Question Padres back to original color style

Are Padre fans interested in going back to brown?

Should the Padres go back to their original colors?

As long as they win, the colors really don't mean much. That said, I like the old school. never saw a Friar in blue.

Old school works for me also and reps the Pads better. I think the colors are important because they represent the identity of the Padres more than blue. Plus blue has sort of already been taken by other teams and brown is unique in MLB.

Do you remember their original colors? Brown and gold. The road unis were light beige instead of gray. They had friar's robes for jackets. Oh how I miss Rafael Robles.

Friar's robes for jackets is news to me, that would be next level jackets.


Padre brown started in 1969, familiar with the 80's color format.

The pads in a uniform like this would be epic. (of b.card)


He was the 51st pick in 1968, the card is from 1971.

The Padres used those colors for throwback games. For promotion. I like those colors. I also love when they have the Camos on. I think those are my favorite. Wouldn't mind the camos being the main color.

Padres have been using the military uniforms for a while now and throwbacks are always interesting. The best part of the Padre military uniforms are the solid brown batting helmets.

gocharge, thanks for pulling up that RR BB card. What memories!

gooey, I agree. The cammos look sharp.
