Good unis ruined by bad play?

What are some unis you feel were prematurely changed because they became associated with losing?

I ask because I was looking over some Brewers paraphanillia I've collected over the years and realized how much I liked the mid 90's unis (though I didn't care for the "Motre Bame" logo): http://www.baseballhalloffame.org/exhibits...mp;Entryid=1777

Another one that comes to mind is the Bengals... if only they'd have stuck with them for one more year.

I agree 100% with you on the Brewers. The MB logo stunk. But once they dumped that cap for the "M" cap, their uniforms became outstanding classic baseball uniforms. Right Here

As for the Bengals, they may have changed even if they did not stink. As great as those jerseys were, I think they may have scrapped them for the trend of today.

Same with the creamsicle bucs. I love those uniforms and wish they still had them. Best helmet ever. But I think they would probably have changed either way.

Other examples:

--The Christmas Devils. They got good after switching from those great/unique colors to the very boring red and black. I always wondered whether good play would have kept those great uniforms alive.

--The T-Wolves. They stunk it up in their original uniforms. And while the logo may have quickly become outdated, the uniforms were great.

I'm still ****ing mad they changed. I loved those unis.

I was looking through some old cards the other day, and I agree completely. Another example would be the Cleveland Cavaliers. I really liked the ones when they had when they had umm...Shawn Kemp, I guess. Honestly, I liked the ones with the big blue thing going across the chest, but these were better.

I always thought they had stripes on both sides though.

Here's some honorable mentions:

the pre-tomahawk 1980s Atlanta Braves jerseys

the green and gold Jazz unis of the early 80s (Adrian Dantley, Darrell Griffith and crew)

the pre-1993 Mariners jerseys

Don't mention the Vitale-era Pistons "shocking" jerseys.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

AMEN AMEN AMEN. BUCCO BRUCE RULES!

Hence my (user)namesake...

Hey. um...guys...we're leaving a team out here.

Yeah--a team that had one of the all-time classic looks--just too bad they were marred by 50-some odd years of losing and mediocrity (with a handful of decent years thrown in, like 1998, per se?)

Know which team I'm talkin' bout?

Take a look-see:

(Just to put these in persective...I wouldn't expect anyone to remember Sam Mitchell, #30...but the other three, in case you don't remember? #37, Larry Centers, one of the game's best fullbacks in his day...and one of the better pass-catching backs the league has seen; #87, RICKY PROEHL (yeah--dude's been around for a MINUTE), and #23, Garrison Hearst--yes, THAT Garrison Hearst. I didn't even include Eric Metcalf, Boomer Esiason, Simeon Rice, Rob Moore (NOT Rod Tidwell ^_^ ), or Thomas Jones--or Dan Dierdorf, for that matter, or Eric Metcalf's pops, Terry--who wore the same number).

p.s. I left jake Plummer out for a very good reason...

The brown and gold of the Padres. It was classic, original, made sense, but the team never won until they added the Taco Bell orange and then the navy.

Also, the Mariners trident M logo. Was a great look but was considered bad luck to have it shown upsidedown.
