Weird Falcons prototype on eBay


Lights Out

Recommended Posts

Looking at that feels like looking at a terrible counterfeit jersey except for the fact that none of the telltale signs of counterfeits are there. Needless to say, that uniforms looks pretty terrible. Although, that would be a cool sort of thing to own, just because it's such an oddity.

It's got the right tagging, everything looks legit and checks out... I don't know why I don't buy this. I know there are much weirder things out there, but I feel like this is some kind of screwup, not a prototype.

My thoughts exactly...it's the "SANDERS 21" that throws me off. Why make a prototype using the name and number of a long-gone former player? Or was there another Sanders playing for the Falcons around that time?

The Reebok logo on the jersey also seems off. As far as I know, the background colour in the Reebok logo always matches the surrounding colour. Here, the inside is black, while the surrounding colour is maroon

I don't know why but, I sort of like it.

Me too. I mean it's bad, but could have been turned in to something good with time.

The NFL really NEEDS a maroon team. I'd fully support the Falcons going to maroon and black when they move to their new stadium.

Tampa Bay comes close, but isn't true maroon a bit too dark to pair with black? We wouldn't want an Eagles 2.0, now would we? :P

(For the record, I really like Midnight Green, but I think they screwed up the color balance big-time. The jerseys, especially the green one, should match the helmet - more white and silver, ditch charcoal and only use black as trim.)

For a few years after I graduated, my alma mater of Red Oak High School in Texas wore the falcons logo with maroon and black uniforms.... It looked awful. Atlanta would be wise to stay away.

As for a team named the Red Oak Hawks wearing an F on their helmets in the shape of a falcon, dont get me started...
