Mariners may change uniform color scheme in 2014

In doing some Internet sleuthing, Chris Creamer of SportsLogos.net found a Facebook post by Ebbets Field Flannels, which was “quickly deleted”:

“Doing some informal consulting for the Seattle Mariners on their 2014 uniforms. They are going creme instead of white for the home (we love it). We are gently pushing for them to lose the teal and adapt old gold as the secondary color after navy.”

Creamer points out that the color scheme would be similar to that of the Seattle Pilots in 1969, before they moved to Milwaukee to become the Brewers. The Mariners debuted in 1977 and also used a similar color scheme until rebranding in 1993.

    Losing the teal can only lead to good things.

      Ask the Marlins.

    I dont like the teal tops, but I love the home whites and the home blue. Addition by subtraction guys, no need for an overhaul.

    they should go red as they always bleed out by the all star break.

    Teal sucks… Old school baby!! It even makes financial sense.

    No, no, no. Those old Mariners uniforms were UGLY!! Go back and look at some Alvin Davis baseball cards, people!

    Lose the teal tops but the regular home jerseys are classic.

    I like when teams use creme instead of white. It’s got a very old school look. Having said that, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the teal. In fact, I would think that most Mariners fans would love the teal tops. It should bring back memories of Griffery, Martinez, Buhner, and Johnson.

    Mariners have some of the best “non-alternate” uniforms in baseball. I like their current cap as well, but I LOVE the trident logo. Tweaking would be OK, but to compare Mariners use of teal to Marlins use of teal is not cool.

    It’s a shame to lose the teal. As a kid, and even now, I have always loved their uniforms. Design change is one thing, but changing colors never makes sense to me. Maybe I’m just nostalgic, but changing colors doesn’t change box scores.

    Teal is awful, but navy blue is the most overused color in baseball.

    Only one team wears green (Oak.) as its primary color. Two wear yellow (Oak, Pitt.). A few have traditionally worn black (Pitt., Balt., SF). Colorado wears purple.

    But mostly it’s a blue and red league. I’d like to see a little more variety — but with basic greens, golds and browns included in the mix, not teal. If the Mariners won’t break the mold, at least the Padres could ditch their undistinguished blue/gold color scheme and go back to the traditional brown and gold.
