate.  Two of my better thrift store finds back in the day.

I've got the home pins with the patch (patch added later). I also had the dreaded periwinkle alt at one point. To this day I still wear my "Winged Angels" shirt and 5950.

 

The road pins are still my biggest whale. I can't find it anywhere!
