My favorite example of this is the 2001 Diamondbacks.

Nothing they try is going to improve on that set. Hopefully one day they go back to it.

 

They got rid of the road uniform in the first Curt Schilling picture after the 2000 season and replaced it with the one in the last picture.  But I agree, that was the best the Diamondbacks ever looked.

Even the alt that year looked fab:

I agree except for the alternate Jersey. ?

I think this basic design was much improved by darkening both the burgundy and gold. The color balance is much better.

Did they actually darken the colors or is it just the lighting in the picture?  If they did then I agree.

I think they actually did, whether it was an "official" change or not. To give another example, compare Joe Theismann in the dark jersey to Kirk Cousins last year:

Browsing through Google image search, there are a few shots where the early-80s jersey looks darker, and a few where the current jersey looks lighter, but on average, the burgundy and gold on the current jersey are both noticeably darker.

Yeah, but look at those two photos.  One is bright sunlight, the other an overcast day.  One was taken on film, the other surely digital.  The jersey materials were also changed in between, from shiny to matte.

 

I don't doubt that they did change the color, but those pictures aren't evidence either way.

Went to the best source, our old friend Donovan/Colorwerx's site.

 

They did change over time, three different burgundys since 1972, and it is darker now:

The Edmonton Eskimos were a 5-year Grey Cup dynasty with this timeless classic.

1970's Cincinnati Reds. Doesn't hurt that the Big Red Machine was one of the greatest teams of all time and won back to back World Series. A classic look that they should adapt to the modern button down jerseys and bring back.

Couldn't disagree more if you said 2+2=5.  The number font is childish at best, and I don't think the uniform has stood the test of time at all - especially the road uniform.
