This can lead to more exposure of the team, which can lead to more ticket sales (and if some kid loves the look, maybe they become a fan for life). Again, it probably won't really happen, but it's not going to hurt either, so what's the harm?
Yes, but your argument kind of assumes that the 1983 uniforms are better or "cooler" than the current uniforms. They were ok last year as a novelty and celebration of the anniversary of the 1983 team. I think our current uniforms are way better than the 1983 uniforms and it's more likely to hook a kid to be a fan for life with our current uniforms than the 1983 uniforms. But we can agree to disagree. There really is no substitue for putting a good product on the field no matter what uniforms they wear. Winning builds a fan base not uniforms (duh!).
