When did they use it, like late 90's? I don't even know.... I didn't like it.

It was mid-90's, around 1996 maybe? I recall being in Michigan around that time and seeing all the new Pistons logo merchandise. I still want the horse to be part of the identity. I think it still works for them.

Who ever came up with those colors was smokin' something.  :rolleyes:

He was reading merchandise sales reports. Teal was the wonder color of the early 90's. The San Jose Sharks were at or near the top in NHL sales. Expansion teams like the Florida Marlins and the Jacksonville Jaguars started with teal as their primary color. While the Sharks have kept teal as their primary color, the Marlins and Jags have gone to the wonder color of the late 90's - black. The Pistons went back to their roots - the Marlins and Jags didn't have roots so they went with the latest color of the day (although black was a secondary color for both).

Well, they do have a black alt.
