Seattle Mariners Teal Jersey

I'm not really a fan. Teal just doesn't work for a major color in a jersey(M's/Marlins), unless there is a major part off color(Sharks/Jaguars)

You and I disagree strongly in this regard.

My major quibble with the Mariners' resuscitated teal alternates is that they decided to outline the compass rose in teal this time, instead of white. Makes it looks small and disconnected from the chest wordmark.

Also, are they using flat gray this time around, or the original sparkly silver?

Well, I'm going to disagree with you on this. It's a great look. Of course you are a fan of the team with the most boring logo and uniforms in MLB, so of course you aren't going to like something that has color in it. :P

They wore it once last year for a throwback game and this offseason, they've made it their home alternate (Friday games) and the dark blue alternate is now strictly for the road. They might consider bringing back the blue cap with a teal bill next year too.

"Sparkly silver". I had always regretted not getting the teal back when. So I decided to forgo my son's tuition and buy an authentic one this year. I mean, a year of home schooling will do him good, and I can buy one more jersey too...

I?d love to see the Marilns wear their shade of teal, which is lighter. I don't see why they have black jerseys in Miami.

Actually, in their two different wordmarks on the teal, the 1995-1996 version (which is the uniform which was brought back) has the compass rose outlined in teal. They didn't change a look or create something that was never there.

The best teal jersey would be the 1995-1996 wordmark (the 1994 one had too many outlines and was too difficult to read) coupled with the 1994 compass rose which was outlined in white.

Negative, Captain.

Fair enough. Both wordmarks on the mothership are incorrect then. The white outline on the compass rose is better.

It looks a better with a white outline around the woodmark imo.
