Only 8 games with these unis over 2 years (Mavs debuting Cuban-era unis, Nuggets at tail-end of the navy/gold/wine Dikembe era unis)

Those Nuggets unis were pretty good. They just never really did anything with them as far as alternates go.

Someone mentioned this in the first few pages, but didn't have a pic. The only time Carolina wore silver pants with the white jerseys, except when I play against them on Madden.

 I think with their full pant stripe, it's not as egregious   

 

Agreed, but it would be wonderful if they could just use a white striped sock.

This set against anyone in the 1998-99 season is rare because it was the only season they wore the White Liberty jersey.

The first photo is from 2000, the only matchup between the current Patriots (their first year in that style) and the pre-black Detroit Lions.

And this one-off occurred on Thanksgiving 2002, with both teams wearing their throwback uniforms (incidentally, this was the last season before the Detroit Lions incorporated black in their color palette).

This matchup only occurred in 1988; only time the red-helmet Falcons met the 1988-2006 Chargers look.

 

IIRC, the Chargers only wore that uniform in 1988.

That's a great one. I never even knew that matchup happened. Way too much black, but a cool relic to look back on.

2000 St Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks

 

First Year of Rams new look w/ Gold pants that no longer exist

vs

Old Seahawks look, two years before the rebrand

 

Also this was before they were in the same division. Seattle still in the AFC West.

Rare Patriots uniforms matchups from 1999.

First one feels more weird than the second. The big-shoulder-logo Pats and the midnight-green Eagles coexisted for several years. Also, has the Eagles' shade of "green" gradually changed over the years? It doesn't look teal here. Could just be the lighting, I guess.

 

Also-also: nice facemask, Bruschi!

That's a bonus rate uniform and rare stadium matchup. That game is from 2000, when the Seahawks played at Husky Stadium in between the Kingdome and Century Link.

1998 Giants and Broncos. The only time these 2 sets met up:

I prefer to not think of this game.  They broke up our perfect season.

Here's another. Giants and Chargers 2005. Only time this one happened:

If we're dealing with Giants-Chargers matchups, then let's go to 1975 at Shea Stadium (the Giants' only year of calling that park home).

The Giants wore that beautiful uniform for only one season; so every game they played that year constituted a rare matchup.  And I would submit that anyone who fails to recognise that this is the Giants' best look ever is out of his/her bloody mind.

All of these shots come from This Week in Pro Football for week 7 of 1975.
