When I think of the Liberty alternates, Gretzky is the first skater that comes to mind.

Charlie Hough, the knuckleballer whose career lasted almost a quarter-century, played the last two seasons of his career for the young Florida Marlins (and kudos to him wearing the uniform and stirrups the RIGHT way here).

Here is old Dwight Gooden on a day the dome AC must have been on max. Or, he just really found the jacket stylish.

Satchel Paige

This is the winner. I always associate him with like negro leagues flannel uniforms and cotton hats. But there he is in full uniform at the Astrodome.

Cecil Fielder was only 35 on the Angels, but I felt like my ost everybody looked a good in this set; big fat guys especially:

Maybe the faux vest helped trim down the fatties?  This look... while a better uniform... isn't as flattering.

I'm a little surprised that the G.O.A.T. hasn't already been posted yet.

I wouldn't have bet on seeing Tim Donaghy in this thread.

Pretty good juxtaposition of eras here - Craig MacTavish, the last of the helmetless players, on the Blues in their wild late-90s jerseys.

I can't believe Washington Hockey Team has had that awful uniform for what - 15 years now?  Are they the last team using an Edge template?  I'm in the minority of not hating the wordmark, but the sleeves are just brutal.

Meh, it grows on you after a while. Plus, they've only missed the playoffs once (and won their first cup) while wearing it, so it may realistically be around for another five years or so.  

Also, the Bruins and Blue Jackets are still using their original edge template. The Senators are still using what looks to be their edge template too, but I'm assuming that'll change along with the logo.  

 

Btw I'm with you on not hating the wordmark... then again I'm definitely biased because they're my favorite team. That said, I'd be fine if they just put the Weagle on the front of the jerseys or went with a completely different design altogether. I'm not biased to the point of thinking the Caps Washington Hockey Team has the coolest most amazing logo and uniform set in the entire NHL.
