Nice!

 

For some reason, the Stars' pants looked lighter than the gold on the helmet. Was that intentional?

I thought so too, to differentiate themselves from the Stallions a little. The Stars' pants had more of a Mustard Gold tinge to them and the helmet was  darker Mustard Gold.

Most likely was due to the fact that their specified gold is a Pantone Metallic color which doesn't usually translate well to flat fabrics, and I'm strictly using the Pantone specs in making these since otherwise there would be too much guesswork.

 

 

Anyway, here's Pittsburgh --

Hard to imagine a Pittsburgh team wearing anything besides black and yellow... let alone purple and orange...

From what I can tell, the team used 2 different helmet decals, I'm not 100% sure on when each was used.

If anyone listens to podcasts, "Business Wars" just started a 6 part series on the USFL v the NFL, its a decent listen.

These WFL unis are dead sexy.

 

But I have to correct you on one thing. The Charlotte Stars played only one game, and they wore their gold jerseys, according to a photo I found:

They were renamed after that game, but the only alteration was once again to their helmet. They sported a simple white "C" for the rest of the season, until rebranding with the gold helmet, etc., the next year.

Keep going though! It's great!

Added color to the description of the "C"

Also, on the Charlotte Stars, the NY was taken off the logo and the C was actually a trimmed Chicago Bears decal.

Back to work with the Oakland Invaders!

 

 

I've had a few people reach out to me about this project (and some others in the past) and offered to compensate me in order to get these out more frequently and I've finally decided to create a Patreon.  I'll still be posting everything here regardless of if I get any patrons, but I wanted to add in some extra perks for supporters.  Don't feel obligated to sign up, I just wanted to toss it out there!

Loving this, so don't want to be a jerk.

Note that the Stallions had a white outline to the pant stripe here. Not sure which year this was though (not the first, going by the Invaders uni).

 

Also, the Maulers started out the season with that logo, and about halfway through, added white outlines around just about every logo element, so it could be seen better.
