As a whole... I thought the uniforms were ok at best. Not good, not bad, just ok.

Then again... I also always find myself comparing them to the first of these special even uniforms I remember seeing. Anyone else remember the terrible "Turn Forward The Clock" uniforms! :censored:

Thanks to you two, I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

Some memories don't need to be reminisced.

I didn't realize those were ACTUAL game jerseys. Like... worn for a regular season series. 

These damn things have lived rent free in the darkest parts of my brain ("the parts you don't talk about at dinner parties") since 1999.

New All-Star mag pads for my FM4000 steel - went with the grey this time because UmpAttire had them on sale for just $50 (last one in stock)!  I had the black pads before, but I think these look pretty sweet, and also go with pretty much every color shirt, maybe even better than black does.  (I also got a new UmpLife mask harness, not pictured - I cut off the two side straps on that - anyone else do that? It seems like they aren't needed.)

If it's the second version I would use them to help hide the extra length of your strap after you adjust everything. Wish the second version had been available when I got mine. It's still the best mask harness available.

No? But I had heard of sales reps for schools being able to get special colors

Right. However, are you (All-Star) going to make small-batch sky blue pads for a marquee university baseball program with sure-fire TV coverage, shelling out millions of 💸 (hey hey hey! Texas A&M is reportedly going pay Jimbo Fisher $75M not to coach)… 

… or to sell to an amateur umpire somewhere in Palookaville, USA? 

Even @Thunderheads doesn’t have that kind of pull.

AGAIN, guys ...... discussions like this need to go over to the equipment board (general) in the future so the discussion can happen there.  This thread is for us to all show off our masks (photos) w/ descriptions.   Conversations with good info will tend to get lost here.

This was sold to me by a member here whom said he was "retiring" it had some used TW pads on it that I found stiff even when warmed up.

 

Well he was recently looking for one so today I am sending it back to him with some silver AS LUC pads

I essentially leased it from him for a season. Now I am sending it back at no charge to him as he is such an awesome guy and done so well with sales here I feel I do not want anything from him other than to use it and call them well.

That has the look of a Nike Ti.

My Nike mask got hit 3 times by foul balls in one game and it came out like this the next day... I contacted Tony from Maskit and he said he could straighten the bars out and powder coat it.  I have to follow up with him again

Once you bend it, it’s never as strong as it used to be. I’ve had the same thing with a wilson TI I was going to get bent back and decided against it.

So what did you do?  Did you send it back to Wilson for a replacement or just keep it, sell it? Etc...
