PLA friend Chris Creamer of Sportslogos.net broke the great uniform story of the Tampa Bay Rays coming up with 1979 “faux pas” uniforms for their game against the Detroit Tigers on June 30.
Instead, they’ve been re-created to look as though they could have been worn in 1979, same with the hat which is described as having an alternate colored front panel and lower case lettering of a “t” and a “b.”.
The jerseys will be power blue pullovers, with alternate sleeve trim, and a patch, maybe something along the lines of this look.
Can’t wait to see the jerseys on the last day of the month at Tropicana Field.
Authentic Store Buzz: When folks have been coming into the store lately, they’re drawn like magnets to the new Nike 2012 authentic NFL jerseys. Everyone wants to touch them and examine the many different fabrics used to make the jersey.
Among the latest arrivals we mentioned last week, the Packers Clay Matthews, Miami's Reggie Bush, and the Lions Matthew Stafford (pictured above, left to right).
