A bold and daring Cincinnati Reds concept.

not to be an :censored:, but this is basically the unis from the 80's with serifs on the name font.

Now I'm gonna give a lil bit of history to the peeps that say black isn't necessary for the Reds. They have every right to use it. It was in the unis in the 40's and 50's all the way up until the Big Red Machine years. Granted right now they use a lil too much, being the black cap and black sleeves on the road. Give em red sleeves and the red cap (home cap) and they will hae used the perfect amount of black (basically the unis now are an update to the unis of the 50's).

Um, if you're going to presume to give history lessons, you should endeavor to ensure that your history is accurate.

The Reds didn't wear black in the 1940's and 1950's. They wore navy.

Those serifs do look good.

And you're so modest, everyone loves that.

I'm not seeing serifs on the Cincinnati script, which would seem to be even more important to tie to the logo than the player name.

I'm still looking for the "bold" or "daring" in this one, as well.

a white outline around the numbers and stuff on the road uniform would make this set the perfect uniform for the reds.

Which would basically be the 80s home unis with early 90s away unis :P

These are more closely related to the Reds uniforms of 1967-71 than they are to the ones of 1972-87 or 1988-92. The Reds uniforms of the 80s were pullovers with red and white trim on the collar and sleeves, and the double-knit red and white waistband. Other than being sleeveless, these are very close to the 1967-71 model, my favorite Reds uniforms of all time.
