Rare team matchups

1998 Diamondbacks vs Reds in their non black pinstripes, only happened in '98

The 1998 Diamondbacks identity was all over the place. On the road they wore black hats with teal bills and teal numbers, but their batting helmets were black with a purple bill. At home they wore the purple hats with the A logo most of the time, but the batting helmets were purple with the D snake logo.

It's like they didn't know what they wanted their colors or their official primary logo to be. Actually I think they still don't know what logo they want to use.

Not sure I understand the Heat-Lakers and Heat-Cavs pics?

Heat-Lakers was Lamar Odom in Miami vs. Kobe in the white jersey (Odom only spent 1 year in Miami), and the Cavs-Heat pic was Odom in Miami vs. Carlos Boozer in the first year of that Cavs jersey.

I mean, Odom vs. Boozer in the East only happened that year (Both went West in the offseason) and Odom/Kobe have either been Laker teammates or playing on different LA teams save for that brief Dallas stint

It's not just rare uniforms- it's rare team matchups, and there have been so many instances of one-year only situational matchups, team or individual.

First year of that North Star uni (they had ditched their classic uni after the '91 Finals) and the last year of that Penguins uni

Here are a few involving the final year of the Minnesota North Stars- and those unis- against some 1992-93 debuted unis:
