Marlins’ Bizarro Uniforms

So I’m watching the Yankees/Marlins game tonight and Miami is wearing their new/alternate uniforms: black top, orange hat.

Pretty awful combo there. But I’m suddenly struck with an inspiration. What would that look like if it were reversed like a photo-negative?

If that looks familiar to you, it should. We jump in the wayback machine to 1993, the Marlins’ inaugural season:

That’s right. The Marlins new uniforms are the photo-opposites of the ones they wore when they came into existence. You couldn’t do a more perfect 180-degree switch without adding in the pinstripes. I hope some guy in marketing got a nice, fat raise for clicking a button in MS Paint.
