Sports Legends in the Wrong Uniforms: Willy Mays on the Mets, Joe Namath on the Rams, and more.

Cool link, kirkaracha. I thought I'd see Johnny Unitas' picture in a Chargers uniform. Maybe that's too disturbing.

I completely forgot that Ewing played in Seattle. Bobby Orr in a Blackhawk uniform is the one that bothers me the most.

Same here cant believe the Bobby Orr pick,does anyone else see that the pic of Babe Ruth has his jersey saying"Baves"instead of "Braves"?

Would somebody please explain to me why Jerry Rice is even bothering to play for the Broncos?

Jerry Rice is man I don't know he use to be the man now he's like a running joke. Hey was there a picture of Oj Simpson ina 49ers uni?

Surprised they didn't mention Joe Montana on the Chiefs. Seeing Wade Boggs in a Yankee uniform always creeped me out, too.

Other pictures that could be added to the list: Borje Salming, Detroit Red Wings jersey Yogi Berra, New York Mets uniform

Or Johnny Unitas in a San Diego Chargers uniform.

How about Gretzky playing for the St Louis Blues for a third of a season, though he did move on to the Rangers after that.

Jordan in a Wizards uniform

There's nothing wrong with Pele in a Cosmos uniform. If not for that NASL signing, I'd never have seen the guy play as a kid.

OTM with the Jordan. I wish he'd never have come back to play with the Wizards. I mean do what you want, but the 'romance' of watching him conclude his career with that shot against Utah..... <sigh>

MJ in a Wizards uni is nothing--how about a White Sox (farm) uniform? That's craziness.

O.J. Simpson in anything other than a prison uni. Pamela Anderson in anything other than a Home Improvement uni. David Lee Roth in anything other than the yellow California Girls Garanimals.

Nothing beats seeing Gordie Howe in a Whalers uni...

AMajorman, you're right...in that pic the Babe does play for the Baves! rcade, you're also right about Pele'...and I believe that's Kyle Rote, Jr. of the Dallas Tornado behind him in that pic. It's hard to choose which one of these is the most disturbing but Willie Mays looks REALLY old for a baseball player in that Mets uni. He looks like he's playing in some Legends game...
