    Default The New Pittsburgh Pirates BP Jersey Is Sweet. It Needs To Be Permanant

    Today, the Pittsburgh Pirates 2009 First Round pick Tony Sanchez on Twitter, tweeted out the yellow beauty of a jersey you'll see below. I had no idea what the jersey was going to be used for. It's basically the yellow version of the Friday Black jersey. Considering it's Tony Sanchez's I figured it was the Spring Training jersey which would be great since it gets rid of the hideous McClatchy logo on the chest. Unfortunately it's not that. I talked to a gentleman at The Uniwatch Blog and he confirmed that it was indeed the new Batting Practice jersey. Every team in MLB is going to use a new BP jersey this season.

    This jersey is awesome in so many ways. Combined with the Black (Friday) jersey, the Pittsburgh Pirates basically would have a collection of jerseys they last had in the late 1970's!! Now, I know that the Pirates aren't going to use this yellow jersey as anything more than a BP one right now, but they should re-consider it making it part of their Regular Season attire. The Oakland A's just introduced an Alternate using yellow as a primary color returning them to the late 1970's in color scheme as seen HERE.

    I will be curious to see is how it looks with white pants. Yellow and white tend to clash in regards to hues but nobody is really going to the extreme and wearing black pants opposite side yellow (I would completely support for the comeback of the bumble Bee uniform color combinations).

    What do you think?



    The 1970's collection :



    The 2009/10/11 collection :



    I had some fun here. I created a yellow version of the black jersey and, did a pinstripe jersey with sleeves, using the "P" sort of in the style of the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees

    The 2009/10/11 Collection (PLUS) :

    Ahhh Kip! - the new yellow bp jersey is ugly!! lol Even though I don't like the jersey, I like how the bucs aren't just sticking to the same old thing... Nice to liven it up a little! On the other hand, the white pinstripe "P" jersey is pretty nice!

    I guess it's a matter of personal taste "Yellow" can be tough to handle in that abundance. I just always liked yellow jerseys. I think they're really unique, stick out (good or bad) and they are a part of Pittsburgh. Those yellow jerseys remind me of the 70's teams that were good.

    Plus, artistically, I am bored to death on white and gray jerseys. Every team looks the same almost. The striping/[piping is so small if it's even there on most teams you can't even tell the differences. So many teams use the same colors (black, red, navy blue) that even the hat selection is boring

    I'd love to see mroe the 70's technicolored uniforms come back even if it's a couple of alternates per team.

    I kinda like that pinstripe one myself the more i look at it. It's sharp

    I personally like the grey one with "Pittsburgh" written across the front....

    Good stuff Kipper...My least favorite of the current uni's is the grey. I'm actually not a fan of the sleeveless pinstripe either...but I like what you did putting sleeves on it....it looks much sharper.

    The yellow....I like it, would be a sweet alternate, and maybe at this point a good BP jersey...I think an abundance of yellow like that might wear out on me quickly....I like it, just not sure I like an entire field of it.

    Its not that bad. But, not that great.
    The "P" pinstripe is sharp though.

    I always really liked the black road jerseys from the 70s. Actually, I ordered a Stargell one last week.

    Pinstripes at home. Gray on the road. Why do they keep screwing around with this?!! Have some integrity and establish some freakin' tradition. At some time or another during each season the Pirates look like a softball team from the local beer league. And I'm not referring to the quality of play - not this time, at least.

    the pirates have never really had a tradition uniform wise. the longest one we currently hjave is the "P" font which we are properly starting to use and market as our main logo and identity and hopefully killing off the McClatchy Pirate.

    the pirates screw with uniforms, they arent the yankees and cubs where the uniforms have gone unchanged.

    i like the idea of these bold colored uniforms being alternates and not daily uniforms. i do like the sleeves on the pinstripes. more uniformed with the others but I think using the "P" works better with the stripes than the text Pirates logo

    ?? The "gold" in Black and Gold has always been "yellow". Gold has always been a figure of speech. The ONLy time a true gold has ever been used in one of the 3 major Pittsburgh sports teams is with the early 2000 Pittsburgh Pirates and their use of a glossy vegas gold. they use "vegas gold" still but without the gloss it looks like khaki.

    OPther than that, the Pirates have always used a base yellow color with an exception to the early 70's when they were using a mustard yellow color. The Steelers "gold" is yellow and the Pens of the 80's and 90's, their "gold" was actually a yellow with more of an orange hue to it.

    So... it is yellow.

    I like the jersey but I'd have to see the whole uniform to be honest. I hated the unis of the '70s, especially the prison hats.
