Rare team matchups


Recommended Posts

 - Video of a one-season only matchup: In 1983, the first year of the Seahawks tweaked uniforms used until 2001, they met the orange-pants Browns for the only time.

 

 - Another video: The first season of the "big Flying Elvis on shoulders" Patriots met the 1986-95 Saints Dome Patrol era uniforms (their final season in them) for the only time in 1995.

That's an interesting case, because the Patriots and Rams both changed sets for 2000 so these shouldn't have coexisted. Even ignoring the fact the Rams brought out a throwback, this was the only meeting between the 2017-19 Rams set and the Patriots.

 

And on that note, the Rams only actually brought out the white horns once against the Patriots:

If you count the preseason, this would be the other time.

I was about to correct you until I realized their 2014 matchup was in London with Jacksonville designated as the home team. I'm sure it's already been covered somewhere within this thread's 65 pages, but this would also be the only time these uniforms coincided.

Those two were memorable games. Trey Junkin game and the Wind game.

The Atlanta Hawks introduced new uniforms for the 2007-08 season. It was also the last season for the Seattle Supersonics, so this does qualify for this thread.

1 year later: First season of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Last season of the Allen Iverson era 76ers uniforms.

The Dallas Cowboys didn't wear their usual white look in the 1995 Preseason, instead they wore the Double Star alternate for some reason. Not only are the uniform matchups rare, but the uniform itself is too, they had solid blue socks and no 75th anniversary patch. They wore the standard blue jersey against the Bills in Toronto and the Oilers in San Antonio.

 - A video of a 1990s matchup: From 1997, the first year of the Bucs "pewter" set meeting the Patriots "big flying Elvis" shoulder logos for the only time.

1991-92

 

Last year for those Leafs jerseys, first year for those Sharks jerseys

Oh man, this one is reeeeally, really good. I would have never guessed that these two uniforms ever overlapped. I always associate this Leafs uniform with the 70s and 80s and the Sharks, obviously with the 90s. 

 

If the Sharks played the Devils in 1991-92, it would have also been a rare matchup of the Sharks and the red and green Devils. That would have been the only year of overlap. Same with the green Whalers uniforms.
