    I like that in the 2011 game, the one with Vargas and Wedge in the "1984" uniforms, they're wearing sansabelt knickers, thus enabling the appearance of additional stripes.

    Anyone have any vintage Mariner memorabilia? Contact Kevin Martinez and let him know you want to see the Mariners' original colors again. Bring back the Trident!

    Brandon League has never worn a better uniform than the Seattle Mariners' 1981-1986 uniform!

    I love them. I love stripes. Without the pullover tops and sansabelt knickers, there would be a lot less stripes. I am a big fan of the racing stripes on the Mariners' 1981-1986 jerseys. More stripes make a better world. Larry Milbourne in the greatest Seattle Mariners jersey in franchise history! Perhaps the best in baseball history!

    Gaylord Perry won his 300th game in 1982 wearing the Seattle Mariners' best uniform, 1981-1986!

    The Mariners' 1985-1986 road jersey. A game worn Dave Henderson jersey. Looks great!

    Mariners pullover jersey

    Kevin Martinez Seattle Mariners Vice President of Marketing:

    This is what's wanted. This is what's needed. Act now and make it happen! The Mariners, well all teams, but especially the Seattle Mariners, need to adopt the pullover jersey and sansabelt pants as the official on-field game uniform. The sport needs this, the fans have responded, and they want to see it as well. Buttons and belts simply don't belong on the baseball diamond, that is undeniable.

    Just go with something like the fun '85-'86 uniforms and be true to that great era, v-neck pullovers and striped sansabelt pants. The Mariners would be unique looking and the best dressed team in the sport. Was that game on July 1, 2011 a sneak preview of things to come?

    New Seattle Mariners Uniforms

    To Kevin Martinez; VP of Marketing,

    The '80s Night' promotion that was held on July 1, 2011 was a huge success. The Mariners looked great in the "'84" uniforms. They looked so good that it people I've come across believe that it should be their permanent uniforms, well the look specifically from the '85 and '86 seasons. Those uniforms looked both contemporary and retro at the same time! The time is now to make the switch.

    Sincerely,

    Every Breathing Seattle Mariners Fan

    The fans want the old logo, colors and uniforms back. I'm sure John Ellis will understand.

    The Seattle Mariners' 1981-1986 home uniforms were great. The Seattle Mariners 1985 & 1986 road uniforms were great too! Class personified.

    Bull. Mariners fans love the current unis. Not one single M's fan I've talked to agrees with you.

    The fact that the Seattle Mariners' brilliant 1981-1986 uniforms makes certain people hot and bothered convinces me it's very important that the Mariners switch back to their old uniforms and logo permanently! The opposing views are priceless. Non-Mariners fans are jealous of what could and should be, just as I predicted!

    Seattle Mariners Logo

    Please replace the current NATO-looking compass rose logo with the logo and wordmark we all know and love...

    Alvin Davis in the classic Seattle Mariners 1981-1986 cap and Seattle Mariners 1981-1986 BP jersey on his 1987 Topps card! An example of what once was and what could be again! Unique brand identity for the Seattle Mariners!

    The Seattle Mariners looked great from 1981-1986, especially 1985 & 1986!

    Timing

    I said elsewhere that the Warriors are going to wear jerseys with sleeves. Okay, I'm not sure about that, no other team's doing it. Another thing no other team is doing in baseball is outfitting their team in athletic wear. The Mariners can and should do just that. Bring their 1981-1986 uniforms out of retirement! The timing is perfect to do just that! After the Felix press conference, it would be great to hear and see that the Mariners are setting trends and blazing trails by wearing their best uniforms in team history, which in turn would be the best in the game.

    Let's say the Mariners announced tomorrow that they're changing their uniforms and without saying so, the new uniforms would be the uniforms they wore from 1981-1986. The average Mariner fan wouldn't know they're from the '80s, they would see them as new, unique and different and much better suited in the HD era. Let's not kid ourselves, these uniforms haven't been worn apart from a game in 2011, for 27 years., so not many people would identify them with the Argyros era. Compared with the Mariners current uniforms which are dull, generic, dark, tired and convey a false aura of being "traditional" with the awful piping down the front of the jersey and side of the pants, they would be seen as fresh and new. Quite frankly, apart from signing Felix to a new contract, bringing back their 1981-1986 uniforms is the best move the Mariners can make. It really needs to happen.

    It's time for the Mariners to stand out.
