I dont recall seeing that type of neckline back when pullovers were the rage. 49 138 posts Forums Home 18,004 Initialisms Suck 786 Members 46,552 posts I think the Mets made a wise decision in never going powder blue. Royal and orange simply do not go well with powder, at least not nearly as well as they do with grey.

What I don’t like about the prototype is that there’s a white outline on the NY but not in the racing stripes. Looks mismatched.Amazing find though, can’t believe I never knew about this.

To me, the most interesting aspect of it (besides it being powder blue, because everyone wore powder blue back then) is that it has a different interlocking NY. And overall, it actually doesn’t look half bad. I wonder why the ultimately ended up scrapping it? Link to post Lot of outlines on that “NY” logo, as well.

I’m guessing 1982 or 1983, when the switch to the racing stripes was underwayIt looks like they could not choose between v-neck or button-front with placket. I went with what was eventually chosen and went with v-neck. To save time, I opted for a squashed cap logo rather than spend a lot of time on illustrator trying to get an old Giants logo to look right.By the end, two things occurred to me: This uniform sucked. BAD. Doubleday and Cashen did seem to be a check, at least early on, against Wilpon’s Bat!@#$ crazy instincts. kevinmets Posted May 2, 2012 Link to post 39 Posted May 2, 2012 Share on other sites sportstar1212 65 0 4 8,272 posts Forums Home Sign in to follow this Top Shelf 53,285 posts Link to post Members Share this post MattD1972 Share on other sites Members The NY used here is the same one they wore on their jackets at the time.Personally I like the way powder blue looks with blue & orange, I wouldn’t want them to wear it now but it would have been fine in the 80s.

I would love to have seen this logo on a grey button-down jersey, with piping, analogous to the Giants’ secondary road jersey which resembles the one used in the 80s:But powder blue would have looked awful on the Mets, as it did on all teams apart from the Royals, who did it well with this uni:(By the way, the guy in the original picture is my brother, Mike Cesarano.
