Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

Carlos Correa rookie (pre-rookie?) card. He was drafted June 2013, a few months before the Astros switched to their current set. The small window was apparently large enough for a few photo ops in the pinstripe set.

That might actually be a photo shopped uniform.

That's actually a really nice alt. How did it only last one season? 

 

Also, I got one.... Sean Burke might be best considered a journeyman goalie, but he played the longest for the Whalers. Here's him in the pre-silver era set:

Technically, two seasons: 2000 and 2001. Berkman played his Astro prime when they only had one alternate jersey (the red one), hence the rarity.

 

In 2000 and 2001, the Astros had a boatload of different uniforms

Lance Berkman briefly wore this black uniform that the Astros had in 2000-2001 as a rare alternate

That's a rare alt, but not necesarily a wrong uni.

Probably just me, but Mark Brunnell with the revo Helmet, black pants, black jersey is weird. I think this particular instance happened only once against Pittsburgh in 2002.

Dwight Gooden, aka "Dr. K" was the last remaining player on the 1986 Mets team; this is him in the 1993-94 "Dodger script"-style Mets uniform (he's more associated with the 'racing stripe' style Mets uniforms).

1993-94 during a really dark embarrassing time. It's probably the worst non-alternative uniform the Mets have ever worn.

(Apologies in advance for threadjacking this...)

I dunno, it's not a bad-looking script on the '93-'94 road grays there, along with the button front and toned-down piping...I like it better than the late '80s pullovers.

2 examples of this with the Texas Rangers:

Josh Hamilton's first year in Texas (2008) was the last year they wore the home RANGERS jerseys. The following year, their home unis were overhauled to the TEXAS look they still have today

Rafael Palmeiro wore that uniform in only one of his 10 seasons with the Rangers (1999).

Willie-McCovey-1980-San-Francisco-Giants

Willie "Stretch" McCovey (the namesake of AT&T Park's "McCovey Cove") finished his career from 1977-80, where it all began (and his 'right' team), the San Francisco Giants, albeit in their double-knit pullover jersey/beltless trouser combo.

That's Howard Cross, who spent his whole career with the New York Giants, and the 'retro-modern' togs of the Giants is his 'wrong' uniform (he is more synonymous with the LT/Simms era uniforms).

The "Russian Rocket", Pavel Bure, in the orca Canucks jerseys. He's much more synonymous with the flying skate uniforms.

Frank Robinson wearing the head of Mr. Red, and the pre-1956 uniforms (in 1956 Spring Training, I presume):
