Brewers blast from the past

That is the best uniform era ever for the Brewers. I wish they still had that look...

Really? I don't miss those at all. I think the font was a little tortured. I much prefer the classics or the current set to the mid-90s uniforms.

I'd tend to agree. Although I was never much of a fan of the "crossed bats" logo, the wordmark and cap were perfect.

I loved the reflection of the city's architecture found in that wordmark. It was one of the few designs that actually reflected something specific about a club's home city without having to include an actual landmark in it.

The only problem I have with the new Sunday alts is the wordmark - I think it's too generic to become the new main uniform, which I very much want.

You know, I wouldn't have thought the Brewers 94-99 identity was so bad if they would have just combined certain elements of the 94-96 style (thin piping, gray that had a slight greenish tint) with the 97-99 cap/wordmark logos.

I agree. The jerseys (especially the grey road) were tremendous as was the "M" cap. The crossed bats logo was not very nice. And for the first couple of years, they wore a horrible "MB" cap. Once they dumped that they had great unis.

No. They toned down the green considerably - piping on the away was changed from green to blue, the road cap was changed from green bill to all blue, and the road gray was changed from a greenish gray to a blueish gray.

They also removed most of the green from the jackets and dugout apparel. It remained in the logo, and as an outline on the letters and numbers.
