Well, we know Byron19's over there, and I think I've seen Arquimedez Pozo (SoSH poster) over here a couple times too.

Incidentally, I whipped this graphic up since a couple posters over there were asking about the TATC jersey the Sox were supposed to wear (they didn't, since the jerseys arrived to Fenway Park late).

Here it is:

The grey is supposed to be metallic silver. I can't say for sure if this rendition is 100% accurate, I'm going off seven-year-old memories here since photos are nonexistant.

Perhaps this is the origin of the most recent red alternate?

Thats pretty...um...non baseball ish...the traditionalists will go crazy, but I think it looks pretty cool. Too bad it wont see the light of day...

Yep, they do. Green with "RED SOX" written in white with red outline, the "two-sox" logo on the left sleeve. I have one hanging in my closet.

Can you possibly find me a pic of this jersey, or take one of yours??

If I can't Google it, I'll definitely get a shot of mine posted.

[EDIT: Lookie here! First shot!]

And that Sox jersey I posted earlier was from the much-maligned 1999 Turn Ahead The Clock promotion. It was, thankfully, never worn.

Well I might be getting a job at Russell (who makes the Red Sox jerseys)...I have a second interview on Thursday, maybe I can ask if anything is in the works for them

That won't do you any good. Majestic became the exclusive uniform supplier for MLB starting this year.

That would be me, although I've only posted a few times at most. Was I that memorable??

Back to the subject at hand, I too have a vest-y vibe here. Crap.

Anything like the Paw Sox recently adopted?

Totally new? Well, the Sox have changed their lettering by degrees over the years. If you get the Richard Ben Cramer book on baseball (with the silver cover), you can see some very interesting and subtle changes to the letters from the 40s to today. Look especially at the first publicity stills of Pumpsie Green, the Sox' first African-American player, and there are little curlicue flourishes in places on the outlines of the letters.

The possibility of a new script freightens me. Yes, the font has changed, but it is essentially the same.

Man, this is going to be terrible.

Just curious, BB ... how are you getting just snippets of information? I completely believe you, but I just picture Charles Steinberg walking by your desk saying:

"Completely different word mark!"

And then running away before you ask him what the hell he's talking about. :D

Well I know someone who is in the "higher" part of the organization. He will tell me how the process is coming and such, and today that they were working on a whole new script that the jersey would have. A sleek style lettering.

Guys, more good news....I guess....

I heard today that the new jersey is going to feature a straight across lettering on the front of the jersey and the colours will be red, navy blue, and silver.

More news to come.

Silver???? Teddy Ballgame's head just spun around in its can. I'll reserve my judgement, it could be cool.. So far everything else the Henry/ Werner/ Lucchino syndicate has done is working out well above any of our expectations.

Anyone remember the Alt Caps they had a few years back. 98 I think. The pair of sox on the hat with a silver underbill. and when I say silver, I mean metallic. You noticed it too cause it came up on the hat, just on the edge. I don't know if they were ever worn, but I think they were kinda precursors to batting practice hats.

Anyway, I have on of those hats. I'll have to dig it up someday. Its a cool hat minus the silver underbill. I'm pretty sure its a 59/50 so I think it was authentic. I've never seen a non-authentic 59/50 hat. But, as always, I am an idiot so I could be wrong.

Doesn't sound that horrible. I reserve my judgment until the public unveiling, but I could see silver outlines instead of white, without it being as drastic as first impressions might lead.
