Yes!! Exactly what I would like to see, just dont mess with the home unis. Too bad I hate the organization ( another topic besides the uniforms, more about how they trade players), but not for this topic!

I assume by "navy hem" you're referring to the placket piping?

 

Let's end the week with America's favorite team, the Houston Astros!

I know on the shoulder rainbow uniforms, the Astros had a navy blue stripe down the side of the jersey and the britches.  Other than that, these look great!  I love this series!!

Good catch! I've gone back to my original post and added the stripes. I also realized I forgot to upload the '89-92 road alt, so that's been added, too.

 

Up next are the Kansas City Royals!

*I decided to design a new Black for Black's Sake style jersey for the Royals mainly because I love the color combo of powder blue and black. I might actually take an old idea I had for a series and fold it into this one and do a new BFBS design for each team going forward. 

 

C&C appreciated!

Literally could not love this more. The vest is out-of-this-world, and the navy with the number on the right breast plate looks great.

The original Calfornia Angels CA is one of my favorite and (IMO) most underrated cap logos.  I love that it can be read as the team's initials or the postal code for California.  I feel like they never properly capitalized on that.

Excellent series! I always wonder how alternate uniforms would had looked like if nearly all teams had them in from the 60s-early 90s. I wonder if you plan to do the 93 expansion teams (Marlins and Rockies). When those teams joined the league, just two other teams wore alternates (Orioles and White Sox each sporting a black alternate jersey) Every other team wore white at home and gray on the road (except the Astros, who wore cream)  By the time the 98 expansion teams (Rays and Diamondbacks) joined the league, alternate jerseys were now in common, with at least half of the league sporting at least one alternate set. I'm assuming that you won't the Rays or Diamondbacks since they each sported several alternate uniforms.

 

Braves - Love the red version of the 72-75 Hank Aaron-era jerseys.  Even the gold 2000s alternate looks interesting.  Very outside-the-box while remaining true the classic Braves look. 

 

Orioles - The black 70s/80s alt jersey looks great.  All of the alternates are what I expected this team to look like.

 

White Sox - The early 60s alternate jerseys with the black/red color scheme are solid.  Also, like your take on the 1982-1986 "Winning Ugly" uniforms. 

 

Red Sox - Just what I would expect the Red Sox to wear had they sported an alternate.  The 63-71 navy road alt and the pullover 72-78 alternate uniforms stand out the most.  What would an road alternate from 1979-1989 would had looked like?

 

Cubs - All the Cubs alternate jerseys you made are incredible!  I wonder what would what an alternate jersey for the Cubs from 82-89 would had looked like since they didn't wear gray or powder blue on the road those years? Maybe a red alternate jersey? (the Rangers from 84-85 actually did that)  Then again, I could see why you chose not to do a red jersey considering who the Cubs' oldest rivals are.

 

Reds - Love the red version of the 72-92 pullover-era jerseys.  Even the black 99-06 jersey looks good.  How about a red version of the 1993-1998 set?  Or a road alternate with "CINCINNATI" script?

 

Indians - The 89-93 alternate uniforms are great, especially the red one.  The red 90s/00s alternate also looks sharp.

 

Tigers - All of the orange jerseys from each era looks sharp even though the Tigers don't have any orange on their home uniforms.  Then again, orange jerseys/gray pants don't mesh very well.  Navy uniforms also look good.

 

Astros - Love the orange version of the 81-88 and 89-93 uniforms.  Navy jerseys also look sharp. (didn't they wear cream on the road and not gray?  They wore an extremely light gray road uniform but changed the shade to cream in 83)  How about a gold version of the 1994-1999 set as they only wore a navy alternate. 

 

Royals - The blue jerseys look like what I excepted.  Very nice looking.  The gold 90s/00s jersey and the 2008-era black/powder blue combo are very creative.

 

Angels - Love the touch of gold on the red and navy 73-88 alternates.  Helps them stand out more from the other navy/red clubs.  What would a red 89-92 jersey look like or even from the 93-96 era uniforms.  The 97-01 red alt and the 2002-current navy jersey look sharp.

 

Can't wait to see how you handle the remaining teams.  The Athletics, for example, seemed to have alternate uniforms every season throughout the 70s and mid-80s. They settled down from the late 80s/early 90s.  Maybe Canada Day versions of 1977-1988 Blue Jays uniforms?  Endless possibilities.

Wow, thanks for the detailed feedback! I will be doing something for the '90s expansion teams, but I will probably post them all together since they will probably all have no more than one or two alts each. I actually do have a few designs planned for the D-Backs but none for Tampa Bay at the moment. I'll also be tackling the teams that no longer exist or relocated (Senators, Pilots and Expos).

My original idea was a navy alt with the dangling sock logo on the chest instead of the "RED SOX" script but I couldn't seem make it work. I'll try to play around with it more.

I did try to make a red Cubs jersey work but decided against it for the exact reason you mentioned. Also, the Reds.

You're right, I totally overlooked the '93-98 Reds. Here they are!

You're right that the Tigers' home uniforms don't wear orange, but I always thought a team called the Tigers should wear an orange jersey, and as a rule of thumb bright colored jerseys tend to pair better with plain white or white pinstriped home pants.

This is another one I forgot about. Here you go! I've also added it and the '93-98 Reds one to their respective original posts.

My A's post will also include an alt or two for their time in Kansas City. And yes, a '70s-80s pullover style Canada Day alt for the Jays is definitely in my plans!

 

Today's team is the Los Angeles Dodgers!

I figured the Dodgers could pull off a powder blue alt since every other team seems to be jumping back on the powder blue bandwagon, and the Bums were one of the teams who did it best.

 

I also whipped up a BFBS-style "Hollywood Nights" alt for home night games as a nod to the Lakers' alternates

 

C&C appreciated!

Love the subtle tweak on the original CA Angels hats of making the halo gold instead of white. Matches up nicely with the state outline patch. Those caps with the halo on top as well as the Seattle Pilots "scrambled eggs" caps have to be some of the most unique in baseball history.

Thanks for responding to my comment, coco1997.  Also thanks for adding the 93-98 Reds jersey and the 94-99 Astros jersey.  The gold on that Astros jersey looks sharp.  The Astros during that period were too navy-centric.  They should had added more gold or even kept orange from their previous looks.

 

Dodgers - The blue jerseys look cool. What I would expected them to wear had they adopted an alternate jersey  Also, the outside-the-box jerseys (black, powder blue) are executed wonderfully.  The Royals mid-2000s black jersey come to mind regarding the Dodgers black jersey, though I feel hypocritical because I hated the Royals BFBS set.
