    2006 MLB "Turn Back The Clock" Games

    I know that a few here like to read news related to uniforms and there are some who enjoy seeing old throwback uniforms back out on the field again. So I'll start this thread to post news about "Turn Back The Clock" games as they are announced.

    We'll start with A's vs Giants, June 23...

    Now, this ought to be pretty!

    from sfgiants.com:

    "Orange Fridays," in which fans are encouraged to wear orange on Fridays and partake in orange-themed promotions and special events, will return, starting with orange fireworks on Opening Night, April 7, and including the Giants wearing their 1982 orange jerseys as part of '80s Retro Night on June 23.
    This will give you an idea of how the Giants will look:



    They'll be playing the A's. If the A's go along with the retro theme, they may go with one of the following, each of which was worn in the early 80s:

    Because the people who didn't have to endure them are running the fashion world now.

    Here's another game to look out for if you're a lover of those colorful 70s: Astros at Padres, August 4, 2006. This wasn't exactly the golden age of baseball uniforms, but I grew up in the 70s loving all that colorful stuff. Every kid I knew who collected those plastic souvenir batting helmets had the really colorful ones in their collection, such as the Pirates' yellow, the Astros' orange, the Padres' brown and yellow, the Orioles' black, white, and orange, etc.

    I wish some teams would bring back the bright colors, but within the confines of classic baseball uniform styles, much like the Astros, Pirates, and Padres did in the very early 70s, when they still used belts and buttons, and before they went the pullovers and wild designs. The Astros have done this to a great extent with their current sets, but I'd like to see them emphasize the brick red more and the black less. There's way too much emphasis on black in MLB these days.

    Anway, here's an approximation of what the Astros and Padres looked like in 1976. I couldn't find a decent picture of an actual 1976 Padres uniform in action. The picture of McCovey is from 1974.

    The Braves wore their 1966 uniforms against the Phillies last night. They're not drastically different from what they're wearing forty years later, but notice the stripes on the socks! Awesome!

    Anytime you need a Mid-70's Padres google "Randy Jones" or "Dave Winfield". The third picture is a "Mitchell & Ness" reproduction of the '76 Padres.

    Do not adjust the color of your monitor. Them actually are the real colors.

    I love 70's uniforms. Much, much better than the black variants of uniforms that started in the 90's and still carry on...

    Listed at 5'8". I'd say he's closer to 5'6" in reality, but man can he generate some power with those short arms.

    I was trying to find a home Padres jersey, since they'll most likely be wearing the home jersey this summer, so that's why I didn't consider the brown road ones. That last picture of the Mitchell and Ness repro is probably just like what they'll wear this summer. Count on Mitchell and Ness to mess up some of the details, of course.

    Love these games....and seeing the old school wacky jerseys.....M&N Did mess up on the Winfield jersey, but 99% of the time there are rock solid on making the throwbacksof exact quality........Have the Reds used any throwbacks in recent years.........they have July 2nd vs Indians as some kind 1869 Red Stockings vintage game, but it says it follows the regualr game.......any idea what that is all about...........

    I have a dream that in 25 years during "Turn back the Clock" games people will be saying, "What's up with their pants being all the way down over their shoes? That's hideous! Thank God they don't do that anymore."

    I freaking love the Astros' rainbow uniforms. If they brought them back, they would have instant hipster cred. Apart from, you know, being from Texas.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    The day they cracked them out was a banner day for the folks who liked Peter Max. The fashion world was against it... but we all liked Enos Cabell's name.
