    Chase only played for the Reds from 1916-18 so that couldn't be him.

    This fellow was the 3rd baseman on the Cubs, famous trivia answer.




    1909 Reds Road Uniforms, the player leaning on the bat is Hans Lobert, fastest man in the game.

    He once raced a horse around the bases following an exhibition game. On October 12, 1910 at Field Day in Cincinnati, he was clocked rounding the bases in 13.8 seconds.

    Yes! I'm firmly in that camp as well. Never got to see them in a game (born in '71), but I think those unis are far and away the best.

    Man, I am lovin' all the old pictures! When I get home I'll have to save some of them to my hard drive.

    Back to the subject of the other teams for a minute, I started to name this thread something like "Best and Worst Uniforms Today", but then I figured that "best" is entirely in the eye of the beholder and there would be 15 different teams mentioned.

    I really do think that most teams have pretty good uniforms right now, but as mentioned earlier, some need to take advantage of the opportunity to use something besides black or navy.

    Some teams' uniforms ain't all that great, but they are classics and shouldn't be changed. My question is this: How long should a uniform be in use before it can be deemed "a classic", and which teams fit the category right now?

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    This is my favorite too. I wish they would go back to this look. Also every team that is using black should dump it. They all look hideous.

    I think these old-timers did quite well without stirrups.

    WVRedsFan,

    Navy blue was indeed the secondary color of the '61-'66 uniforms, used as an outline color in the "oval C" on the home uniforms, cap and numbers, and as an outline for "CINCINNATI," the cap's "oval C", and the uniform numbers on the road grey's, but the vest sleeves were adorned with black. The black band was originally used as a memorial to the death of Powell Crosley, on one sleeve. The second black band was added later. Later on, names were added to the backs of those uniforms, under the number, and black was also used for the names.

    If they must have a secondary color, I much prefer the use of navy blue. I would much prefer that they stick to red and white with the only black belonging to the shoes.

    I like their current uni's. I could stand more red in the away uniforms but by and large, they are very classy and pleasing.

    I think the all whites are ugly. The A's uniforms are ugly too and they are similiar. They look like "Men in tights". At least pen stripes or trim on the pants takes away from the male ballerina look.

    The Cubs away blues have got to go, once and for all. I keep waiting for Ryno and Jodi Davis to reappear.

    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
