Who will be the first team to use Vantablack?

It's no anthracite or wolf gray, but Vantablack will surely be all the rage in uniform design soon:

"The Arizona Cardinals' new Nike Vantablack football uniforms increase performance by 0.05% because they will become virtually invisible to both opponents and teammates. The blacker than black design is inspired by the shadows of the historic arches in Busch Stadium II, where the Cardinals played when St. Louis was their home. The red remains unchanged, but also unused. Because otherwise you could see them. And that would defeat the purpose of Vantablack."

This looks interesting. It wouldn't surprise me at all if modern-like teams start this up.

 

Yeah how dare they try to make money.

I thought I remember seeing that vantablack couldn't be used for clothing because it attracts an unsafe amount of heat.

Yeah, it would be really hot for the players unless it is used for hockey jerseys

Yeah how dare me for still finding it tedious.

 

That tedium is quite literally the price you pay for the content you admittedly want to read.  And it seems an exceedingly small price at that.

Heat issues aside, Vantablack also has this neat quality where it's like asbestos, and touching it causes dangerously toxic particles to fly off and get inhaled.

 

So yeah, maybe don't use it.
