Rare team matchups


Recommended Posts

 

Let's talk about the CFL for a bit; this is a rare matchup in that league, in 1985, the 'new-generation' Saskatchewan Roughriders met the Montreal Concordes for only two games (the accompanying video is from one of those 1985 games); the next year, they met the 'one-year' Montreal Alouettes for two games as well (unable to find any pics/video of 1986, however). The only differences in the uniforms for Montreal was the logo on the sleeves, so that qualifies for this thread.

 

 

Similarly, in 1985, those same Roughriders met the yellow-helmeted Hamilton Tiger-Cats for only two games that year, the Ti-Cats changed their helmet color the next year.

Best picture I could find of Mariners-Brewers from 1993. First year of navy and teal Mariners and final year of blue and yellow Brewers .

Can't really get a good view but that's still a bit jarring to think that they coincided.

These two looks coincided for one season (1988-89); the last year of the Canucks golden "shoulder-V" jerseys (before the went to white jerseys) and the first year of the Wayne Gretzky-era first-generation silver/black look for the Kings.

 

I felt like that the colorful look these two teams had were robbed when the Kings changed their colors that season (both teams had yellow jerseys as their home ones). But then again, the silver/black look is the one most people like.

The first silver/black look was so '90s (even though it started in the late '80s) but still so good. MUCH better than what they wear now. I kind of feel like I would've liked to see a purple/black set with purple as the primary, but they never did that. I feel like hockey is probably the best sport for that color scheme.

This one is from 1984: First year with the Buffalo Bills sporting red helmets, and the last season for the Philadelphia Eagles 'winged' jerseys. The two teams would meet again the following year, with the Eagles toning down their jersey design. So, this was the only time these two designs coincided.
