With the NBA tip-off just about two months away, there have been a few teams unveiling new uniforms that they will sport for the 2010-2011 season. These announcements have started a chain reaction of articles listing the best and worst NBA jerseys of all time. Some have been called ugly, which they are, but despite that, we think they are kind of awesome.
Check out some of our favorites below and let us know if you agree, disagree or have a favorite of your own!
1990 New Jersey Nets
1995-2001 Vancouver Grizzlies
1997-1998 Milwaukee Bucks (It looks like the opening screen of Buck Hunter; just saying)
1962-1971 Golden State Warriors
1993-1994 Seattle Supersonics
These are just a few of our favorites. Be sure to check out complete lists published on streetlevel.com and bleacherreport.com.

Okay, just a few more shots from the National Sports Collectors Convention that we attended a couple of weeks ago.
In the late 1930's teams were experimenting with different fabrics for their uniforms. Here is a shot of what was known as "Palm Beach" fabric, most likely used during spring training.
This is Paul Dean's "Palm Beach" jersey. The fabric is really light and would have definitely been a much cooler option than the heavy wool that was being worn at the time. However, from what we understand, the big reason that this fabric never took off was because there were issues with the jerseys shrinking.
This one really blew us away. Check out this shot of a game worn Roberto Clemente glove.
In the shot below you can see an image where he is wearing the same glove.
Like we said last week, there is a lot to be seen at this show. If you're in Chicago next August be sure to check it out.
The latest addition for this fall has arrived! The NFL Touchdown Tee is here! Check out some of the teams below or go to mitchellandness.com to see what other teams we have!
Bobby Thomson, the man who hit what is perhaps the greatest home run in baseball history, passed away yesterday at the age of 86. If you're not familiar with "The Staten Island Scot," this is what you really need to know.
Great stuff. Rest in Peace Mr. Thomson.
