It’s been awhile since I’ve started a topic, and as usual, we’re looking back at time. With it being Throwback Thursday, and the fact that I’m wearing my logo-less Mighty Ducks jersey, I figured that we can look at the uniforms we grew up with and miss. So without further ado, here’s my list:1. The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim: Back in the day, their uniforms and color scheme seemed strange to many people, and the fact that they were based on a children’s movie made them even that much more unique. I remember the Mighty Ducks being my go-to team when playing NHL 2005 on the original Xbox. The reason why I chose them most of the time was,of course, their sweet color scheme, logo, and jerseys.2. FLORIDA Marlins: Another case of a perfect original set and color scheme dropped in favor of an awful one. I didn’t really think about their identity as a classic until it was long gone like a home run.3. Ottawa Senators: This is more of a logo missed by me rather than uniforms. I really liked the logo they used in the 1990s and early 2000s.4. Purple and teal Arizona Diamondbacks: I don’t really remember watching much baseball in my early childhood, so I missed really being able to appreciate these uniforms when they were in use. However, I do sort of remember admiring the pure amount of coolness that was the appearance of Randy Johnson. Anyways, I’m getting off topic. I believe that their current color scheme is a little too generic for my taste, and I think that they need to go back to something a little more daring and unique. Well, that’s my list. How about you guys? What uniforms are you nostalgic for? 1 Location:Michigan Master of the Irrelevant 12,948 Sports Logos 6 Share on other sites 6,684 posts Members 382 493 Share on other sites Favourite Logos:Detroit Red Wings, 80’s Detroit Tigers logo, Robo Penguin, Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, teal and purple Diamondbacks, Montreal Expos, Philadelphia Phillies 70s-80s maroon,, teal Florida Marlins, throwback Lions logo Members BrianLion Here’s some of my uniforms and identities that I miss in sports: Anaheim Mighty Ducks: For anyone who was born in the late 80’s and early 90’s, the Mighty Ducks was an unmistakable identity that helped spurred growth in the NHL. They’re one of my all-time favorite identities in sports from the unique color scheme (eggplant and jade) to the classic hockey mask logo (which is currently on the alts). But what made this identity so special is how recognizable the look is to a non-hockey fan. Even though I don’t watch much hockey, I still know that’s the old Mighty Ducks logo because of the movies and TV show. If it’s one identity I want back right now in any sport, it’s the Mighty Ducks and it’s not even close. Old Tampa Bay Devil Rays uniform (1998-2000): For some odd reason, I have a huge soft spot with these uniforms. It might be that there is some serious nostalgia in watching Wade Boggs’ 3000th hit or the fact that I have a snapback of the cap they wore at the time. I know most prefer the look from 2001-2007 but this is better than those uniforms for the simple reason that it has a uniquely “Florida” feel with the gradients. The only thing I would change is remove the “devil” off the uniforms change the gradients to match the current color scheme (from Navy to Columbia Blue to Yellow), and change the cap to Navy. If they could do that, The Rays would look a billion times better while retaining their unique color scheme. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: I’m not the first and definitely the last to say it, but the old look was light-years better than the current. I seriously don’t know why they changed from one of the best looks in NFL history to one of the worst ever. Pewter and Red was truly a unique color combo and that helmet is awesome. San Diego Padres: Brown and Yellow is the way to go my friend. Currently, the Padres look like the poor man’s New York Yankees outside of the pinstripes and is so boring to look at. Plus, many fans remember this look during the days of Dave Winfield and Goose Gossage. I mean if the Blue Jays can go back to a retro-esque look, so can the Padres Old Florida Marlins: I love the amount of teal in the uniforms and reminded me of the 1997 World Series. But my favorite uniforms is the inaugural road uniforms they wore. 1,690 posts Favourite Logos:Dunking Cardinal, Punisher Skull, 1990’s Orlando Magic 844 Recommended Posts PhantomDreamer Tigers6884 493 3 Uniform looks and identities that you miss in sports Tigers6884 3,182 posts Location:The Land of Pleasant Living Any of the Bucks’ “Irish Rainbow” unis, but particularly this one: Tigers6884 48 JayMac Link to post Share on other sites 1 Link to post 1,574 posts All Activity Tigers6884 71 12,948 Posted May 3, 2014 493 0 Raysfan12 9,812 posts 48 Posted May 2, 2014 TheRicSlick Followers 3 Members Next Raysfan12 This topic is now closed to further replies.

This is my favorite Whalers set (if the blue sweater was green, it would be perfect):San Antonio Spurs – this should have been the basis for the silver alt’s design (maybe without the Bulls-style shorts)Milwaukee Brewers – the nice color scheme, the Ball-in-Glove logo, and the matching uniform scripts just simply works for me (pinstripes aren’t necessary, though):Dallas Cowboys – damn, 1 shade of silver,1 shade of blue, slab-serif numbers, and striped socks really come together for a good look: Share on other sites SFGiants58 1,450 Discogod 924 posts Go To Topic Listing 282 88 Share this post Link to post Members Share on other sites 1 SportsLogos.Net 382 leopard88 Members 12,948 Location:Michigan 493 Posted May 3, 2014 Page 1 of 11   0 493 Sign in to follow this   Posted May 3, 2014 JayMac Posted May 2, 2014 129 Can you technically “miss” the Buccaneers look when they haven’t actually worn the new ones yet?Everything’s fair game.Yes because the new one is a train wreck. AgentColon The classic look the Buccaneers sported for 17 years:Even though their current set has grown on me, I still love the Wizards n these uniforms:And last but not least, the Marlins. When they had teal in the color scheme they where in my mind, the best looking team in the MLB. Those uniforms even made me a fan of the club. I miss them .

On the throwbacks, the stars and stripes are on the side of the uniform and the wordmarks and numbers are centered.Now this is going to bother me.

Some of the “minor league” football uniforms are just phenomenal to look at. Posted May 2, 2014 Link to post 0 Share on other sites 3,583 Prev I can totally agree on the Padres, Marlins, and Eagles.Another one is the Nets, who had the opportunity to reclaim their beautiful classic look, but failed to do so.I am glad that they have worn these unis as throwbacks several times over the years:…including in the 2003 Finals:They last wore the home version in the final pre-season game last season:And they wore the road version a few times during the 2011-12 season:I would have so loved it if these unis had been re-adopted. I know that they have had good success with their understated black and white unis. But I would be far more into the team if they had returned to these.
