I feel you there. I promised myself I wouldn’t get an authentic Dodgers jersey (with my name and number) until they win the championship (looks like I’ll be waiting a long time)...but for almost $500 I’ll just stick with the replicas and purchase patches separately. Looks like I’ll save HUNDREDS of dollars if I go that route.

 

Theres no way in hell an authentic jersey is worth THAT much without a hand written signature from the player. Talk about price gouging.

Since Majestic authentic jerseys were on sale, I went and purchased one and put my own name and number on it. Total price: about $190.50 with tax ($123 for the jersey and $67.50 for the lettering). The original price for the jersey alone was $199.99 so I’m glad I saved SOME money.

 

And I don’t have to worry about that Nike logo lol.

In this video you can see a glimpse of the gold trimmed uniform the Nats presumably would have worn on Opening Day.  It appears to be the white alternate jersey with the cursive Nationals script -- yet with the standard all red home hat.  Personally I would have added it to the standard home white uniform, or the blue alternate since the WS success was in that.  But nonetheless, as a Nats fan it's hard not to be excited to see this :)

Interesting. I think they're going the way of making that script their official home uniform. Maybe they'll make it permanent next year.

 

Either that, or the gold pops more on blue script versus red.

Is there an issue with New Era production? MLB shop/Fanatics.com/Lids are all running out of Authentic Collection hats for almost all teams.

 

I certainly :censored:ing hope so.  Bring production back to Buffalo.

New Era doesn't seem to be interested in bringing production back to Buffalo anytime soon. New Era just laid off over 100 Buffalo area employees this week..

 

No sports could mean huge trouble for the biggest sports hatwear company.

Oh, I don't think they're at all interested in doing it.

 

Still the right thing to do, though.

Oh, that's hideous.  Even for a one-off.

 

Dark/light/dark outlines are always a bad idea.

 

Cap's not bad.  That's the way to do it.

Imagine if they still had the red/blue/gold set from their early days (with the excellent DC logo)...not much change would be needed for something like this.

Don't the Mariners usually get a pass, because the dark green just disappears when it's next to the navy letters?

Washington Nationals Reveal Gold-Trimmed Championship Uniform

July 9, 2020 - 21:01 PM

The red, white, blue… and gold! Players of the Washington Nationals today revealed their special gold-trimmed ring ceremony uniforms, which presumably would have been worn back in the Spring when the team was originally set to receive their 2019 World Series rings. We’re not sure if the team will still

They don’t get a pass from me - that was a huge downgrade.  Bad move.

The easier trick - just lighten the teal! It’s not like Majestic/Nike, Fanatics, and New Era can’t produce a lighter teal.

Yeaaa in a vaccum I don't think that looks good, but I've got my rose colored glasses on the moment so I can't complain too much :)

 

But again, not sure why they chose to do it with an alternate uniform they've never yet worn on the field for a regular season game.  The hat Davey is wearing is what I always pictured they'd wear for championship ring day, but I always pictured it with the standard home white uni which I think would be a major improvement.

I didn’t have a problem with the old color placement, but yes.  A lighter blue bordering navy would look great.

They already have a script on the road uniform, so they might be using these to test the waters for the home whites, as well. Wouldn't shock me, seeing as how they won the WS in the navy script jerseys.

I prefer lighter teal outlined in navy.

I’d also appreciate dumping Fitz Quadrata for a less Roman Serif-y font.
