Oh, my.

Bonus points for Devean George joining the Derek Fisher club as Lakers who look terrible in Warriors jerseys.

So I was looking up Muggsy Bogues' career stats on Basketball Reference yesterday and I recall when he was traded to the Warriors 2 games into the 1997-98 season. That's the year the Hornets changed their set to the Bobby Phills/David Wesley era jerseys. Muggsy did play his first 2 games of the season in those Hornets uniforms, but I haven't been able to dig up photos or video just yet. Wanted to share that as a "right team/wrong uniform" example.

 

Edit: I looked up his stats for those games and he only played a combined 16 minutes in those uniforms. If he did play during the preseason, it would've been in their previous sets.

Off-topic, but Sikma could've been a stunt double for Lurch on The Addams Family.

Digging way back on these...

That's Falcons great Steve Bartkowski in the early Falcons set. He's more associated with this set:

When you think of Joe Theismann, you associate him with the white-on-burgundy look of the Redskins, and not with yellow pants as pictured here.

Marc-Andre Fleury and Chris Kunitz in the new Penguins road uniforms that debuted this year. This is will most likely be their last season with the team.

Shaun Alexander in the classic Seahawks getup. Spent his first two seasons in those uniforms.

A rare shot of Bengals legend Anthony Munoz sporting the Cleveland Browns-esque Bengals uniforms. He only wore it in his rookie season.

You've seen Drew Bledsoe in the current Pats getup- here he is in his rookie year, in the first-generation Flying Elvis look. He is more associated with the 'huge shoulder logo' era of that team.

A bit speculative perhaps, but here's a photo of Padres first-round draft pick McKenzie Gore, who signed Saturday and then threw out the ceremonial first pitch wearing the current Padres jersey. I'll put this here, because you just know they'll have a different uniform by the time he makes the majors.

I have always loved those USC numbers, would love to see a team like the Titans bring them back to the NFL

The following years jerseys were soooo much better (the ones with white numbers in the same style - pre giant shoulder Elvis version). 

 

Single color white tv numbers looked like a cheap afterthought.

But I could see Nike doing that for the Patriots. We all know Nike loves to mismatch TV numbers with numbers on the front and back (Seahawks, Jaguars).

They just take away unnecessary outlines and patterns away that don't show up well regardless on such small applications. They don't make them completely different colors

Well, neither did the 1993 Patriots.

Sorta teetered into Bills territory, but the change to the red facemask was a home run

Sorry if this was already posted, but Reggie White wore 91 with the Eagles when he first signed in 1985. He switched to his legendary 92 in 1986.
