panda bear x new era contest

That radical Billy Ripken-era Baltimore Orioles color-scheme fitted pictured above is a super-limited Panda Bear New Era cap, designed by Mr. Noah Lennox himself. Only 80 of these things exist, so you can either attempt to buy one for a retarded amount on eBay, or you can win one right here. I'll make this easy for you: in the comments, tell me what you think are the best-looking team uniforms in sports history. Your choice can come from any sport, but be specific (team/era), and if you pick any team that uses teal or "burnt orange," you're automatically disqualified. I'll pick one winner on Monday, February 4. Oh, the winner will also receive a one-year subscription to the Fader Magazine.

My initial pick echoed blogger matt's choice; the cable car-adorned, goldenrod & royal Warriors jerseys were pure beauty, and continue to stand amongst the slickest any game has ever seen. They're darned-near unf_ckwittable. But, seeing as how they've already been called, I'm going to go ahead and f_ck wit em. My choice is the warm-side-of-the-rainbow themed Houston Astros jerseys of the late 70s and early 80s. Baseball never fails to place me in a coma, but even I'll admit to getting doe-eyed over these. Hell, they even SORT OF match the hat.

1969 Seattle Pilots Road Jersey:

Bright yellow accents on a medium heather jersey make the jersey at once brilliantly colored but not overly conspicuous--form and functionality. However, what make the jersey truly great are the all lowercase type face and the logo. "Seattle" is written in a striking tall and sharp sans-serif font face, the irregularity of which is years ahead of its time. Finally, the logo is minute and positioned to the upper left of the "seattle" outlined in attractive baby blue. The idiosyncratic composition of this jersey is remarkable and resembles something made in the 80's. I would proudly wear this piece on any day of the week.

1996 Lithuanian National Basketball team - designed by Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir and drummer Mickey Hart.
The tie-dyed shirts sport Lithuania's colors: green, red and yellow. A figure of a skeleton -- one of many Dead symbols -- wearing a green Lithuanian shirt is shown reverse-dunking a ball through the hoop, in the center of a ring of fire. On the back is a drawing of a basketball globe with a skelton hand twirling the ball on its index finger.
The Dead became sponsors of the Lithuanian basketball team shortly before the '92 games, and through the band's Rex Foundation, have donated thousands of dollars for children's charities in that country.

Best team uniform?
Probably the one worn by the soccer team Livorno from Italy.
It's a mixture of red and black, and as soon as it's seen by a fan of any other team, you can be sure you'll get your ass kicked.
Livorno are actually openly communists.
So, grab a friend, take a trip to Europe, give your friend a Livorno team dress and head to Italy if you like practical jokes. He'll never know what hit him. Or why.

it's not terribly difficult to come up with the correct choice here...the 1979 world champion pittsburgh pirates uniforms. the classic pinstriped hats, the pitch-perfect piping...they even brought dock ellis back that year so their color scheme was no doubt approved by hallucinogenic enthusiasts

however, if this doesn't capture your fancy, i would also suggest the 1974 zaire world cup jersey. a ferociously cool print of which i have the feeling mr. lennox would approve.

The late 70's - early 80's Milwaukee Brewers ROAD uni's take the cake. All light blue jersey with matching light blue pant accented by navy blue and yellow stripes. Fantastic!

If this uni doesn't ooze pimp, well sir, I would then wish to be colorblind.

Gotta go with 70's Pittsburgh Pirates! how can you pass this pic up?


Father and Son!

The ULTIMATE would be if the O's wore the new Maryland flag Panda Bear hat. But until that happens... I am going with the Pirates.

I'm not a hockey fan, but going by simply the best uniforms, I'd have to go with the Pittsburgh Penguins' game sweaters from '68-72. They were much different from what are worn now and were powder blue and navy. And the logo on the front is awesome - how can you beat a skating Penguin! This was the first time that the logo was included on the team's unis and I think it looks great.

I am definetly gonna have to go with the 1948 Cleveland Indians logo, which is the old school chief wahoo mascot that looks like an old Cherokee Indian or somethin, and this was the last year that the team has won a world series since they fell short to those damn boston red sox tis past year. so check it out....http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.weplay.com/Cleveland/Indians/throwbacks/48.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.weplay.com/Cleveland/Indians/throwbacks/48-jacket.html&h=258&w=271&sz=20&hl=en&start=9&um=1&tbnid=74QwoHdg-D5ReM:&tbnh=108&tbnw=113&prev=/images%3Fq%3D1948%2Bcleveland%2Bindians%2Bjersey%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DG

Here's a few winners...

The number one pimp jersey of all time, hands down, is the late 1970s-1980s Denver Nuggets jersey. Look at Alex English rock that Denver skyline!
Denver Nuggets

I also have a few honorable mentions. Most professional sports leagues are fairly conservative. But the minor leagues go all out to draw fans. My 2nd-4th place finishers are from various minor league affiliates:

2). The Lansing Lugnuts--modern day jerseys. The Lugnuts are a minor league affiliate of the Tigers. They actually used to outsell the Tigers in terms of ticket sales in Michigan up until five years ago.

Lansing Lugnuts

3). The Peoria Rivermen-Once per year, starting in 2005, the junior league hockey team plays for one night and then auctions these disco-themed jerseys off. Imagine body checking somebody dressed like this.

Disco night

4). And finally, my favorite minor league hat is currently the Peoria Chiefs. The mean fire dog strikes fear in the hearts of men, even if Single A baseball players do not. (The Montgomery Biscuits and the Quad City Swing are also great lids!)
