Looks like we can add the Braves to the list of MLB teams that are going for a new look this upcoming season. Once again, retro is the way to go. Personally, I like the trend. To this point we have seen three teams unveil a new, retro-style uniform for 2012. The Mets did very little to change their uniforms and make them more classic looking, simply removing the outline from their jerseys. Then, there was Toronto announcing they were going back to their old uniforms, which in my opinion kick the crap out of the futuristic ones they had been rocking in recent years.
The Braves jersey you see above was recently featured on OnTheField.com, but the link has since been removed. Apparently the Braves were saving the unveiling of their new cream-color jerseys for a special occasion. In any event, these looks pretty sweet. Also, I like the idea of making the jerseys just a home alternate so they retain some of their luster. Keep the retro-looking jerseys coming.
