    Correct, Harry is sporting the 1905 Reds away jersey with it's classic late 19th century turned up collar.

    As a child of the '80s, I believe all teams need to adopt powder-blue road unis, except the Astros, who must return to their Dreamsicle jerseys, and the Pirates and A's, who shall wear yellow.

    Only if we can have Journey, Foreigner, and REO Speedwagon blaring from the speakers in-between innings. Hey, come to think of it, let's do it!!

    If you notice it seems a lot of the expansion teams starting from the 1961 Angels and Senators (who beacame the Rangers) and then the AStros and Mets....Pads....Expos....and so on.............those are the teams that always seem to change their uniform and they always seem to have the ugliest.

    They can never stick to one design or they put out really bad designs (Astros.....Padres....that Angel outfit with the wings?? and all that Disney stuff) Most of the earlier teams had their uniforms for so many years that there was no sense in changing them and finally they became classics beacuse of it. (It helps if the team always wins...like the Dodgers and Yankees)

    I think the Padres new unis and the Astros...look very good.

    That black stuff started with i think the White Sox.....and then the Falcons in the NFL got into that beacuse of Glanville.....so then it became cool and now it's just a cliche.

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.
    Of course, you are correct. I had forgotten about that! Anyway, I like the navy blue and would vote for that uniform again with the addition of the wishbone C on the cap and the vest. The white/red cap (sometimes called "ice cream caps" by Kevin Mitchell) is a trademark of those uniforms.

    It's an attempt to catch up to the branding of the Traditionals, in the NHL it's the Orginal Six, in the NBA Celtics, Knicks and Lakers.

    Not content to let a brand settle into the subconcsious of the fans teams attempt to redefine their look in curent standards.

    The Mets colors were a mixture of Giant Orange and Dodger Blue and should have stayed as thus, Houston saddled themselves with a bad name not once but twice. The Rangers and Angels have changed more often then most and the newer teams still give me WFL feelings at times.

    Don't you think the "oval C" with the navy blue outline looked much better on the "ice cream caps" than the all red "wishbone C"? The thin blue outline gave that cap some character. I don't know what it is, but with the '61-'66 uniforms, I really like that "oval C."

    If you want to look at a really cool site for Reds memorabilia, go to google and check out "Major Dave Grob's uniforms and equipment." What a collection! I love the site.

    Yes, I do, but it's the only time I've ever seen non-wishbone C lettering on a Reds uniform. I was too young to remember, but I bet there was a fuss over that back in 1961.
