Uniforms that just seem out of place

I was looking through my closet the other day and found my alternate California Single-A Stockton Ports cap and it got me thinking about cap and jersey combos that just look "wrong" when compared to the rest of a team's uniform set. The offending cap and jersey are these:

The rest of the Ports uniforms home, away, BP are all one of their four primary colors, red, blue, white, grey. This set though is of course a homage to their parent club the A's, but it ends up just being a strange out of place jersey colorwise made worse by the logo with the P'(anchor).

So what other jerseys are similarly out of place given the rest of their uniform set?

A lot of NBA alternate jerseys (NOT throwback jerseys) look/looked completely out of place compared to the rest of the set. The gold Wizards alternate was one example. Absolutely no blue, different wordmark, different name-on-back, different collar, different shorts style, tramp stamp, and shiny fabric. I think the only thing those gold alternates had in common with the rest of the set was the number font.

Did they actually wear these?

I went to a Ports game and asked a worker in the store and they told me that these have never been worn for a game.

The Mets' black jersey, retained for this season despite the elimination of black from the rest of the set, would have to qualify.

Some time in the future, civilizations will look back at the 2012 NY Mets with no historical backing behind them and wonder WTF they were on.

The year they came out with them (2007 I think it was) they did once or twice. But in the end I think even they had to admit how silly they looked. They do still sell them however even today.

Thanks. I was thinking of buying that cap but wasn't sure since I like getting caps that have actually seen the field. Yeah, I see plenty of them in the store.

All three of the current Wild' Jerseys seem out of place

As it stands the team has no identity, just a grab bag of dated looking jerseys that try in vain to please everyone. Do they want to look like a 2000's expansion team (road white), a 2000's expansion team trying to play original six dressup while ignoring crucial aspects like hem stripes (home red) or do they want to brand around a painfully generic jersey that tries to combine vintage with modern (green, alt).

I don't know either. The tragedy is, they could have one of the best identities in the NHL if they made the decision to have uniformity.

So historians from future civilizations will spend their time analyzing the cohesiveness of the uniform sets of ancient sports teams? Sweet.
