Wasn't fond of the 70's style when I lived in it,and still don't like it. Ah well....

I don't have any problem with the color scheme, but that neckline...:?:

Remember those turn-of-the-century caps they wore back when they won it all in '79? Not to mention all those "Stargell Stars".

I thought the jerseys were only for the extra activities and that team uniforms were worn during the games. Of course, living without television, such subtleties could easily be lost on me.

I'm thinking the same thing, especially since Paulie, Pods, Buehrle and Garland all wore those blue jerseys during warmups at last year's All Star Game but wore more traditional looking jerseys during the actual game.

All Star jerseys based on the colour schemes of the home park's team seems to be the hot new trend for the aughts. These are ugly!

Yay, finally the two-button henley has made its way onto the diamond! :?:

And Padres? More like 70s Pirates. The game is in Pittsburgh...

I wear that hat to every Bucs game I attend.

I think the NL one is better looking than the AL one, but both are not that great.

The only All-Star jerseys I really liked were the 05 ones, but maybe it was only because of the names on the back: Buehrle, Garland, Konerko, Podsednik...

I agree. I kinda liked those old ugly-ass unis. Houston, SD, San Fran Orange, Indian Red, and of course, this year's All Star hosts:

Which combo did you like better with those 70's uniforms ? All yellow, like above ? All black...or a combo of both that they would sometimes wear- (yellow pants with black jersey, black pants with yellow jersey) ? Don't forget, they also had a white pinstriped uniform they would occasionally wear at home, or as part of another combo with the yellow/black pants/jerseys. I remember back then, figuring out they had 17 possible uniform combos, and that doubled if you threw in the choice of that yellow or black hat. I like the current Pirate uniforms, and the old ones from the 50's & 60's. Seeing those All-Star shirts gives me flashbacks to the injuries my eyes suffered back in the 70's when they, or the Astros would visit Wrigley and play in front of 5000 fans. :o:

I liked the black top/yellow pants combo for some reason. Never cared for those thick white "pinstripes".
