More than anything, this makes me mad that the Panthers haven't changed their jerseys yet. Those things are really dated.

Last time I checked, "awesome" wasn't spelled "d-a-t-e-d".

You mean Titans right?

Wow, those '97 Dolphins unis had the worst number spacing ever

Another rarity from 1984: Last year of those Philadelphia Eagles uniforms, and the first of those Patriots unis w/the UCLA-style stripes.

And that's the best both teams have ever looked. Sadly, both got Nikefied the next season.

That shade of blue for Denver was beautiful!!!! And reminds me of childhood!!

Surprisingly this uniform matchup only happened once. The GREENWHITES wore the watermellon alts the two times Ottawa played them at Mosaic in the regular season before this year's uniform makeover. 2014 Pre-season. Ottawa's first game back.

These two uniform sets coincided for only one season (and for eight games) during the 1989-90 season. I cannot find any in-game pics.

Ready? First season of the Ducks, and the last season for all these unis. Of course, the ducks met the Nucks, Wild, and Sens in the playoffs that year, so not totally rare, but many of these are the only matchups ever. Although, you could say it was the only season for the Ducks against every other team because EDGE changed all designs.

The LA Rams vs the Oakland Raiders.

 

Or maybe it's the LA Rams vs the LA Raiders

 

Or maybe it's the LA Rams vs the Las Vegas Raiders

 

Or the STL Rams vs the Oakland Raiders.

 

Either way, no matter what happens this jersey matchup will look the exact same the next two years. Stupid NFL

Here's another sneaky rare matchup:

 

mar-1997-right-wing-mike-keane-of-the-co

 

The first two years for the Colorado Avalanche were also the last two years the Penguins where those diagonal PITTSBURGH uniforms.

 

Technically, this uniform matchup had only 2 games.

Also cannot find game pics, but the 1997-98 NHL season witnessed the only meetings (two games, to be exact) between the first-year Carolina Hurricanes and the last year of the Gretzky-era Los Angeles Kings uniform set.

Another rarity: The Vancouver Canucks third-generation 'flying skate' uniform set (BONUS: the third jersey pictured worn in the last two years of that uniform set) met the first-year Phoenix Coyotes for only one season (four games, to be exact) in the 1996-97 season.

Another rarity: These two uniform sets, the last year of the Denver Nuggets "rainbow" set and the first year of the Phoenix Suns' first-genration "sunburst" unis coincided in the 1992-93 season only (for four games at that).

The Kings/Canes and Nuggets/Suns ones are great examples for this thread. They feel like complete clash of eras. This is my favorite thread in the forum.

Every now and again I look for NHL match-ups that fall in this thread. I'm not sure if it was one of the sets listed a few pages back, but the Mighty Ducks met the Boston Bruins two times in 1993-94 and not at all in 1995 (lockout). Not a great picture, but it's the best that I could find.

No pictures found of the Ducks eggplant set versus the white Bruins jersey.
