Hello! For this week’s Uni Watch Premium article over on Substack, I’ve done a deep dive into “What if?” uniforms, most of which involve prototype designs that were produced (and, in some cases, officially unveiled, like the 49ers’ infamous 1991 helmet) but, for various reasons, never made it onto the field, ice or court. Each one represents an intriguing road not taken, and in this article I’ve covered well over a dozen examples spread across the Big Four pro leagues. Even if you know a lot of about prototype designs, I’m pretty sure there will be at least a couple of examples here that you haven’t seen before!
You can read the first part of the article here. In order to read the entire thing, you’ll need to become a paid subscriber to my Substack (which will also allow you to access my Substack archives). And this is a particularly good time to subscribe, because the annual NHL and NBA Season Previews are both coming up in the next few weeks.
My thanks, as always, for your support and consideration.
