Before I get into today's topic, I want to just mention something first..
Or more to the point, ask a question..
Does anyone else have those days where you're looking for something you know you have but can't find it regardless of where you look and for how long you look? It drives me insane to be looking for something I know I have and can't find it..
Anyway... On to today's topic.. Throwback uniforms on cards!
I've seen a few of these over the years, oddly enough though, mainly in 1992 sets. It's something I like seeing but at the same time, feel it would be too tough to collect, so...
I just want to highlight the ones I've found..
Seeing as the 1991 Score set has a few players in these uniforms, I wouldn't be surprised if the photos were taken on the same day, or if they were a regular uniform choice on certain days.
This was the uniform they wore in 1917.
Even the current uniform is somewhat of a throwback, as they used the current style in 1951.
Bill Swift in what looks like a throwback to the 1942 Giants uniforms.
They did these ones at least once.
They also did these ones..
From the information I found, it looks like the 1925 uniforms.
I can tell from the patch on the front.
And here's the image from the Hall Of Fame's Dressed to the Nines exhibit online.
Here's another look at the uniform Bill Swift was wearing above.
A couple Phillies from 1942.
The road uniforms were rather interesting, with "PHILS" written across the front..
Here's some photos of Phillies from 1942.
Again, Dressed to the Nines
This one is more difficult to pin down.. The Indians used this style a couple times
1910-1914, though the Dressed to the Nines show collars on those
1929-1932, which looks like the likely time frame.
This is the one I think..
Juan Gonzalez in a throwback that I don't know what they're throwing back to.
I know I have others but I'm going to leave it here..
Do you know of any cards that show players in throwback uniforms?
