Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

Thurman Thomas wearing the ultimate enemy uniform down in Miami in 2000.

That's not only the wrong uniform; it's the wrong facemask. I'll always associate Thomas with the "NOPO" (nose and oral protection only) facemask with a bar down the middle, since he seemed to be one of the only skill-position players (or at least the most prominent) who wore one.

You're right ... Good spot!! fumup.jpg

That was indeed his trademark™ face-mask .... maybe I'll ask my nephew to inquire about it the next time he calls into his radio program.

To me, I was gutted just seeing him in that uniform. He never wore it at the Ralph, was out injured and up in the press box.

Please put names with the pictures. Not everyone who is well known in your world is well known to anyone else.

Yes, they ought to,

I know that player on BRAVES card but the name just isn't coming to me, but the hockey player posted is Mats Sundin who played around 15 years with the MAPLE LEAFS.

As odd it may look seeing him in anything but a Toronto uniform I think some hockey fans may be forgetting that when he came to the NHL it was with Quebec NORDIQUES first. He was traded after a few seasons in a package that brought Wendel Clark to Quebec for a short time before their move to Denver. That was a big trade at that time.

A big club like that in the NBA without backup jerseys for their players, that's bizarre.

Seeing him return from his baseball adventure wearing number 45 was just sooooo wrong!

I'm glad he smartened up and went back to 23 ....

He looks a lot like Justin Morneau in this pic.
