The long awaited unveiling of the Pittsburgh Penguins third jersey is finally here. Many speculated it would turn out to be the gold jersey from the 1992 season; in actuality it will be the black jersey from that same era. Now Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin will sport the same uniforms Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr made famous during their 1992 Stanley cup run. The Penguins will wear their throwback third jerseys 12 times this season, starting October 22nd against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Meet The Philadelphia Flyers Third Jersey That Never Hit The Ice

1996 Philadelphia flyers unused third jerseys

The 90’s brought several new uniform concepts styles to professional sports. Bright and funky jerseys were designed for expansion teams like the Toronto Raptors, Vancouver Grizzlies, Carolina Panthers, and Jacksonville Jaguars. During the 1996 season, the NHL also debuted the concept of a third alternate jersey for a few teams. The original class included the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Boston Bruins, Los Angeles Kings, Pittsburgh Penguins, Vancouver Canucks, and New York Islanders. Three of them have become some of the most sought after and collectable jerseys out there: The Kings “Burger King”, Islanders “Fisherman” and Ducks “Wild Wing” jerseys all lie near the top of collectors lists.

Ken Loh of The Medick Group designed the New England Patriots logo during the early 90’s and was also the man behind the Los Angeles Kings “Burger King” jersey. Loh was also commissioned by the Philadelphia Flyers to design an alternate jersey for the team in 1995-96. Keeping with the unorthodox style, he designed the following jerseys and alternate logo for the hockey club.

The team ended up choosing to wear a black version of their classic sweaters in 1997. Flyers fans and jersey aficionados, what are your thoughts on the unused Philadelphia concepts?

Lebron James has always enjoyed having a plethora of uniform combinations to choose from. In Cleveland, he brought back just about every Cavaliers throwback jersey in history. Not only did it help with jersey sales, the frequent jersey switches allowed Nike to add several additional colorways to popular Lebron James sneakers.

Now in Miami, King James still likes to switch up jerseys on a nightly basis. The Miami Heat wore 8 different jerseys last season; in 2013-2014 they’ll have 2 more jeresys in their uniform arsenal. Lebron and D-Wade showed off the Heat jerseys on instagram. One is an all red jersey similar to the Christmas uniform from last season, the other is a black jersey modeled off the uniforms the Heat wore during the early 90’s. Check out the jerseys and let us know what you think!
