Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

Now I see.

That homage to the original Braves is pretty cool.

IIRC, those were based on actual Milwaukee Brewers minor league uniform from the 40s, and they were a Braves farm team at the time. Or something like that, I'm sure someone will chime in with more details.

I know this was probably posted a year ago, but Andrew Bynum never even actually played a game for the 76ers. Are there any other instances of players being introduced to the media (with a team), having a photo shoot and never playing with them??

The closest thing may have been Joe Rudi, Rollie Fingers and Vida Blue in 1976. Pics of Fingers have to be deep in this thread,but I couldn't find any good authentic pictures of Rudi with the Red Sox or Blue with the Yankees.

In response to the question of players who did a photo shoot with their new team, but never played a game with them, here's my submission from 5 years ago:

Here's one that most people don't remember...

Portland picked up Moses Malone in the ABA dispersal draft, and traded him away before the '76-'77 season started. Just about as bad as picking Bowie over Jordan, IMHO. Enough ranting, here's a pic...
