Unusual Home Uniform One-Offs

Wisconsin's mid-'90s very '90s uniform, featuring giant motion Ws on the shoulders, white sleeves, and maybe drop-shadowed numerals. The team got clobbered and the jerseys got mothballed.

 

In 1994, the Cubs couldn't win a game at home for anything, so they tried wearing their blue BP jerseys. Didn't help.

Yes, dropshadowed numbers.

Unpopular opinion?  I like these better then the current ones, with that awful number font.

I'm reaching out to the internet hive mind to see if anyone knows anything about this, and I know it's a long shot.

I'm a fan of a Collegiate Summer Wood Bat team called the Rochester Honkers, who play in Rochester, Minnesota. I recently purchased this Honkers jersey, but I can't find any information on it. If anyone knows anything, or has any ideas besides contacting the team (already tried), I appreciate it. Here's the jersey:

How about the one game when the Edmonton Eskimos were wearing stars on their uniforms?

 

1988 CFL All-Star Game.  The All-Stars playing the defending Grey Cup Champions, the Eskimos.

 

Hard to find pictures of this rare one-off, but we do have the YouTube footage.

Nebraska went all-red against Oklahoma in 1986.  It's not a terrible look, but we lost the game to the Sooners and the fans superstitiously decided that all-reds was a bad look.

Cornhuskers or Clothuskers?

2008 was Lane's final game with the Raiders.  I was there.  He had Janikowski try a 73-yard FG.  That was also the year the team celebrated their 50th season with a patch.

The 2009 game was also against the Chargers and they wore a 50th AFL patch and the white jerseys with silver numbers when Chargers wore Powder Blues.  At that one too.

Seems like the only patch the Raiders had in 2008 was the Gene Upshaw patch.

The Raiders' 50th anniversary patch was used in 2009.

Here is a still shot of the Edmonton jersey from that game...

I was at the game when Wisconsin got clobbered in those uniforms...which I viewed as a cross between the Cowboys (who had big stars on the shoulders on their blue jersey) and the Niners (their drop-shadows). They sold replicas.  I wish I'd purchased one.

 

I love when that uniform is brought up...those same three graphics are always posted.  There's not much else out there.

More of a league wide one-off, but in 1989 the CFL experimented with WAH for a number of weeks during the regular season.

Here’s a clip of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers wearing their white jerseys at home, for the only time ever outside of exhibition games. 

 

I do remember the Roughriders wearing white at home in 1989.  Riders did it a few times in 1989.

This is weird on so many levels.

Mississippi State did WAH a couple of times between 2006-09. 2006 vs South Carolina & Auburn, and both 2007 and 2009 vs LSU.

In 1998 and 2000, Spurrier had Florida go WAH vs LSU--maybe to get back at the Bayou Bengals a few years earlier for egging on the NCAA to let them wear white in Tiger Stadium.

Veryyyy unusual uniform for Florida (not positive they only wore them for one game, but I believe so)

Also this shtick from Nike back in like 2005.  Forgot who else did this too.

That jersey is definitely from the NWL's infancy.  But I can't give a much better estimate of a specific year than 90s or early-mid 2000s.

You best bet might be to seek out old programs on eBay and try to date it that way.
