TBT - Cincinnati Reds Edition

Last week the Reds donned their Big Red Machine era uniforms and officially retired Pete Rose's number. Although his number was never "officially" retired, the only other player to wear #14 since 1963 was Pete Rose Jr.  Junior played a total of 11 games for the Reds in September of 1997.

The Reds throwback uniforms were technically their 1976 uniforms. You can see the bicentennial patch on the right sleeve. But I liked the look of Joe Morgan's 1974 card and decided to mimic it using the Reds current second baseman, Brandon Phillips.

  1. I love a well-done 1974 custom, and this certainly fits the bill. Great job!
