In my eyes these were some of the worst jerseys the Bruins ever had, and it doesn't help that the Winnie the Pooh jerseys coincided with them

Saskatchewan Roughriders S Glen Suitor.

 

Entire CFL career with the Riders (1984-1994).  Only his rookie season spent wearing this uniform before the Roughriders made the uniform redesign happen in 1985.

Ottawa Rough Riders C/OL Irv Daymond.  This one is a two-fer.

 

Whole CFL career with the Eastern Riders (1986-1995).

 

Most of those seasons wearing the longstanding and classic Rough Riders look.  Black and red with the single "R" as the helmet logo.  Then the Riders went through those ownership changes during those later hard financial years.  Each owner making head-scratching decisions about new uniforms.

 

So we saw the long-time Rough Rider Daymond wear the "double flaming Rs" in 1992 and 1993:

 

Irv-Daymond-Ottawa-Rough-Riders-1992-10.

 

Then the radically different uniform in 1994 and 1995.  A uniform which was really the "wrong uniform" for whole Rough Riders organization:

This one is kind of a mix of this thread and “Rare team matchup”, as the uniform Scottie Pippen is wearing is perfectly fine- it’s just jarring to see him in a Bulls uniform playing against the light blue Nuggets (and Carmelo Anthony)

BC Lions LB Carl Kidd.

 

His entire CFL career with the Lions.  7 seasons.  The last 2 in the white/orange/white combination:

Does not look right compared to the Lions uniform he wore during the first 5 seasons:

Carlton Fisk in button-up Red Sox uni. I associate him with the 70s pullovers, naturally.

I didn't remember seeing Vinatieri  from the mid 90s.

Of course, the best play of Vinatieri's entire career happened in those unis...

Didn't scroll through the entire thing, but for exactly one year, a much leaner Giannis wore the Christmas unis.

He wore that color scheme for two years, also wearing the one year flat script uniform

Mets vet Dwight Gooden comes clean in 'Doc' | Newsday

 

Dwight Gooden was the last remaining link from the 1986 World Series champion Mets to leave the team, and he played there long enough to play in their "swoosh-tail" uniform set of 1993/94.

This is probably in here already. Randy Moss left the Vikings after 2004, they changed to these awful uniforms in 2006, but he came back for a 4 game stint in 2010, which I don't even remember.
