There’s only one problem with that set, and it’s the NOBs. They’re ginormous.

Is that sort of logo application accurate to that era? It sort of looks like the bottom is glued on with raised lettering. Sort of a cheap 3d effect. Looking at 1969 photos, the entire logo should be stitched on in regular 2d fashion. I guess the 3d adds a bit of new flair.

Yes it’s chain stitch embroidering which was common for the time. Only a few teams still use it like the cardinals and black hawks. And maybe a few others.

Cole Hamels is wearing the same "DPM" patch the Phils players have been wearing throughout the season to honor former chairman David Montgomery

Cole Hamels says he didn't get permission to wear David Montgomery's initials on a patch on his uniform: "I'll take the fine. I don't care. David meant a lot to me." #Cubs #Phillies

For a while I was of the mind that the Phillies didn't need to go back to maroon/powder blue. But the more they wear them the more I want it to happen. Bryce really owns that look

Indeed.  Both teams in road uniforms.  It looked like a Hall of Fame Game.

Cubs in powder blue pinstripes was unique, just squash the stripes and bump the red. Powder blue/royal/white would be nice

I'll always have a soft spot for the California Angels. The Brewers weren't in RBI Baseball, so they became my go-to team.

Four ways the Angels ruin throwback night/weekend:

 

1. Red batting helmets...jfc Arte, spend $2,000 and buy navy helmets.

2. It’s a 70s look but the batterman is on the hats...this is a team choice, as plenty of pre-90s TBTC hats don’t have the batterman. 

3. Pay a few bucks so the visiting team has throwbacks, too. 

4. The last few years have been the same 70s uniforms. Mix it up, Arte..wear 60s, late 80s, 90s, etc. The TBTC uniforms worn in the 50th anniversary season were great. 

 

The Angels could use a Friday navy hat with red brim as an alt look.

I thought the Little League Classic this year was only between the Cubs and Pirates but Lids has several colorful caps up as 2019 Little League Classic caps...

Anyone have an explanation for this? If these exist then it makes the black and white players weekend stuff even more upsetting.

I wouldn't mind the 90's winged Angels unis for a throwback.
