We have to admit the newly established color scheme for the Padres is pretty nice.
It’s only fitting a team in that area would incorporate shades of sandy white, navy and light blue and some yellow in a logo. Their new jerseys are, well, plain, but nothing to complain about.
Go back in history, though, and San Diego donned some amazingly different uniforms.
The brown and yellow alternates are strikingly different from anything we’ve seen. As a matter of fact, no other North American sports franchise has used the two colors together to form their identity.
But, wait, there’s a twist in the story here.
Apparently, we might have to take these off this list in a couple years because the franchise is reportedly trying to reestablish them.
According to a report, Padres Executive Chairman Ron Fowler confirmed to a local radio station earlier this year that the team won't be able to undergo a serious change to their uniforms until 2020.
We’ll see what the future holds, but if it means one of our favorite throwbacks of all time is coming back on a permanent basis, sign us up.
