So today, I wanted to take a look at their uniform change that took place in the fall of 2011. Yes, they are no longer the Florida Marlins as they are now the Miami Marlins, but it's still the same franchise.
Here is the uniform they played with from 1993-2011. Not too shabby and the logo wasn't the worst...
I will have to say the Miami change brought the uniform more to life in my opinion. The logo is a huge upgrade and full of color. The black, red-orange, yellow, blue, white combo of their uniforms stand out much more than the black, white, and teal. I believe when these first hit the market for customers to buy, they were a huge hit.
Comparing the two cards I posted, I think the new uni's look a bit nicer on cardboard. But, since I had a soft spot already for the Marlins, the change doesn't affect my collecting too much. I do think the Miami colors make better jersey/patch cards but I am fine either way in terms of chasing relics.
So what do you guys think? Upgrade? Downgrade? Or are you fine with either uniform?
