I can't find one ANYWHERE for the life of me...

It was the game in 99 when we played Cleveland, and half the league participated in that abomination of jersey design.

Don't have an in-game shot, but this is a scan from the MLB Style Guide:

Thank you btw! This isn't NEARLY as bad as the Mets.

I went to that game... disgusting. I don't think there was one decent jersey across the league.

Apparently, awful color matches and giant logos are all the crave in the coming century.

Here's a link with a lot of them: http://www.angelfire.com/blues/new_yorker/TATC.html

Oops! Sorry about the Thome picture, when I first looked it was kinda zoomed out, didn't know he was "adjusting" so much.

I think you paid about $19 bucks too much.

i also remember that the p.a. nnouncer was not gene honda but a robot voice. a robot announcing jason dellaro in a horrific uniform to a stadium full of empty blue seats was a pretty low point in sox history.

I was at the game, and the PA sounded like the voice of "Joshua" in WarGames. We got killed that night by the Indians.

It's no thrown World Series, but yeah, that's even embarassing to read about, let alone be in the stands for.

BTW, if you have MVP 2005 for the PC, you can live the nightmare whenever you want!

BTW, that yellow Royals jersey on the first page was actually from a different TATC promotion that the Mariners staged in 1998.

Ah yes, I remember the "turn the clock forwards" promotion! It was pretty funny that those horrific uniform designs were what they supposedly thought the "future" uniforms were going to be right in a time when almost all baseball teams were going with retro uniform designs. I think the Sox got off pretty lightly on their "future" uniform considering some of the other ones that were used.

It definitely could have been much, much worse.

:cower: I have that issue of SI with those pictures and I was aghast at those ideas. You can see that the Astros uni's were a big influence on those. :puking:

Every time this subject comes up, I'm reminded of one uniform I'd forgotten.

By the way, I suppose if these jerseys are any indication, crooked logos are going to be all the rage in the future?
