I saw this today on SI and cant seem to find any history on this particular set/logo. I have seen black fashion jerseys with this chest logo sold at Target and the like, but always thought of them as being "bootleg' Anyone have any info?

Exhibit A of why the All-Star Game should NOT count. You don't get this type of entertainment anymore.

I like those uniforms. Except it should say Colorado instead of Rockies.

Watching the Rockies play in their black uniforms while they were playing the crew I realized how bad the script looks on the black. It has a huge silver/white stroke around the purple lettering. I wish the text was more purple with less of the silver outline then they would look much better.

Do the Rockies use their purple hats anymore? I haven't seen that in awhile either.

I think they wore them once or twice this season with the purple jerseys, right when they brought them back from the mothballs.

Can you imagine Pete Rose or Joe Morgan or guys like that stepping up to the plate like that? I guess I'm an old fart, but I prefer the days when both sides were out for blood in the All Star game.

Actually, I don't think they did.

Here's a photo of them in the purple tops on Opening Day

There is a photo album at MLB.com for each game played this season. It looks like the Rockies wear teh all-black with the purple jerseys at home at the purple brim hat with the purple jerseys on the road.

The Rockies only wore the all-purple cap for two seasons, 2003 and 2004. They only wore it at home in '03 and in '04 they wore it at home & on the road (they wore it with their regular grays on the road).

The Rockies' history of wearing the all-black caps and the purple brimmed caps has changed a lot over the years, but has remained pretty consistent now for quite some time.

Here's a breakdown of when they wore it:

2000

Black cap was worn for all games.

Purple brim was only worn with purple ALT jersey on road games.

2001

Purple brim cap was used for every single game, home & road.

Black cap was not worn at all.

2002

All black cap was used for home games only.

Purple brim cap was only used for road games.

2003

Purple brim cap was used only for home games.

All black cap was used only for road games.

All purple cap was used for a few home games with the purple ALT jersey

2004

All black cap was only used for home games.

Purple brim cap was only used for road games

All purple cap was used for select home games with the purple ALT jersey & also for a few road games with their regular gray road unis.

2005

All black cap was used for almost every home & away game.

Purple brim cap was used for both home & road games, but only when they wore the black ALT vests

2006

All black cap was only used and for both home & road games.

2007-2011

All black cap remained the regular home cap.

Purple brim cap was only used for road games.

They switched to this after their inaugural season because the letters were too hard to read on the original one...

LOL @ Bruce Ruffin.

I didn't think that the first year jerseys were very hard to read, and I saw them live a few times. I do think that the second year was an improvement though, and they should have just used the same lettering on the home jersey as well.

Because nothing says "exhibition for the fans" like career-limiting and permanent-injury collisions.
