Ok, sure I missed this one, but what a ridiculous throwback to wear. The JUST dumped these not even a decade ago. Is it Tony Gwynn night or something? How much more can the Pads knob Gwynn? Not that I dislike him, hell, I actually really like the guy, but this has to be at least the 5th night of Tony Gwynn praise.

At least take it back to the brown pinstripes of the mid 80s - that should be far enough.

They've been celebrating history of the Padres starting with 70's night, and then 80's night and then this which is a tribute to their I think it was 1998 World Series team.

exactly, and they look just like they did when i was growing up .... i'm not an expert on whats accurate and whats not but good memories nonetheless :D

oh and by the way, these uniforms remind me of one player: Ken Caminiti.

Man I miss Cammy, Wally looking like the Swinging Friar, Hells Bells being played when Trevor would come into the game, and the palm trees past the outfield wall.

As for the unis themselves these represented the Padres for me, and they should have never changed.

Now I was at a bar last night, they had sportscenter on, and I saw some Pads-Giants highlights in progress....I thought something looked different, but that didn't even cross my mind...

SD ended up winning in 10 in these:

And these are the Padres uniforms I grew up knowing them as. And that same set was the basis of course for my little league uniforms back when I was on the Padres in I want to say 1995...I miss them...

Dont get me wrong, I do like the 1999 uniform but I'd prefered the Brown steipes uniform better and it has not been 5 years since the Padres changed their uniform.

Next thing you know is that the Angels will wear the :cursing: PERIWINKLE :cursing: uniforms on SEPT 23 vs the Mariners.

I HOPE NOT BECAUSE I'M GOING TO THE GAME.

As a lifelong Halo fan, if they ever brought those back, I'd probably chug a whole bottle of jack. Then again, since those were the Disney uniforms, and Disney no longer being the owner, I don't think we'll have to worry about that happening.

THANKS GOD FOR THAT.

THAT UNIFORMS WAS JUST PART OF THE HALO CURSED THAT STARTED FROM 1986-2001.

I'm surprised that ROGGINS-SEIMERS 2 didnt metion those uniforms while they were talking about the worst sports uniforms yesterday.

I'm actually re-purchasing one of those hats soon. The uniforms were crap, but I really liked the solid navy cap. I wore it all the time. Plus, I don't think I have enough Halos hats (I have 7 right now).

I honestly have never liked any of the Padres uniforms. The brown and yellow never went well together. The blue and orange was decent, but nothing outstanding. I don't mind the current blue and white, but cannot stand the script/font used for "Padres" on the front of the jereseys.

Love the brown and orange of the late 1980s and early 1990s. It's too bad that the yellow is the throwback of choice for most, because I'd love to find something in the brown/orange era. That was a great hat. And now they have blue like everyone else.
