Favorite Defunct Uniforms


OnWis97

Recommended Posts

NFL Helmet: Eagles Green and Silver. Loved that shade of green with the silver. Also preferred the shape of the wing. The jerseys were not great though.

NFL Jersey: Bengals. They had maybe the best one and they went to the garbage they wear now. Why?

NFL Jersey and Helmet: Old Tampa Bay. Loved the colors and Bucco Bruce. It was time for a change, I suppose, but those were nice.

MLB Cap: Brown and Orange Padres (1986 through about 1990)

MLB Jersey: Brewers before their most recent change.

NHL Jersey: North Stars "N Star". (weep). But since they don't exist, I'll go with the Christmas Devils. Maybe black is more appropriate, but the green and red was just so appealing to me. And unique.

NBA Jersey: Red Washington Bullets. I know it was uninspired, but the simple red with blue/white letters and numbers were nice. I liked those unis much better than the Wiz.

i'm suprised to find that the chi sox unis i like so much apparently didnt exist according to sportslogos.net. they brought them out in '87, i believe. it was when sports illustrated had a baseball preview with all the hats on the cover. a ton of teams went throwback that year. the sox went "original" retro. they were great. be on the lookout for a picture

I'd have to say most of the baseball uniforms from when I first fell in love with baseball (1986). I like that some of the teams wear these old unis like once a year or so. I'm glad they're not here full time but every now and then it's good to see the old stuff make an appearance here and there.

Favorite football uniforms anyway

Some of them are from defunct teams and leagues too

Helmet: Boston Breakers & Jacksonville Bulls with thir "wrap-around" logo design Oakland Invaders for looking cool, Michigan Panthers great design and original colors, USFL, Toronto Argos "Ship" Logo helmet CFL , Birmingham Fire, WLAF (reminds me of a '57 Chevey paintjob) Iowa Barnstorms and Memphis Pharoahs, AFL I like designs that incorporate the whole helmet and not just the sides.

Jersey: Pittsburgh Maulers USFL, good colors that flowed well together, Patriots red jersey w/ UCLA shoulder stripes, a classic to me, Falcons' red jersey w/ grey numbers- I still like them better than their current but at least they're red again. Iowa Hawkeye's "throwback" jersey that almost looked like it had wings on the front.

Pants: Arizona Wranglers USFL "Copper w/ flames 1984 someone else needs to adopt metallic copper as a color again, Patriots "NE" streamer stripes many people don't see the hidden "NE" and its better than the bland stripes later designs went back to, 1993, Colts blue visitor pants, 1995 I never did like the all-white look the Colts have, Lions Blue visitor pants w/ gray socks, I was sorry more people didn't like them as much as I did. Toronto Argos's "stud-stripe" pants, wish they kept them after the revamp.

Oh yeah, teal baby.

Weirdest thing is that I found one of those (the 94 version, which has a white outline around the wordmark as seen here) in Dixon, Ill. a year after they decided to discontinue them.

Hell yeah I bought it.
