Two classic looks. It wasn’t a championship but it was a semi-final. The National Championship looked good, but it wasn’t the best look for either team. Buster Hey guys-After looking at the TB vs CHI Stanley Cup Finals series, I thought that this could be one of the best dressed series in playoff/championship sports history. I mean, look at them:Is there any others you thought looked really good? Post your ideas here. I would love to see this become an awesome thread. I’ll say it again, Tampa Bay doesn’t have bad uniforms. You guys criticize them for looking like a Leafs/Wings mix, two of the best jerseys in the NHL. In a vacuum, Tampa looks great. It’s just that they look to much like another team. Let’s dock them points for creativity, not pure looks.

They would do well to take their shoulder patch and use it as a starting point. Still, for a franchise with a short history plagued with sartorial conundrum, this is a huge improvement.

Very rare championship matchup. 455 posts 2,511 posts Location:The Canadian Prairies 767 1,761 Regarding Blackhawks/Lightning….I actually agree that it’s going to be a great one. I think we can all agree that what Tampa Bay is wearing is not ideally what they should be wearing – black and blue is what they should be skating out in – but if we’re putting that aside and just talking uniforms as they are? Heck, I’ll say it: Tampa Bay looks great. I love it. It’s clean and crisp, and the blue looks great against Chicago. Throw the tomatoes if you want to, but I think when just talking uniform match ups as they presently are, you have to look at what you’re presently given and strip away all the other “they should be wearing this or that” stuff. And what I’m seeing is a great matchup.And now for something completely different, I’ll throw another matchup out there: 1961 World Series, Pirates vs. Yankees. Possibly two of the top five greatest uniform sets in baseball history pitted against each other. I feel Pittsburgh’s classic vests, just as they were in ’61 from head to toe, were absolutely flawless. I’m not exaggerating either, I can’t think of a single flaw. Just a perfect set (and what they should still be wearing today). Pit that against the timeless Yankee pinstripes (and a beautiful, classy road set), and you get an absolutely perfect championship matchup. It doesn’t hurt either that a moment like Mazeroski’s homer is linked to that matchup forever, too.As for more recent and modern WS match ups, I always felt Indians/Marlins in ’97, Phillies/Yankees in ’09, and Royals/Giants last year were great as well.

I thought each of these were great match-ups, and each offered something different style and color wise. A great Bulls uniform vs. the iconic Lakers’ unis in 1991. A unique style in 1992 that shared the Bulls’ colors while looking very different. And in 1993, the now-entrenched classic vs. something outlandish which still worked great. The second three-peat wasn’t nearly as good, uni-wise.
