Players in the "wrong" uniforms

Recommended Posts

Even though the trade happened awhile ago, its still weird seeing Ichiro as a Yankee.

This: Ichiro+Suzuki+Seattle+Mariners+Photo+Day

Still looks more familiar than this: ichiroyankees-600x390.jpg

What's with that belt? Looks like the buckle is bigger than normal.

Mark Rypien

Oh, that's a good'n.

How about Mark Rypien...Philadelphia Eagle?

I see this and think how does a Mark Rypien win a super bowl over a loaded Buffalo Bills team with a HoFer at QB. I know the Skins was a good team but how?

I really, REALLY miss those Broncos unis. They were incredible.

I also really miss that Wilson-era block font with the diagonal S. Off the top of my head, the Chiefs and Broncos used it in the '90s, but I can't think of other teams. I wouldn't want every team using it, but it was a nice divergence while still being a block font.

Totally forgot Eddie George played a year for the Cowboys and wore the throwbacks too...

and color-vs-color alert.
Wish we saw color vs color more often. And I also wish the Bears would go back to those Orange jerseys. They'd look nice in the matte jersey material.

That Redskins team was the highest-powered offense of all time. They still had the Hogs offensive line, a powerful running game and the trio of Art Monk (HOF), Gary Clark (should be, probably will be in HOF) and Ricky Sanders. The defense had Darrell Green, Charles Mann, Monte Coleman, Matt Millen, Wilber Marshall, Kurt Gouveia, Alvin Walton...

This team was stacked on both sides of the ball and had a HOF coach too. They started 11-0 and finished the season 14-2. They scored the most points in the league and had the #2-ranked defense that year.

I know it's opinion and subjective but some do rank that 1991 Skins team the greatest SB team ever. That Bills team was stacked too, but not being able to finish the job 4 years in a row really hurts their legacy.

Considering he punched out more teammates than the number of games he actually played in for Seattle...

The New Jersey uniform will look wrong too.

He'll be remembered as a Viking, maybe...unless his legacy is just being on the injured list and a complete bust for every team he suited up for.

I'm sure this has been posted, but as a Red Sox fan, it's strange to see David Ortiz in a uniform that isn't Boston's. But it turns out he played for the Twins from 1997-2002, which was a time period I didn't pay attention to sports that much. It's also double strange since I began watching sports in 2003, Ortiz's first season with the Red Sox and Boston's championship year. Bonus points for being an alternate that he only had the chance to wear for three seasons.

Yeah, we had high hopes for him in Minnesota. My memory of him struggling, then hitting like 4 homers in 5 games and promptly getting injured. Then coming back from IR and repeating. When the Twins finally gave up on him, I did not dispute it...then, well...

Well that's an embarrassing mistake on my part, my bad.
And yeah, it's a good thing you let him go, he's helped in the past decade.

What happened? Was he hurt or what? He looks like he got sniped from the upper deck.
