The throwbacks were a nice touch today, but it kinda falls flat when the Mets wear their black alts. The Mets shoudl hav eworn throwbacks to or at least their road greys which are not far off from their 1974 unis.

I'm dating my age; I remember these unis and watched the Braves play in them. I believe Hank Hammered #715 vs. the Dodgers, I saw the highlites on the news that night. One of my favorite players from the 1970's, Bob Horner - 3B wore these.

They used to call his spot "Horner's Corner" @ 3rd base. He was fun to watch - had a decent stick too!

My favorite part of the uni is the feather on the sleeve, very distinctive! Yeah baby!

Well thse were the unis they wore when Aaron broke Ruths record so wearing them was more tehn approriate. However their current unis ar eteh best they ever had.

Those Braves unis are awful... Jeebus people... if you are going to embrace Retro, embrace the retros that look GOOD....

Brother, this is yet again another case of having to agree to disagree.

I think these unis are excellent. Very fine retro uni, one of the most perfect throwbacks in all the leagues.

I'd support a 15-20 game set where these were their unis. I'd like to see the aways, too!

I'm old enough to remember those uniforms, too. The jerseys were terrific, however I always hated the hat, especially the lower-case "a," and the batting helmets inexplicably had a white bill which did not match the cap and looked really weird.
